1995 Renault Trafic T1100 2.2 petrol from UK and Ireland
Good cheap work horse
Rear exhaust box fell off at 70000 miles, and had to be welded back on. This is caused by the system being too heavy for the rubber supports.
Slight miss fire at about 72000 miles. Replaced distributer cap and plugs, this cured the problem.
These vans, especially in petrol form, are usually very cheap, don't let this put you off purchasing one. You will find that they are tolerably reliable, cheap to run (30mpg) and quite easy to work on. Some parts for the 2.2 models are not available from pattern manufacturers, you therefor have to go to a main dealer and pay main dealer prices. This is particularly true in the case of exhausts, so make sure this is in good condition. Service items can be bought cheaply though. One last thing you should be aware of is that due to the design of the floor, the pedals are very close together, making things quite interesting until you get used to it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
