After looking at some of the problems people have had with thier cars on this site, suddenly mines not seeing too bad

Ive ordered a haynes manual though and Im going to tentativly start trying my own repiars, or at least basic maintenance ( oil brakes etc)

Also looking at the prices some people have mentioned, id never use a renault dealership to carry out any work unless it was warrenty or something, i cant beleive the prices they seem to charge!

To be fair its not just renault, Mercedes and BMW will tear your @sshole out

And the uber reliable Japs have uber expensive parts. All told the overall difference between manufacturers is measured in single %. Overall though you're right much cheaper to do any work yourself you can (and good therapy )
