General Comments:

The car is comfortable, seats are comfortable for all.

Car is excellent on the motorway, easily cruising at around 90+ mph.

No A/C so the cabin can be very hot in summer.

Car almost never gets serviced and has never been in a Renault dealership.

This car is built like a van, even the wheel bearing are about the same size as used on a van.

Summary:

All in all a good solid family car

Faults:

I have a fault with my fuel gauge. It flickers between empty and quarter full even after I have fulled it up.

The heater won't give out warm air.

Any assistance with these faults would be greatly appreciated.

General Comments:

Apart from these minor faults the car is floor-less. It comfortable and easily accommodates my wife and two children. Performance is not its strong point, but once up to speed will quite happily let you acquire 3 points and a fine from the local constabulary!!

All in all a good solid family car.

Heater matrix is common to clog up on the inside and will need replaced.

I own a Renault and had the fuel gauge problem. Remove the unit from the fuel tank in the boot and simply replace the plastic float on the end of the wire arm. What happens the float becomes punctured and will not float thus giving an untrue reading. You will get a secondhand float at any scrapyard for a few bob. It does not necessary have to be a Renault float. A garage quoted me £150 for replacing the complete unit which is not necessary. You only require the small plastic float.

Summary:

Loved it, miss it

Faults:

Replaced catalyst and down pipe when I bought car.

Anti-roll drop link bars at 150,000.

The rear passenger door leaked abit once in very heavy rain.

General Comments:

Loved this car, I found it very easy to work on. It had great fuel economy and insurance wise was a great buy for a second car.

Also having 2 kids under 3 it easily accommodates a double buggy, a 12" sub 2 amps and a mountain of shopping.

This is a lovely car to drive although suspension could do with stiffening and there's too much body roll, but it has so torque to play with and if you drive it right you'll out do most cars from the lights ;) well only for around 200yards :)

Stylish and comfortable

Sunroof won't slide anymore.

And both back boxes of the exhaust needed replacing.

General Comments:

Starts first time every time.

Good looking car (inside and out).

Plenty of space.

Very comfortable on long distance journeys.

Good spec: electric windows, electric sunroof, remote central locking, immobiliser, electric heated mirrors power steering and airbag.

Could do with a bit more power though.

Summary:

Overall this is a reliable, practical and well designed car

Faults:

Heater matrix blocked at 102000 miles.

HT leads required replacing.

General Comments:

This is my first Renault I have owned and it has been a great car for me.

The 1.8 engine, even at its current mileage is smooth, quiet and responsive.

The clutch and gear box could be a bit smoother and except for the HT leads and the heater matrix blocking it has been a reliable car.

The sound system could do with improvement, but fitting a new stereo and speakers where very easy.

The interior and exterior has been designed well and is pleasing to the eye, there are little storage places strategically placed around the car which are very handy especially the glasses holder above the drivers door. The driving position is comfortable and serene, long distance journeys in this car are a joy.

The Renault standard security features are adequate and give you peace of mind.
