2010 Renault Kangoo Passenger 1.6 petrol from Australia and New Zealand


Great practical Swiss army knife passenger van


CV boots...

General Comments:

Actually really reliable. Bought with higher mileage, but had a new clutch by the previous owner. Brake pads done as well and cam belt in another 30,000km.

Drives like a van not a car, but that's to be expected. Acceleration is adequate rather than rapid, but ride quality and general refinement is very good. Quiet on the road.

Quite economical and the motor doesn't use or leak a drop of oil. Oil is as clean as new when time to change, so it's been serviced obviously and in excellent condition.

Gear change is good and long distance is no problem. Cruises well at 110 km per hour. Quite happy with it actually, and whilst not in love with it, I cannot part with it, as it's just so god damn versatile and practical that I know that as soon as I let it go, then I will regret it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2010 Renault Kangoo 16v Wheelchair Accessible 1.6 diesel from UK and Ireland


Great vehicle for wheelchair access


Overall there are no faults.

Steering wheel marked slightly.

Door handles wear on rear sliding door.

Normal use.

General Comments:

I'm concentrating on why I think this vehicle is fantastic for wheelchair access - it's not easy looking for a wheelchair accessible vehicle, and a Renault Kangoo provides a great option.

3 seats plus a wheelchair.

Manual or electric lift can be installed.

Not too big or 'van like'. Easy to park and drive in general.

We have two of these vehicles at work as well, best in the class for disabled use.

What does that mean that the steering wheel is “marked slightly”? Is that an alignment issue or something else? Not really sure if that’s the fault of the Kangaroo itself or maybe just a pothole.

Probably means a blemish on the steering wheel itself, purely cosmetic.

Agreed, not sure why someone would interpret a 'marked' steering wheel as being an alignment issue, most strange.

Maybe for the same reason some cosmetic imperfection on the wheel is blamed on the manufacturer, which also doesn’t make sense. If the “mark” is like a mark with archery or any other activity which involves aim (“hit your mark”), it could absolutely be related to aim and direction like car alignment. Your car is missing its mark if you aim it in the middle of the road at the 12 o'clock position with the wheel and it keeps veering left.
