Re: Megane CC Buyers Guide/Advice


have you considered the 1.5 DCI in the megane CC. I am not against high mileage cars that have been well maintained and looked after but renaults don't wear high mileages well like an audi would. If its done over 70K then unless it has been done its going to need a new timing belt, pulleys, tensioners and water pump, except for the 2.0 DCI which has a timing chain. The 2.0 DCI is better then the 1.9 DCI but 1.9 DCI fine if its been well maintained. Make sure you change the oil and filters every 9,000 miles or once a year, ignore renaults 18k oil changes and use good quality oil , also don't forget to simmer the turbo . Hope this helps.

Currently in Haree's garage:
I don't have a garage just a driveway. The Modus 1.6 16v VVT Dynamique Auto is my Grandparents car which I also drive.
