Reliable, comfortable, all round excellent value
Brake pads needed replacing (wear and tear)
Slight leak from roof aerial
Occasional juddering (inexplicable really as it doesn't happen often)
Well I have had this car since Oct 2006, and in that time the car has cost very little.
It failed its last MOT in August on a number plate light. It's 10 years old and it is still going strong.
I do a fair bit of mileage in the car - roughly around 50 miles a day. I love it. It is a great car to drive, comfortable, has everything I want - electric windows, CD player, heaters that work... etc.. The only slight issue is the fact that it is a little underpowered for a medium sized car, but that doesn't matter really - unless you are constantly doing uphill driving etc where you have to change down - it could get irritating.
It has been the best car I have owned, not that I have owned many - one being a brand new Citroen C2, which had been in the garage over a dozen times.
I would definitely recommend a Renault - I had a Clio before this and that was great too; really responsive and fun to drive. The Megane has nearly 90000 miles on now and it never ceases to amaze me how it just plods along, not missing a beat, even on the coldest of mornings.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
