why did i buy a renault

i actualy bought the renault at an auction,i went to buy something else but it went for more than i expected, the renault came up, it looked okay, only 114000 on the clock, and was dead cheap,i didnt know much about renaults at that stage, it wasnt till i started having starting problems that i searched for forums on the web, dont get me wrong, its a good car to drive, when its going okay, but, lets be honest, reliability is not their strength, and reselling them is not easy, servicing is expensive, parts are expensive, the dealers seem to have little or no knowledge on the car, thats renaults problem, they need to spend time training their service agents in how to fix their products, and on customer service, despite that, i actually enjoy driving it, i just wish it was more rugged in construction, especially in electrics,and transmission. we still have the corolla, its a bench mark for other manufacturers to follow on, how to keep it simple, but reliable,
