Aesthetically pleasing, but ultimately disappointing
Within 2 months the hydraulics went on the hood meaning it caused an almighty screech when you put the hood down.
The passenger seat rattled and the driver's side window squeaked very noisily when it was used.
The Renault dealer service is possibly the worst I have ever come across, it is quite frankly appalling.
When they took my car in to look at the hood they said it would take a day or two. They never once called me when they promised and I was constantly chasing them for updates. It took them 3 weeks to sort out the problem without so much as an apology for taking that long. Like I said, they never phoned me once in that time, I even had to phone them to check that the car was ready to pick up.
Apart from that the car looks stunning, it is far better looking than the competition with the hood up and down. It has a good engine which is quick and frugal and although the coachwork is excellent (it is done by Karmann I think though), the interior build quality is plasticy and not particularly good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
