Re: Help - Looking to purchase a megane III, common problems?
If you're buying from a Renault dealer, I'd now be inclined to ask them to provide you with a complete copy of the car's repair / service history & take it from there.
I had the above for a Mk2 GT Laguna it's amazing what I found in there. The car had had two bonnets fitted over a period of 4 day's just before I purchased the car.
The above information proved invaluable when the car was 2 & half year old, what looked like the shape of a number 6 appeared in the metallic pain work. The dealer didn't want to know, until I contacted
& mentioned the history highlighting the bonnet changes.
forced the dealer to respray the front end, & a good job they made of it too.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
