1999 Renault Megane 2.0 16v from UK and Ireland
Good value, well equipped and satisfyingly quick
The rear disk brakes can be heard at low speeds.
The sun roof leaks slightly after heavy rain.
I have had no mechanical problems as yet. The CD changer doesn't work, but I have yet to have it inspected.
Passengers complain about the high seat position.
With 150BHP it is a good match for most hot hatches. 0-60 in 8.5 seconds and a top speed of over 130mph, the performance is class leading yet it is practical, comfortable and good value. The car has air conditioning, electric sun roof and windows and a CD multi-changer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
