I've got a 2.2 dci and I love it but not what it costs me to keep on the road
Fuel economy expect no better than 28-35 on mixed driving and perhaps 45-55 if you can keep a steady 70-80 in 6th gear. Mine goes to visit the inlaws in southern Belgium 3 or 4 times a year and the best we've got is around 56 - but that was driving at 70 kph for 15 km -difficult and boring. Typically we get 42-48 mpg.
Woes from me
key card open button stopped working (£75 + reprogramming)
front electric window mechanisms (not motors) stopped working- find some on
(£60-90), DON'T use Renault (£333) + labour (count 1 hr)
"limp home mode" on several occasions with copious black smoke out of the back.
Had all the speedo replaced as Renault removed the battery and defaulted it to km; kph, l, etc. No return to mph possible, but thankfully replaced free under warranty.
Stereo is great.
Rear visibility is poor, so get the Initiale with sensors as standard, or a Privilige with them fitted. The hatches have it as standard.
can anyone recommend an independant Renault specialist in Oxfordshire?
Good luck, choose carefully!
