Re: New to Renault - Advise needed.

I love VW touran but unfortunaly thats almost double the price for same milage and age, I wouldnt mind this loosing 20-30% value in 2 years as my annual milage is only 5k but if it looses half of its valve in 2 years time then it rings alarming bell.

As far as its solid car and doesnt loose too much I would go for that.

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.
