Good for you MADNOEL I have had a number of Renaults Espace's Laguna's Now Scenic 11. Both my daughters have Renaults, Scenic 1 and Clio. By and Large lovely cars, lrgely reliable, my only gripe is the price of the spares, but most marques are expensive these days.
If they were that bad there would not be so many sold.

You are right Micdock - it just ain't Renaults that are expensive to fix nowadays and to some extent it can be a matter of luck. I bought my 2001 Laguna II 1.9 Dci six months ago for 1800 had to fit 2 new tyres which I knew was required when I bought it. Took it for its MOT yesterday and passed with flying colours - I'm well chuffed. On the other hand my neighbour who owns a 2003 Mondeo has just had to pay the best part of 2000 for a new ECU .

I am amazed at the responses this therad has generated. Does the guy not have the right to express his opinion without having his head bitten off. He bought a bad car and decided to let off steam. What is wrong with that?

Quite right does one the power of good to have a moan -- I know I'm a councillor and the number of moaners I listen to in the course of a week would tend to make me believe that my town had been the victim of a nuclear attack. Back to the point my Lag II was bought trade and came with a host of faults some of which I got done on warranty, but it is still basically a good motor. As with all cars the nut behind the wheel is a key component that manufacturers cannot engineer to perfection. Perhaps its the way people look after their motors (or don't) that causes most of the problems. Regular service and TLC will always pay off. The cost of parts will always be a bugbear since most dealers will want to make large profits to justify stocking the parts. What the whole industry could do with is standarisation of common parts so that the economies of scale in production would bring down costs there is too great a variety of change ( sometimes for the sake of it ) that makes stocking spares a nightmare, Look at the number of different brake discs, pads, tyre sizes, filters, bulbs, plugs, batteries, alterntors belts, wiper blades etc. etc that sit on shelves. But the designers would argue that all subtle changes are done in the name of progress and modernity, as well as making things with built in obsolecence.
Phew glad I got that lot of my chest . I'll now sit back and wait for the fall out

It was the fact he altered and edited his original posts to change the whole context of the thread that annoyed/wound up some people. Not the fact he wanted to slag of his car.
Had you seen his original unedited posts you may have had a slightly different opinion of his posts.
