I have yet to test drive one although I have one booked for the weekend but am a bit worried on whether there is enough performance from the 106 diesel and have read lots of reports concerning iffy build quality and reliability. I have to say that after bad experiences with Renaults I am astounded by the Modus. The build quality is fantastic and utterly reliable so far - a superb driving experience (and I'm hard to please). Some thoughts would be really appreciated. Thanks.
New or used?
Someone pointed me towards and told me they are excellent resellers who, as the name suggests, specialise in Scenics. I've had a look at the site and am impressed with the range they have in stock. II am also told that every car they sell is subjected to a full Renault service before delivery.... so that should be a plus, no doubt.

They are in Berkshire, on the A4 past Aldermaston going towards Newbury. I looked it up on GoogleEarth and went to have a look. Nice and there was even a couple of 4x4s... didn't know there was such a Scenic.

Good luck and Welcome to the site.
