I think several points arise from this thread.
We all welcome discussion about good and bad points on our cars, all info is helpful to someone and, if posted in time, a cheap and effective solution is often available leading to many years of happy ownership. However, sometimes you can get a dog (with any marque). No amount od suggestions will suffice in such cases and it may end up as a more economically viable solution to sell the car and start again. we are not affiliated to Renault and many members no longer own Renaults, so as a forum are not in a position to villify members who have had a bad experience.
My personal experience of cars is that at some stage they go wrong, all of them, and normally at the worst time.
I have had Fords with gutless engines and bonnet catch problems, all of which developed leaks causing to problems with lights, a VW that had an annoying habit of the wiper mechanisim coming adrift and a weak driveshaft, Minis - great car but who thought putting the dizzy cap behind the grill was clever in England and Renaults.
My experience of Renault is that with TLC and a good knowledge base they run well and have a nice, comfortable drive. But that is my opinion and whilst I may recomend a Renault I would not force my opinion on them.
