Scenic reliability?


So, my little family is looking for an MPV for 1500....and of course Scenics are coming into view.

Are the (apparently bad) reputation they have deserved...or does it truely depend on the particular car, its Service history etc?

Very broad question i know...and i appreciate that at this end of the market there is a certain gamble...but there are so many around...they can't ALL be in the garage every other week?

Any advice welcomed!

Re: Scenic reliability?

i was glad to get rid of my scenic, it had done 123000 kilometers, and the engine called it quits, thats after dozens of other things going wrong, never again.

Re: Scenic reliability?

My Father in Law had one in 02 from new other than for a a set of ignition coils the car's been fine, well until some plonker broadside rammed him not long before Xmas. The replacement car was yet another Scenic.

IMO, that speaks for itself.
