Re: Scenic III reliability?

Renault seem to have got their acts together, like any manufacturer they have faults , if you feel the car is right buy it ... i never buy a car on owners review as people with faults in their cars are quick to give you their negative opinion, whereas people with no problems rarely appear on sites like this

I suppose it was a bit daring. But before I got my scenic 2 I had a Megane 2 1.9 dci it had nearly 200k on it and I only sold it because we had a 3rd child on the way and needed more space. I absolutely loved that car. So I decided to give Renault another chance. Plus I got a good deal on my scenic 3.

Re: Scenic III reliability?

Maybe the questions phrased wrong.

It's possibly the past & present owners who suffer from reliability issues.

I only bought my scenic 1 because it was cheap and tested for the year. I'm into my cars. And had a newishToyota Auris diesel. However I woke up one morning to find it had been stolen by thieves who got in during the night. The insurance took months to pay up and I needed a car quickly. I have to say its nice to not have to worry about parking now cos its worth very little and is more reliable than people say and no more bank loan,,,?

Re: Scenic III reliability?

I have this Scenic II 1.6 56reg since 2010. so far it never failed me even once. It always start on one push of a button and always run smoothly when I need it. Driven across europe, no problem. Just not enough power but still manage to go over 100mph on the French motorway.
