Kangoo - Biggest pup I've ever bought!
My Kangoo 4x4 Trekka I mean! I've been driving now for 43 years and this is undoubtedly the largest pile of poo I've ever owned. I should have known Renaults were crap when I found this site whilst researching my next car. Pages of faults, foibles and poor build quality, I should have seen it coming!
Owned it 4 years (optimist that I am I thought every cockup would be the last). Only done 140.000 kilometres, about 84.000 miles.
New instrument panel.
2 new indicator stalks.
New wiper motor.
New sunroof motor and mechanism. Never operated since repair because I don't trust it to close.
New fuel injectors at 69.000 kilometres
Stuck on rear brakes, 3 times.
Three new ignition keys.
Annoying whine at 90kph, the ordinary road speed limit in France.
The latest is new preheaters and fuel pump and I don't know when it will be ready. It's been in the garage for 3 days now and I live in the sticks.
Back to Ford (or even Vauxhall) methinks!!!!
Currently in French Chemist's garage:
Kangoo 4x4 + Mondeo
