1998 Renault Megane RT Sport 1.9tdi from UK and Ireland
Good car, but beware of electronic gremlins
New Clutch at 120000 miles, 6 hour job requiring full engine removal, not cheap!
Brake discs were replaced 121000 miles.
ECU fault remains.
Fuel economy is excellent, especially on the open road. I average around 50 mpg.
Biggest problem with this reasonable car is the useless ECU. If you use a moblie phone in or near this car the ECU light comes on and the engine jams at 2250 rpm. Also the throttle can become irratic leading to the throttle jamming again and the ECU light coming on. As yet I've not found a mechanic who'll look into it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
