I will NEVER buy Renault again
Please someone tell me that all Renaults aren't as poorly built and unreliable as my 3 year old Scenic II.
I bought it from new, and it's had almost 25 visits back to the dealers to have various things fixed. They include:
Tailgate struts left loose
Airbag system fault (5 trips to dealer to sort this one!)
Automatic headlights coming on in bright sunshine
Sleepsafe headrest clip broke
retractable load cover plastic lug broke off - all replaced
faulty electric wing mirror switch
handsfree locking sensors not working
12v socket on dashboard came loose
steering stop replaced due to clunking on full lock
Renault's tow bar below EU standard height - replaced
dipstick cover broke off - replaced
all glow plugs replaced
front discs & pads replaced - excessive wear
parking brake bound on - rear discs & pads replaced again!
air con & all ventilation not working (just happened)
I have 3 weeks of my 3 year warranty left and I'm dreading the cost of keeping this car on the road. Are they all like this???
Currently in Andy R's garage:
2005 Renault Scenic II 1.9dCi Privilege - not for much longer though!
