2002 Renault Clio Extreme 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Nice looking, nippy car. Pity about the electrics
My son has a Clio 1.2 Extreme with an 02 plate. He was overtaking a HGV and the engine cut out with vehicles coming the other way. Nearly a parents worst nightmare. The centre preheater fault light came on and stayed on. I understand that this light is for diesel models, his is a petrol model.
I suspected that there was an electrical fault and checked the connectors around the engine. This seemed to clear it but it did the same a day later.
I asked the local Renault dealer for advice, but they were less than helpful. All they want to do is take the car in and make money out of you. Having read the other reviews, I can now see that there is a serious electrical wiring problem with this car.
Any advice from others that are experiencing these problems would be helpful.
Nice looking, nippy car. Pity about the electrics.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
