Anyway, from the mountain of paperwork the 1 owner filed, my car had a new engine/
/cat at 70k, costing renault over £4k. Presumably this is related to the throttle sensor recall??????
I think you'll find that the engine was probably replaced because the
blew up, taking the engine with it. The engine wouldnt be replaced due to a recall related to throttle sensor.
Just make sure you change the engine
/ filter every 9,000 miles with a good quality synthetic
and filter. The 18,000 mile service interval is too long, causing the
failures that the DCi engine is renowned for unfortunately, Renault have now changed the service interval to 12,000 miles !!??
