Sorry to hear all trouble you've had guys mine has been pretty good to me I bought it two and half yrs ago, it was 6.5 yrs old then with 32K on clock now up to 9yrs old with 57K. I had cambelt done because of the age, I have had to replace all four
and it feels like one is about to go again soon, had four new driveshafts long story only paid for two renault paid for the others one failed twice within 12 months of replacement. To be honest that was the biggest paid in the ¤¤¤¤.
Had a new central silencer and back box last month, 4tyres the odd bulb and of course the classic
Thats not bad really, its still extremely good at accelerating for a 1.4, when its clean it looks great and does 30 miles on the M1 every day fairly effortlessly with, monthly cross country 100+ mile journeys and scotland several times doing over 600 miles one day without complaining at all.
Credit were its due, its my first car as well and fairly fond of it.
