Waiting for the sheet to hit the fan..

Renault forums,how things turned ugly!

I have a manufactured 2011/bought in 2011 renault.
guarantee ends mid 2014,(unless I extend the mechanical part to 2015 or 2016)
I cant wait to experience probs and share...not!
Basic design is like 5yrs old now(meg3).
Considering its really a rebody of the megII (costs)its older than that

Unfortunately here were privy to any low mileage/recent year/known fault stories.
Mine could be next "coups last stand"!
I have checked back on recalls,and every make has them,merc porsche,audi,toyota,honda etc,not publicised much of course..
Continuous production upgrades year on year we dont hear much about ,but they are there if you look.

Meg III had a few on dec 2010/Jan 2011 cars,which is great for me.
This would be to eliminate servicing/marginal failures.
ie they arent goin to change basic mechanics just for the sake of it.
Its economics.
Im sure there have been minor upgrades since then too..but I dont want to know.
Im not talking about plastic restyle/freshen up.add leds,but under the skin.

So whats the meg 3 got left..2 years in its present format. then a total redo?..perhaps a total chassis/body redesign this time.

Call me chicken, but unless I get rid of mine before then Im gonna go for the approx 250 pa extended warranty,year by year till 2016.
I dont relish the idea of goin kissy kissy to rcs in Ireland.

Just as a btw.. my last renault check up.emblazoned across it was cam belt and ancillaries change 100,000 miles OR 4 years.. whatevers sooner.
I wouldnt wait that long on the belt anyway,but conxidering our recentposts of a few months out of 3 year guarantee,and less than 40k up..probably ok on renault goodwill.
4 years + tho n they might cut up nasty.

Re: Waiting for the sheet to hit the fan..

A penny-worth of prevention = a pound of cure.

Valid advice then & now.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
