2002 Renault Clio 172 2.0 16v from UK and Ireland
As excitable as a child in a candy shop
The exhaust system has come loose at the manifold.
This causes irregular 'putting' from the tail pipe.
There is also a resonating buzz when thrashing through the gears.
The front suspension also makes a noise from the rubbing on the exhaust system???
This car is a lot smoother than what i originally expected.
Reckon it is chipped to only perform at 4000 rpm. This allows smooth driving at lower revs.
Looks are subtle and not so 'rude boy'.
Catches out other drivers who think it is just a Clio.
Lovely well designed interior.
Some of the controls don't seem quite right, e.g. the wiper controls.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
