Got every bit of the cars history, the owner before me was not 100% problem free, he had the
go on him and some electrical faults, all carried out my independent Renault specialists, and likewise with all the services (past and present). there are no recurring faults as far as i know except from my issue with the diesel injectors which i returned twice to Lookers Renault. (charged on both occasions, but has the £80 diagnostics fee refunded the 2nd time.)
The car will be leaving me on the 20th of Jan, all the paper work is done etc. Will this prove an issue if i contact Renault CSD?
I really don't know how this will pan out if you no longer have the car. But it might help if you obtained an independent engineers report (your approved Renault independent might be sufficient.. I don't know).
Get in touch with asap before you part company with the car and get his views. You will need to emphasise that this car has cost you 10.5 grand in just 13 months of ownership and ask does he think it is fair that you should lose all this money because things keep going wrong with a 4-yr-old car that you paid good money for.
I hesitate when you say that it has always been serviced by independents because they are difficult to pin down. e.g. if you jack up the front of the car (like they do during an MOT test) and swing the wheels from one extreme to the other a bit sharpish, you can damage the power steering, so who is going to determine if this has ever happened?
Despite everything, I still think it is worth a try. At least you'll know what their philosophy is.
Cheers for now.
