I purchased this car for my driving school, but had three driving tests terminated because of warning lights coming on. I like the car, but not the unreliability.
Was informed I would find the diesel more reliable. This was a big mistake, because the same problems persisted.
Still, I got the 2002 petrol recently, and took it to the dealer once again regarding the warning lights. The lights went out when I took it to dealer. I paid them £40.00 on collection, and was told they could not determine the fault with the lights off.
Rang Renault to complain, and they suggested I leave car with them for a week. Reluctantly I did this, and was informed on collection, "no faults". On the way home the lights came on. With a diesel car they informed me they can only detect when the light is on, and this came on very intermittently. We must bear in mind that driving examiners would not take this vehicle on a test with warning lights on.
The warning lights came on, so I went to a dealer at 8.15am on Saturday morning. I said, "please put the car on your computer to find the fault". They said, "sorry we are too busy".
This car has full dealer service history.
