hi guys

gosh didnt realise my post would cause such a debate lol

the car is fumy from the back of the car, and it does seem to be using more petrol

Being a woman im not good with cars, so i spoke to renault and they want 100 plus vat for a diagnostic, would it be possible to have a diagnostic other than at renault?

i had the throttle body cleaned and it hasnt made any difference, im just so gutted cant believe i bought such an unlucky car, i saved for ages for one of these and all its doing is costing me a fortune

its had new coils 6 wks ago (not sure if that makes a difference)

thanks guys for all your info im so grateful, not having a man around the house i dont know where or who to ask about this car
