Wink Why do we all buy a renault?

I have read through quite a few posts and wanted to ask you all......... Why do all of you buy renaults?

Me personally the 5 star ncap thingy attracted me to them to begin with, followed by the 'different' shape of the cars and then gadgets 'v' value for money.

The scenic was brought cos of the roomy feel and space.
my current car being the coupe cabriolet....cos I am a tart lol

Anyone else care to expand on this? not me being a tart of course...........

I bought a Megane II because:

1: I got it at Trade price being a Renault Dealer Employee
2: Its still under warranty and I get paid for repairing it when it goes wrong
3: Its economical to run
4: I like its Looks

Will I buy another one? Yep when the warranty runs out..

Safety,good looks (SportTourer is better than hatch),loads of toys and good performance from engine. Also excellent deal from local Non-Renault garage.
Also had 2 old shape Meganes before,both completley trouble free. Also lucky enough to have a GOOD Renault dealer

Had a Citroen PIcasso before the Laguna, and it wasn't much better than you Scenic by the sounds of it, also didn't want a Ford Mundaneo,Rep-tra (Vectra) and don't like looks of Jap cars and not prepared to pay overinflated prices for German cars.

ALL cars go wrong at some point, it is the way these problems are sorted that is important, after reading other forums I do not believe Renault are any different to anybody else, even Mercedes have got a bad reputation for customer service.

Good Question!
For me it was price (Still the most I've ever spent on a car BTW-£2850, nor much to some but a lot to me). I am now having to be a responsible dad, so a niceroomy car was needed, initially wanted a Picasso, my dad has one, nice specs at a low price(from new). However Scenicsare older and within our budget.
Not really anything similar to buy for the price, so Scenic it was, I decided to go for one with air-con because
a) I just wanted to not be too hot going round west midlands safiari park with the family and..
b) I'd read that with all the glass it's needed.

Other than that I didn't mind if it was auto or manual or diesel or petrol.

Got a 1.6 8v petrol, and am very very happy with it. Drives nice, doesn't make me feel like speeding (good as iv'e just gone down from 9 to 6 points, all gained whilst not driving recklessly, but that should be another thread ) .
Great space for getting the kids in and out of, lots of space, i can't imagine having to go back to a smaller car.
My old car (Which we still have) was a Rover 416i and has also been great, I still prefer it over cars like a Ford Focus (No honestly!) it's been reliable and still going strong at 110k. (Shame Rover didn't look into the MPV market, it could have been a saviour!)

The only things I need to sort out now are a CD player, a small dent (50p sixe) in the drivers door that needs pulling out somehow and getting the milometer to illumine properly. Only one of those is a fault with the car, not bad (As William Shatner would say).

So so far so good (look out for my rant tomorrow about how it has just let me down!)

Great question, for me it was:

Press statements and partnership with Nissan suggesting that there was going to be a serious focus on quality and reliability in the new Laguna.
Space and practicallity. This is our main car so has to be a jack of all trades.
Performance - at this price there's little in the sector that can touch it.
Looks - still one of the best looking small estates on the market.
Toys, toys, toys.
