2003 Renault Clio 60BHP Billabong Dynamique 1.5 DCI from UK and Ireland
A Wee Beauty!
There has been a rattling noise which progressed to a squeak from the offside front - Drivers side. The engine mounting bracket has been replaced.
When the tilt sunroof is open at halfway there is considerable vibration noise from the sunroof.
The car feels sturdy and holds the road well.
It does not feel 'heavy' for a diesel engine, and is just as responsive as a petrol car. Nippy.
Fuel Consumption is superb - with a full tank I am getting around 650 miles. Roughly 60-69 MPG. I do not do a lot of long distance driving - this figure is composed of a few 20 mile journeys on the motorway, and several 6 - 10 mile journeys to and from work.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Just a little tip on the sunroof vibration. Crack one window down just a bit and it will take care of the vibration.

I own a billabong 1.5 dci 2003.
The only thing is the sunroof has started to leak onto the drivers and passengers seats...
Has anyone had the same problem, and if so how much to repair.

As an owner of a Renault Clio 1.2 16V Petrol Billabong 03 model, I am just puzzled why they have a pre ignition coil like diesel cars; I didn't think petrol cars had them.
Please could you confirm this is correct to have this on my car.
