2004 Renault Megane Dynamique 1.5 dCi from UK and Ireland
Really nice car let down by the odd electrical gremlin
Sunroof refused to open or close - twice. Now fixed.
Keyless entry system
Electric window (rear). It dropped like a stone and wouldn't go up again.
One-touch electric window (front). Seems to have fixed itself.
Dreadful brake squeal. Unresolved.
Electric door mirror (intermittent fault). MAde a strange buzzing sound.
Digital dashboard window/panel (intermittent fault)
Auto wipers (intermittent fault).
Rear wiper (intermittent fault). Seems to have fixed itself.
Despite having had some problems I really like this car. It has many good qualities and it has never broken down. And the dealer has been extremely competent in fixing things. I have not reported all the faults because they don't always occur and I shall be buying another Megane soon.
The turbo diesel engine is an amazing piece of engineering. It's fast, economical and very refined.
It is extremely comfortable, the seats are very supportive on long journeys and the fabric is wearing well.
This car has masses of character, it is a very pleasant car to drive and I have no regrets buying it.
Overall I am a satisfied owner. However Renault need to spend a bit more effort ensuring all the electrics are robust. In my opinion they still have some work to do in this area. It will be interesting to see how 2006 Megane compares.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Renault Megane Dynamique purchased new July 2003
Problem experienced: difficulty in starting - engine turns over, but does not fire; immediately stalls; if revs maintained starts off running roughly. Intermittent fault - six attempts this year to remedy fault, but fault occurs again
-has occurred again 27/8. No other problems, but this fault makes the vehicle unreliable. Renault UK advised.
