Re: renaults better build quality than ford? :)

Maybe, I had an Escort from new (early 1990's) which was frequently back at the dealers to have a water leak into the boot space rectified.
Despite the efforts of the dealership the adjusted the tailgate to such extent the shut profile was an eighth of an inch lower than the rear wings, they applied a circle of sealant around the rear washer nozzle (it was leaking), that failed so sealant was put around the through-air vents in the wing sides, that failed also.
I found the leak after removing the rear interior, the water was coming into the car between the floor pan and wing where the car had never been welded/sealed on the production line. A few weeks later that car was traded for another marque.
So, maybe!
