I know what you mean, I was/am in the same boat. I bought a Mk1 Scenic 8 years ago, replaced it last year....with a Mk2 Scenic !

Seemingly lots for your money, but quantity not quality is the Renault motto.

Re: Renault reliability

re box failure, you should have warranty on the car with the garage you bought it from.

you have consumer rights, this is a major fault, check with trading standards.

the garage should be liable for a gearbox failure, as its not a sudden fault but one that should have been picked up on when they bought the car.

best option if you end up lumped with all the repair costs, get it swapped for a 5speed(pk5)+gear linkage, then diy a repair on the old pk6 box if you can. threads on diy box repars are on here.
Currently in mord's garage:
