Safe car, reasonable price, small flaws


At 8000 km the engine started to make a horrible noise, like friction between two pieces of metal.

Sometimes at startup the engine is weak and the rpm's are variable, ending with a dead engine.

The clutch pedal had a weird noise, like if it's out of lubrication since day 1.

General Comments:

The main reason I bought this car is because of its safety features, the ABS brakes, the six air bags, the special seat belts, etc...

I like it's interior so isolated from the outside and comfortable too...

The card key is amazing...

I also like the roomy interiors and all its compartments including its big trunk.

It's nice to drive it fast, and manages well the curves...

It has a nice acceleration...

I miss an arm rest in the middle...

Love the design... its looks.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

We own a Renault hatch on petrol,1,6V, 5 doors and it is just great. We are a family of 3 (2 parents and a 15 son) and bought it for its look- we just love, love the back. It"s really strinking!Plenty of room inside, great smooth suspensions, very steady on curves and reliable. Almost no engine noise- if you r not careful, you will not know the engine is on.

We love it and wouldn't change it for anything else. It has character and poise and a strong personality. Since it' all new, made in may 2007 we had no problem so far and everything it's working on normally.

As a woman, I feel great when driving it. The boot is spacious enough (at least for what we need) and I never have a problem in finding it in the hypermarket park- it strikes out, no matter how many cars are around.

If I ever decide to change it I will g for a Renault New Laguna Sport Tourer, but I will never leave Renault.
