1998 Renault Scenic RT 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Only one - the water pump broke away from something important resulting in a catastrophic loss of coolant. Unbeknown to me. So on my first day back at work after the New Year my engine overheated 20 miles into my early morning journey.
This is a known problem in cars of mine's batch. They say they checked the pump at the 36,000 mile sevice, and who am I to question it. It did fail at 40,000.
Renault have replaced the engine, at their cost, even though I am out of warranty by 4,000 miles.
I still love my Scenic, but if the engine seizes again I may revise that! All the stuff about getting lots of luggage in is true, and kids can keep comics and sweets hidden away for months in strange places.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
