Versatile, but with reliability issues
Coil went on way to work at 50k miles, and the car stopped on the road. Had to ring the AA to recover, and had to wait a week for a new coil to be fitted.
Catalytic converter went at 70k miles; had to limp home at 20 mph due to loss of power for 70 miles. €800 for a new one, but got a spurious one for €200, which did the job fine.
Water pump housing cracked and started leaking water at 80k miles. Replacement cost about €100 in total, but I'm lucky the engine didn't overheat, as it lost most of its coolant.
Back door always slammed hard into the body when closing, as the struts offered little resistance.
Electric windows very slow, but didn't stop working.
Safety device to keep the back doors closed when filling with petrol gave trouble, in that the doors were staying locked after closing the petrol cap, and then it stopped working altogether.
Very spacious car, and very versatile, as it could be used as a car or van very easily.
The car felt solid on the road, and handled well.
Plenty of extras, with remote steering controls and remote locking etc.
High driving position.
The car was slow and under-powered; felt like you were carrying a load all the time, as the weight of the car was too much for the 1.2 engine.
Suspension was hard and felt like a van to drive.
Usual Renault unreliability issues.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
