Re: New to Renault - Advise needed.

I'd say generally speaking the petrol version is more reliable than the diesel but they are prone to coils going (as are a lot of modern cars). The privilege is very well spec'd with lots of creature comforts and gadgets to play with.

If resale value is an issue then i would suggest you look at a different marque, Renaults unfortunately sit near the bottom for holding their price. VW, Audi, Bmw are nearer the top end but you will end up paying more initially so its swings & roundabouts.
