Most of the things that you have spent out on are unfortunately common problems on newer Scenics. TDC sensors give problems on all modern Renaults, ignition coils are infamous on all modern 16 valve Renault engines,and the boot lock problem is common to all Scenics.A starter motor or auxillary belt can fail on any car,but all in all you have been extremely unlucky.

There is nothing to say that if you'd bought any other European make of car that the story would have been any different either.If you want reliability,buy Japanese!.

Good luck for the next 6 months,I hope you begin to enjoy your Renault!

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