Megane II am I being to Hasty

Hello all,

I was given my Renault Megane '53 Reg in September as a birthday present. Since then I have had to have 2 coils replaced and now my car is in the garage due to it cutting out when stationery. It would tick over quite happily and then just die.

The garage have told me it's soemthing to do with the cam belt.

Also the amount of petrol I get through is awful.

I love the car, apart from how much it is costing me. Now I am considering selling. Am I being to hasty??

Is it just a run of bad luck or are these common issues?

Your view will be most appreciated.

Welcome to the forum Amy. The coils are a known issue, and they can affect fuel consumption dramatically. I'm not sure re the Cam belt theory but one of the more technical members may have more insight.
