I think Renault have had some bad press and there's been some scare-mongering, the internet doesn't help. 10 years ago we wouldn't be privvy to all these horror stories, so it's maybe not a fair picture - the truth is that people love to complain far more than they sing the praises of something, particularly on boards like this - most people end up on one because they have a problem, not because they want to tell the world what a great car they have (cos the minute they do, the engine falls out!)

Warranty claims is a big clue, and the figures are poor (in my opinion) but no worse than Ford really, give or take a couple.

Mazda only have 3 or 4 claims in every hundred!

What we need is a Japanese Laguna.
