2002 Renault Scenic 1.6 LPG from Belgium
Reliable and suitable for short distances
Spark plug (known issue, easy to replace).
And now the timing belt.
I drove it for 60.000 km and it never let me down once. Except for the time when the spark plug blew and it started to make a lot of noise and shake. Luckily I could still drive and my dealer knew the issue (it cost me 60 euro). While other dealers along the road told me prices up to 1500 euro when seeing the car!
Now the timing belt has a problem, which makes me doubt if I will still spend the money, because I would prefer a car that is more relaxed to drive on long distances, like my previous 2002 Volkswagen Passat (which unfortunately has a very poor automatic gear box, as do the Volkswagen Golfs of that period).
Otherwise, the car is very practical, easy to remove the seats, you can transport so many things. And many (also hidden) storage compartments!
Back support of the seats isn't good for me, even with the built in extra support.
Fuel: 9-10 liters LPG per 100km, on petrol +-7,5 liters.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
