Engine misfires and occasional loss of power after two years, 20,000km. Problem solved after service/plugs changed.
Engine misfires and occasional loss of power again every now and then. Every time I decide to visit agent car works in perfect order.
30,000 rear shock absorber goes hard and stuck. Changed while car underparts are still clean with low careful usage. (using my older Toyota for the day to day road running)
Misfiring stops for a year after I fitted the coils with O rings which exactly fit into upper groves of the coil, making the part water proof... Starts again bue works normal after cleaning down under near the sparking plug. Suspect design problem.
Very comfy ride and solid looks. I own the 2000 model metallic green. Beautiful car, real interior quality and many extras such as adjustable steering and seat height, handy radio controls at the steering. Problems after approx two years and low mileage...
There is a design problem in the engine which retains water/condensation near the coils killing the strength of the spark. I have Nippon Denso coils (my other car is a Toyota and I don't think these parts fail), which I do not suspect as the core problem of occasional sometimes continuous misfiring. I removed the coils myself (simple screw driver set tool) and found out that regularly the plugs where being exposed to moisture mysteriously accumulating in the bore where the coil fits. The design of the bore itself creates condensation or acts as a receptacle to water droplets.
Renault should see into this problem as it makes your car feel like an old tech car.
