I bought a 2000 model year RXE Auto. I had it for less then 2 weeks, returned the car and got my money back. 60000 miles on the clock and nothng but trouble from the Auto gearbox.
It was in the garage 3 times to do repairs.
The Auto gearbox failed every time within 24 hours of repair by going into safemode.
They changed Solenoids and the gearbox
and god knows what else.
I would never touch a Renault Auto again as long as I live. Promise!
