The dealers may be fibbing - I popped coils on my V6 Laguna, and my other half has a 1.6 Clio, which popped a coil the other day - exploding coils seems to be something of a "feature" on all modern petrol Renaults.

A knackered coil does show in the diagnostics though, although I believe it isn't cylinder specific.

However, whenever I've had coils go, the car hasn't gone into "limp home mode" - it's just run like a bag of nails and flashed the toxic fume light at me.

Currently in Benny's garage:
