Question Renault Build Quality

Just wondered what people think of Renault's build quality.

Personally not too impressed, my Clio III now has 58,000 on it and has quite a few rattles, its still under warranty so I am hoping to take it back to the dealer before it runs out to get them fixed.

How are everyone else's doing?

Renaults build quality has improved an awful lot over the years,but many manufacturers have improved theirs beyond Renaults.

Squeaks and rattles pretty much come as standard on all French cars to be honest,although obviously they shouldn't be there at all.

I think it's amazing that modern cars don't give more problems with interior noises the amount of stuff thats crammed into them.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

my lag has done 121000 and I cant say it rattles at all, well apart from a mysterious one when cold.

Hi well to be honest my 2.0 16v Espace is very good for 46k 6 years old past October this year

If you take all the seats out as well as the parcel shelf then there is no rattles i just turn the radio up it works a treat
