A very smart buy
I got a recall on a suspension part, which got replaced. And other than a flat tire the car has never given me any trouble.
I am very happy with my Renault Clio. I find it very reliable and comfortable (A/C works perfectly after a bit over three years every-day use). It needs service once a year and the dealer is very efficient and quick (if you call in advance to make an appointment). I have heard many comments, both good and bad, about the Renault Clio. But I would definitely purchase a Renault car again. I am also considering buying a Nissan Platina (in Europe it's a Renault Thalia or Clio sedan). It doesn't have the Renault service standards (needs service more often in order to maintain the factory guarantee) but it should be as reliable as my Renault Clio, with added trunk space (trunk space in the Clio is sometimes not enough). I drive it to work every day (about 100kms every day) and feel comfortable and safe in it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
