Re: koleos big mistake in purchasing

I only joined this forum 2 days ago and I'm already suffering from depression. The amount of problems being reported regarding Renault's ultra modern, efficient, economic diesel engines is unbelievable. How can a "market leader" allow such a monstrosity be fitted to an otherwise desirable vehicle. Every fault listed has appeared on my Koleos and like many others, has spent more time in the dealership's forecourt (waiting for highly trained technicians to finish scratching their heads). Just out of curiosity, when my DPF light first came on I looked in the driver manual for advice. Yes, it does tell you to drive the car at a certain speed for a certain distance/time. However, I can't see, ANYWHERE, in the book that this has to be done on a regular basis. I bought the car 2nd hand but from a Renault Franchisee . Now someone, somewhere, in a Renault dealership must have known the inherent problems with these beasts and advised me on this before selling it. Anyway, there might be some light at the end of the tunnel, just received a call from the "Branch Manager" asking me to call in for a chat. Wouldn't have anything to do with the nasty letter I'd sent to their head office would it? Keep you posted.
