2002 Renault Clio 1.2 from UK and Ireland
A possible death trap
Severe problem with the suspension.
Purchased the car via a Hire Purchase Agreement in June this year and within 6 weeks off ownership a fault with the suspension has resulted in the car being deemed a write off.
The dealership do not want to get involved and state its simply an insurance matter, the Finance Company blame the dealership.
I am now left with no car, a possible claim on my insurance, thus loss of my no claims bonus and the option of getting into debt to sue over my personal loss and personal injuries. Think it's a disgrace that such a large well known company can get away with selling substandard vehicles, so much for consumer protection. Will never get in another Renault Car as long as I live.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
