1996 Renault Megane Coupe 1.6 from France
Good value for money
This car was imported from Malta.
The lights on the dashboard frequently are cut off.
The ref-counter does not work.
Everytime the agent opens the dashboard area... scratches all over.
The most frustrating fault... the A/C does not work. After just 3 years I have been informed that the evaporator needs changing. This is a major part in the A/C and I do not expect that just after 3 years, there is a leakage in the evaporator. To change it, I need to pay approximately FF3000... ridiculous.
Is it possible to contact somebody at Renault, as I would like to receive further relevant information about the A/C problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The front springs are weak, and the water pump goes a lot (needs replacing).
Water temperature sender blows showing overheating and the Renault dealer in Swindon, Wiltshire have no idea what is happening.
But the most bad thing is the rear spoiler, the paint bubbled up because of the water in it before spaying. I know this as an owner of a Coupe 2.0 16v.
