1997 Renault Megane Coupe 1.6 fidji 1.6 from UK and Ireland
A top affordable coupe!
Problems getting first gear when approaching junctions.
Plastic knob to push seat forward snapped off!
Well its my first car and I love it!
I've found the car fairly quick, but you do need to take it over 3000 rpm to get the best from it.
It's a very nice car to drive, but can get a bit hairy through country lanes if you push it too hard and that's with Goodyear tyres on!
The rear seats aren't as bad as they look, well I had no complaints from my friend who is 5'11 and he was in the back for almost an hour!
Insurance is very good for a coupe even the 2.0l 16v isn't overly expensive!
All in all it's a good value car when you buy it at this age, but I advise if it does need a service or any work doing avoid Renault dealers if you can and get a private mechanic or do the work yourself with a trusty Haynes manual!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
