Re: Scenic III reliability?

I had a Scenic II 1.6 for 3 years, and I have to say it was the worst car i have ever owned, problems with EPB, dephaser, battery drain, A/C Compressor and towards the end it sounded like the engine was going to fall apart. It really felt like everything that could go wrong did.

A year ago i replaced it with an 11 plate Scenic 3 1.5 which i am more than happy with. It is a vast improvement to my old scenic in just about every way! The only thing i can say about it that is negative is that i wish it had a little bit more power.

As was said before a FSH is recommended, I was also told when i bought mine that the service intervals recommended in the book were not reliable and the car should be serviced annually.
