Brilliant, but very unreliable
The engine management light comes on & there is a loss of power, this fault can occur at any time, not just on start-up. At the same time the engine sounds off-key & runs lumpy. If the engine is switched off & then re-started the engine can run OK. The loss of power is dangerous particularly if entering a round-about or trying to exit a junction. As at 020505, this vehicle has been returned to the main dealer for rectification on numerous occasions, it has had two sets of injector coils, a new set of plugs & a new throttle box. It is still faulting out. I have contacted Renault customer Services & basically they cannot solve this problem any better than the local dealer. I cannot believe that a company like Renault can walk away from this problem. Has any other Renault driver experienced this problem?
This fault is dangerous.
Renaults attitude is unbelievable.
The car design is brilliant.
I would have another Megane if this problem could be cured.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
