2004 Renault Megane 2 Bicorp Comfort Expression 1.6 16V from Romania
A reliable, solid well equipped and cheap modern car with a sexy booty!
Since I have had the car, nothing went wrong, or if the "Mute" button behind the steering wheel that doesn't work counts, then that went wrong. Besides that, no problems thankfully.
The only thing I replaced since I got the car, are the brakes, and I needed to buy 4 new tires because the ones which were on the car were quite old.
It was a car which I was craving for, for a long time. I read many comments, and most of them were negative towards the car, stating that it's not reliable, etc. So I bought one, it was quite cheap for a 2004 car. The car is very well equipped, with light and rain sensors (which work), to A/C, heated seats, all 4 windows are automatic, 6 airbags, and with its 1.6 16V engine, you would be surprised how good it pulls, especially compared to my previous 1.4 MPI Logan. The car may not look that "sporty" but if you tend to drive it like that, it responds surprisingly well. It's a very solid and stable car, and this engine fits it perfectly, and works very well with its 5-speed gearbox.
It has a lot of storage space, a spacious boot (for its size) and is very comfortable. Overall I'm very pleased with the car, it goes perfectly fine, all of its gadgets work fine (except the "Mute" button) and the hatchback model still looks very fresh. I would buy another Renault, maybe a Megane 3 or Laguna 3, only time will tell.
I would recommend this car to anyone, who wants to buy a modern well equipped solid car, for a small price, you won't regret it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
