2005 Renault Master MM33 2.5 dCi 100 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Safe van, packed with features, just not rugged enough
The van came with the steering components loose, and the van wandered all over the road until I took it in for inspection.
Drivers window winder failed.
Passenger window winder failed.
Have had three replacement parking sensors.
Radio antenna broke off.
Sliding door electric contacts corrode when it rains.
Rear doors seized up/very stiff to open.
Have to slam driver's door to make it shut.
Have to slam sliding door to make it shut.
Have had new clutch master cylinder already.
Clutch has juddered since new.
Handbrake failure is most recent fault.
IMHO, the faults I have had show very poor build quality.
However, the van always returns between 30 - 32mpg.
It has never failed to start, and is reliable this way.
The cruise control is the best thing on this van, and makes you less tired.
The aircon is very good too, and has not failed yet.
Rear tyres hardly wear down, but front ones do much quicker.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
