Yeah I know! Saff is built differently to a lot of cars though - After handling the door on one of these and then a normal car, every normal car feels like its built from tin foil! It also has airbags everywhere all over the place.

Doesn't change the fact its 10 yrs old though as you say which is why I'm a careful driver. I love my saffy!

Must be said though, after parking it next to a W reg volvo that was up for sale last week I was well impressed with the saff - The volvo looked and felt like a tin can which was suprising as they've got tank reputation..

I'm not saying the saff is safer than any other car but they've put a bit of effort into it which is a lot for renault...
