2000 Renault Megane Coupe Sport Alize 2.0 16v from UK and Ireland
Very high specification for the amount paid
A volumetric fault on the alarm meant it kept sounding for no apparent reason.
A harsh noise at the end of each gear change appeared in July 2000 and still hasn't been rectified despite two sets of mountings and the gear box being replaced.
Central locking seems to have a mind of its own.
The performance of the car is very good.
The rear of the car is severely lacking in leg room and you have to bend yourself in half to be able to get in and out of the back - not ideal if you use the rear of the car on a regular basis!
Disappointing service from the dealers - they don't seem particularly willing to accept that there are problems with the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Been there & got the tee-shirt. I think Renault teach their employees "the gallic shrug" - they are completely uninterested in customer service. My Megane Coupe should have come with the warning: "do not buy this car if you intend to drive it". Never mind, I get my VW Passat on Saturday.
