Well, after having my 1.5 dci 80bhp lose power this morning I'd say stay away from Renaults!

70k on the clock and the lights around the heater dials have gone out, the air con has an electrical fault that will only work when the engine fan kicks in and now after going down the motorway slip road to build speed up, it struggles to hit 60mph.

Quite frankly i now hate French cars and wished I had bought a Nissan Tino. I've had loads of Nissan's and never had a problem once with them. I get a 54-plate Scenic and all of a sudden everything is failing on it.

As you can tell I'm very annoyed as the diesel injectors might need replacing, and at 245 each + VAT and don't forget 2 hours charge to fit them at Renault, i think this car won't be lasting much longer.
Currently in grumblesheeve's garage:
2004 Scenic 1.5dCi Dynamique and also a 2003 Espace Expression 2.0L Petrol Auto
