I accept that there are running costs with any car. This one has a full service history and i bought it as an ex motorbility (we've had excellent cars like this before). i drive around 6000 miles a year and maybe we've had a run of bad luck. Besides the normal runnning costs we've had a TDC switch (90), some sort of ignition chip(150), a starter motor(300), fan belt (60), boot handle (60) and this morning I've just had a third ignition coil at a cost of 98.00. In six months to me this seems excessive. This is our first renault after 3 ford escorts and I've never spent so much money on a car in such a short space of time. Is it bad luck? can it only get better?
