2000 Renault Scenic RXE 2.0 16v from UK and Ireland
A superb small family car
Rear brakes stick when reversing (dealer unable to cure).
Rear washer motor failed at 8000 miles.
Opening rear window failed after 1 week.
The car is very quick - but high revs are required to make the most of the engine.
Handling not as good as the Zafira.
Not very economical (average 29mpg).
Love the car! It has a good level of equipment, is comfortable and very airy inside. We are considering another now in the new Privilege + trim, but with automatic transmission.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Don't buy the automatic!!
Renault just don't seem to know how to make good autos and I've heard of countless problems on auto Scenics.

The Auto 1.6 RXE 2000 average 36MPG. Only defect 2 Ignition coils failed at 26K replaced under warranty, and another 1 at 42K at a cost from AA at £52, The AA does carry them as a service spare in their vans. We like it as a family car.
