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 RCS & mentioned the history highlighting the bonnet changes.

RCS forced the dealer to respray the front end, & a good job they made of it too.
