1999 Renault Megane Coupe Alize 1.4 16v from UK and Ireland
A great car with good performance and build quality
Sometimes first and second gear do not like to engage.
After 5,000 miles the brake pedal juddered when braking. Took the car to the Renault dealership. They said that due to very hard braking the discs have gone blue and would need replacing (Cost - 300ukp). Not happy with this of course so it took to Kwik Fit who confirmed the brakes were in A1 condition and the pads were only half worn. Didn't mention anything to the dealership until after it had come out of its first service @ 12,000 miles. Oh, and guess what, they didn't mention one thing about the brakes and confirmed the car is fine. Obviously mentioned about this past incident and the girl went very silent and kind of apologised under her breath. Just always make sure you get a second opinion on any expensive work required!!
A fantastic looking car and good fun to drive.
I would definitely advise anyone to buy one, but of course ship it in from abroad for about 30% discount. It'll be worth the wait!
Not the most ideal for tall people, but I'm six foot and fit OK, but any taller and you may find it a problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
