Ive driven the four door coup (we got one as a company car) and it seems like it is more reluctant to turn in on a corner if you start pushing hard. That is one thing I am pleased with on my coupé that even on budget tyres the car has masses of grip. You really do have to push the limits of the car to start getting understeer.

One thing I do hate is the fact of the traction control coming in after 24mph. Thats one thing I wish Renault sorted out, if i pushed the off button it means i want it off lol

But totally agree with what Paul said, (and probably wiil be) that you will be using the car a hell of a lot more than any said passengers and its not like the passenger seat isnt easy to get into anyway

Please, if you fix your vehicle's problem, leave a message on the thread you started and tell the whole 'world ' so that we can learn to. Many Thanks
