Mines cost approx 1,000


I bought an 04 plate renault megane saloon and it is giving me nothing but a headache, I just feel like taking it to my renault dealer and leving it there.

firstly my ignition coils went after having the car about 4 months. Then my emissions light came on again so I went to renault and the nice man said it could be my coils is the car misfiring to which I said no as the cols had all been changed.
He then said its probably the camshaft sensor so I took it in on the Monday to be looked at I then got a call from the dealer saying I needed a de-phaser kit my car has only done 42,000 miles. I asked how much the job would cost and was told 500 approx but it couldn,t be done until Tuesday as they had to order the parts. I got a call to say my carwas ready and was told mt bill would be 638 pounds as the man I spoke to the previous day had not included the diagnostics fee etc etc.

A week later the same light came on so I went back to the same dealer who said they would look at my car straight away. They cam back to say this time it was the sensor now I started to wonder if this was the initial problem and I paid for a new cam belt pulley etc for nothing.

Now to top it all off I've been on holiday this week and I took my son out for the day along with my sister and neice and my passenger electric window would not go back up. Ha ve I just got a faulty car as all my renaults I've had before have not given me this type of trouble and cost.

I still have my Y plate 1.4 scenic which I have always been pleased with in terms of cost of repairs and the faults it has had most have been things you'd expect like tyres the coils brakes etc.

Is there anything I can do or is it just keep paying the bills. Does anyone knoe if I can speak to Renault to see if it is a faulty car?

If I can get through the next 6 months and not pay a penny like so far this year it'll make up for the 2 grand I spend last year
