I blame the glass roof - which must weight a bit - the responsive engine - really shifts thro the gears. I drive it like it is meant to be. No problems with it in the few months I have had it' - mind you it only has 12k on the clock and enjoying it very much so. Only negative is the heater could be better. Also had a Meg 2 1.5 DCI for 2 years and a bit - nothing went wrong with it. You only hear of bad reports on the web rarely good ones.
This is true only bad ones reported,my dad has just sold his Megane 2 1.9 dci 2005.103000 miles,nothing went wrong no window faults, turbo or egr issues.Maybe he just got a good one!
