Post Renault Scenic

Hi all
I am looking to buy a Renault Scenic Automatic,after seeing a 2002 1.9Dci Privalage manual in a garage to get a idea he told me never to get a Automatic as they are not good drive, they are jerky,like kangaroo and gear change is not good,also there is a lot of trouble with Dashboards after 2003 needing to be replaced and even if you get one that as been replaced the problem is still there and can still go wrong and need replacing again.
Can anyone tell me if this is true or is it the garage making it up to get a sale.

Many thanks

Re: Renault Scenic

reading threads on Renault automatics over the last year i would steer clear of them
as for the dash yes it does happen to some and if it does happen renault will pay part of the cost lots of threads on this
i have had a 1.6 mk1 that was heavy on fuel
the 1.4 and 2ltr mk1 phase 2 year 2000 and 2001 16v i have are both much better on mpg in fact the 2ltr is very close to the 1.4
at the end of the day no matter what you get at some point you will have to get repairs done
Currently in bugsb's garage:
MGF 1.8 1999/ honda hrv 2002/ x type jag se 2005
