Previous carRenault Clio

Summary:

Not a reliable car. Poor after sales customer service from Renault UK Head office

Faults:

Megane was bought from Swansea renault. It had done 12 miles. At 3000 miles the bottom arm came out of the socket and resulted in collapsed suspension. On closer inspection at the repair centre, the alloy wheel had a 2" crack, but the tyre itself was not damaged!!. My immediate thought therefore-was there a crack in the wheel when I bought this Car? My partner luckily was doing only 20-30 mph, and was therefore not injured. We contacted renault, but our comments fell on deaf ears. 2 letters have since been sent with no reply. Poor customer service. I would strongly suggest you think carefully before purchasing a Renault. I have now sold the car and own a very reliable Seat Leon.

General Comments:

Poor customer service. All queries fall on deaf ears.

Previous carAudi A3

Summary:

Nice sexy good solid french car

Faults:

Some quality problems of the interior.

Bad audio system. (distortion at maximum volume) and also doesn't work all the time.

Noisy suspension.

General Comments:

I love the car despite the fact that my previous car was an Audi A3.I didn't expect so much quality from a french car. I heard that french cars are very unreliable. This one is reliable and very well made.Probably I am used to the German cars,that is the reason why I accuse quality of the car. It is the safest car in the class, but I don't like the plastic front fenders. Anyway for the money paid is enough. It is the first french car I own and I am not disappointed at all!

I've just taken delivery of my new 2005 Megane Dynamique and the single thing that has blown me away above all else is the quality. It feels like a solid, well engineered bit of kit.

Even the dash plastics are decent quality apart from the heater controls which feel like they'll break after about 10 uses. We shall see however.

Remain unconvinced on the keyless ignition.

Previous carAlfa Romeo 145

Summary:

Money well spent

Faults:

Nothing, this car has been completely fault free.

General Comments:

Decently priced car, I really like the exterior design and the interior materials, way better than my old Alfa 145TS.

The 1.6 16v engine gives a good amount of power to move this rather heavy car around town, however a 2.0 16v engine option would be the best choice.

Luckily I got a good Renault garage that takes good care of my car, can't complain there.

I'm looking forward buying a Megane Sport Tourer next year.

Previous carVauxhall Corsa

Summary:

Great car, have never been so pleased with new car before

Faults:

Nothing so far has gone wrong with the car.

I have only found one minor fault in the paintwork, just below the offside front light. The paint appears to have 'run' very slightly leaving a very discreet line, I have now cleaned the car thoroughly four times and only noticed it the last time, so it's obviously not too concerning.

General Comments:

This is a very good car, with a lot of equipment for the price compared too many similar cars.

The seats have a very easy to use handle to pull the chair forward for access to the rear.

The cabin is very light and airy, aided mainly by the panoramic sunroof, the children enjoy sitting in the back seats gazing at the sky.

Everything on the dashboard is well lit and easy to use, and the steering wheel is very comfortable being fully adjustable.

The car is not as quick as I had anticipated, but I think it still needs running in, it's loosening up all the time, this is proved by the fact that the miles per gallon reading is increasing daily, with our routes changing little.

To summarize, this is a super car, handles very well, looks great (personal opinion) and provides a very smooth and quiet ride, my only gripe is that the steering provides little feedback.

I've never been so pleased with a new car, and the dealer made the process very enjoyable this time too.

Since owning this car, my grandparents have bought one on the basis of mine, and my parents are considering one also... does that not say enough?
