2001 Renault Kangoo RXE 1.9 diesel turbo from UK and Ireland
Best car I've ever owned, cheap and cheerful
Year 1: stuck turbo valve, dealer repaired under warranty. 15000 miles this year.
Year 2: No Faults, Tires replaced due to wear.
Put car in for service at Renault dealer and ended up driving for 3 miles before discovering there was no oil whatsoever in the engine, dealer forgot to fill it back up after service!!! 15000 this year.
Year 3: Front Driver speaker blown, CD Player/Radio has a lot of static build up for first 5 minutes of engine running in damp weather.
Front Offside, piston side brake disk wears down and creates a gouge in the brake rotor, replaced both front brake rotors and brake pads.
2 Front tires replaced due to wear.
Added a tow bar, very easy to fit.
15000 miles this year.
Year 4: Same brake pad as year 3 causes another gouge in rotor. Going to learn to replace myself to cut costs.
10000 miles this year so far.
Great car for a young family going places.
Quick off the mark when it counts.
Very easy to maintain.
Car is classed as a van so requires reinforced tires which are about £50 each.
Car is very economical on the fuel, at todays prices £38 fills the tank and I get around 450 miles to that.
Diesel engine is quite noisy, but not uncomfortably so.
The car itself is very cheap to buy new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
