2000 Renault Megane Coupe 1.4 16v petrol from Portugal
It is a great, sporty looking car with low maintenance and really low fuel consumption
At 180000, replacement injectors were needed.
At 200000, water pump
At 230000, rear central brake LEDs failed.
At 235000, the front seat started to open (not wear, but the string that attaches the leather panels broke) - easy fix. The seats are as new! No wear whatsoever!
Steering wheel and gear knob have completely worn out.
I've owned it since day one.
Great sporty looks
The best thing about it is the running costs. The on board computer shows fuel consumption (confirmed) of 6.1L/100km easily!
I can get down to 5.4L/100km (running calmly). Max it goes is up to 7.3L/100Km (city crazy driving).
The driving position is very high... not sporty at all (which is a shame).
Runs quite alright. Reaches 210km/h... (but quite slow starting and recovering) - not too sporty a motor.
Goes around the corners with no understeer, which is cool. Stiff chassis!
Lots of noises from the plastic interior, but besides the steering wheel and gear knob, everything is mint condition!!! (a 12 year car!!!)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
