Good family car, but parts are expensive
Tail gate lights failed, common problem, same problem with first savanna. repaired myself.
Water pump, second one for this car £150:00. even at cheap mate workshop.
Alternator went spares are rare £140:00 for new one not including fitting.
Fuel tank straps, dealer only now £30;00 each. Easy to fit if tank not full.
Locks sticky same on old one living with it.
Fuel sender unit, deal price £95:00 plus VAT spare £20:00 or from French parts dealer (independent) £45:00 for new one.
Seals, same as old one £120:00.
The parts are expensive and normally only available from the dealer, There is even a nut and bolt that is only available from dealer and it cost £4:75 plus vat.
It's a good car, built for comfort and driving. Loads of space and you can seat the pain in the neck kids right at the back. IT really sad that Renault charge an arm and leg for parts. Even in the recent snow and freeze weather and never had a service it started after it's normal three attempts, sad part it's getting to expensive to keep on the road now over £200:00 a month in repair costs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
