Hello Terry,welcome to the forum.

I'm guessing that the Megane is a 'big ar$ed' version,and to be honest they seem very good.I would use the search facility on the forum and type in 'Megane 2' and see what comes up,but my experience of the the 1.4 Megane 2 is pretty positive.

Expect coil failures now and again (around 30 from a decent motor factor),but apart from that I'd not worry about too much.The secret is to not go back to a main dealer and to find a trusted independant garage/Renault specialist as the labour rates will be half of a main dealer.
Currently in Lagdti's garage:
2004 Saab 9-5 HOT Aero and a 2001 Audi A3 1.8 Turbo
