1997 Renault Scenic RXE 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand
Solve the gearbox issue and remote control key, and it would have been a great car
Car occasionally goes on limp mode. Mechanic at Renault says due to low transmission oil level, after topping up, still happened, but less frequent.
If you don't go back to agent, you could save heaps on repairs and maintenance bill.
Remote control key suddenly didn't work, so can't deactivate the immobiliser and the car has to be towed. Replacement key took about 2 weeks to arrive and cost NZD400+ to replace, and the old key can't be programmed. Disappointed.
Aircon compressor leaks, maybe part of wear and tear.
Other than the above, satisfied with the rest.
Fuel consumption for city driving is pretty average, 10km to a litre, but on the highway (including some steep uphill), a surprising almost 14km to a litre.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
