A luxury cruiser for small hatchback cash
Remote central locking didn't lock front passenger door when new.
Slight buzzing from stereo.
Dealer quickly sorted out.
I thought long and hard about getting this car. Especially as I had my heart set on a Golf - but really glad I did.
Not only do you get much more room and electric toys to play with, but the auto box is a lot smoother and gives you the option of semi auto - which is fun on bends.
The spec is much much better than on the Golf I was looking at - and the design is well thought through - with more places to put things.
Unlike VW dealers, Renault main dealers are happy to talk discount. There are also some really good deals around at the car supermarkets - although some are Irish spec. Do your own jokes!
My advice: contact a UK car broker like Carfile (see back of What car) and get them to quote you a price. Then either order through them or play that off your local dealer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
