bought a 52plate 1.6vvt megane with comfort pack 55k in march she knocked 400 off the asking price because it hadn't had the important cambelt change,the wife test drove it and said fine i'll take it and gave the lady owner 2300 a few days later i test drove it and said to my wife, dont feel right, took it renault specialist who drove it and said thats how they are, however these vvt engines suffer with the dephaser pulleys and they recommended changing it when having the cambelt changed, so its cost me 368 to have it all done and so far so good,i have now purchased a warrenty with warrenty direct for 20 a month so if any more problems appear then hopefully shouldn't cost a lot apart from the excess.
