I voted 'Maybe' on the grounds that No I would never buy another normal Renault ever again unless their reliability and ease of maintenance and cost of parts improves.

Yes however if it is another Safrane - That is the only Renault I will consider again in the future.

I'd never touch any lag tbh - the very first or the very latest. All you see all over these forums is lag lag lag.

Again as you've said, I'd certainly never touch a Renault with a Turbo .

I voted maybe ... and if I was looking at a second car, I wouldnt discount some of the Renault range ... but my current Espace has becoming such a pain in the ar$e its going to be my last ... a pity as its my third ... the concept is brilliant and the execution of the "idea" is also brilliant, its just the build quality and the quality of the dealers and the attitude of RCS is just so deadful that when its time is up I've got better things to worry about than whats going to work or not today

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?

Based on life with my Clio so far, I would. Only three tiny problems - the common things - airbag light,hazard switch and temp sensor (yet to be fixed, cant be bothered at the mo).

Maybe it won't be a DCi, but a megane is a possibility...

Hypothetical though - I plan on keeping my Clio until I'm at least 20 - with Uni coming up I'm gonna have to curb my finances

Based on just 5 months' experience of owning a low mileage, fsh Kangoo 1.5 dCi, and after reading seemingly endless threads about Renault faults, I've decided to play safe and steer clear of them in future, so I voted No.

The trouble, is, they make such interesting and exciting cars and my heart often overrules my head .....

Hey ho.
