It was the most beautiful vehicle I ever owned.
It was sexy, it was fast, and it was my ideal car.
It never gave me a single problem. I had it regularly serviced by Renault. In fact Renault recommended servicing every 18000 miles because of the then new DCI engine design, however I ignored this and made sure the oil was changed every 9000 miles with a full service at 18000 miles.
I left UK to emmigrate to Canada, and sold the car to a close friend who wanted it badly after seeing it, and since he has told he's had no problems with it. To be honest, any bad review may be for the petrol models, but I have always driven diesel and found it to be reliable.
The interior is elegant; the sporty half leather bucket seats are so comfortable, and the 6 speed gearbox is good for economy as well as performance.
I bought a demo model with 7k on it, and some extra options; the comfort pack and climate control, which was nifty.
If someone has had a bad experience with this vehicle, it's most likely they didn't keep up with servicing, or just got a bad build, which is just unlucky.
