Renaults built before about 2002 seem to last alot longer than those built after. just spend some time reading this forum you will see for your self. And I am sure this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Have you ever wondered why korean manufactures, (hyundia kia) put 5 and 7 year warranties on there cars and vans, speaks for itself dont you think.
That's a bit harsh Otis. After market warranties are available and can be just as good as manufacturer warranties. There is absolutely no need to sell a car just because the warranty has expired.

Its not just Renault who have lots of warranty claims against their vehicles, premium marques such as Mercedes and BMW have just as many warranty claims made.
