Re: Renault Megane 1 - Phase 2 Information.

My wife has a Phase 2 Coupe 1.4, a 1999 car bought 7 years ago with 7k on the clock, it now has a massive!!! 71k wow, much loved beast by her all that has been done in 7 years set of front discs, window reg, both drive shafts (down to Renaults inability to keep gaiter clips on) and both wheel bearings (only needed 1 but changed wrong one), I changed both bottom ball joints whilst I was around that area as it has developed a knock on uneven roads, ball joints done knock still evident must be anti roll bar bushes.
All in all a very good car indeed, noisey on the duel carrage.motorways at 80, but if you wanted to do lots of motorway back in 99 then you would have bought a 1.6 or 2.0Ltr, pickup on this little engine is superb on slip roads etc lost a bit now as we changed the 14" steels for 15" Oz Alloys, it is far better built than my Meg 2 CC.
