Wink Struggles to reach 80mph


I've got a 2002 Renault Scenic 1.9 DCI, which I've had for about 3 weeks. I decided to take it down the motorway to test it out for speed and handling. I find that it takes time to get up to 70 mph and struggles from 70 - 80 mpg. Is this a common problem or should I be reaching these speeds with no problem? As the cars under a years warranty, any help will be appreciated.

I'd get it looked at, the wife has one and its not a racecar but it doesn't struggle to 80 or even 100, actually feels quite lively at those speeds.

best of luck

Hello & Welcome to the Forums Gazza.

As the Car is still under warranty I would take it back to the dealer without delay.
