Re: zoe

  1. No-one within renaultforums works directly for renault UK (some members work within dealerships, but none are in the Mod/Admin team).
  2. No-one was poking fun at having dyslexia, one of our former Mods had a similar issue. The fact you have overcome such a hurdle to become a doctor is something to be proud of.
  3. Renault UK have a 'List Price' or Manufacturer's Recommended Retail Price for each model - this allows the dealership a %age profit margin if selling at that price. There is no 'Price Control' which states that the price must be adhered to - like all things, it pays to shop around and look before leaping.
  4. At the end of the day, you have been 'out' 50. Now I accept that no-one likes feeling they have been mis-sold anything, but in the grand scheme of things, don't let such a small sum (that you will save in fuel costs), spoil what should otherwise be one of life's more pleasurable experiences - a new car.
By all means keep us updated with your ownership experience in running an EV.

As this thread has run it's course, it is now closed.

Thanks all for your thoughts & contributions.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
