Anyone elses Renault hate winter?

Winter has to be my favourite season. Love the snow, the cold and Christmas.

But my Mégane likes to make a song and dance of it. It protests every winter. Things just stop working, or need replaced, and to make it worse, December is MOT time!!

Last Winter, the Hands Free locking desided to stop working, so I had to take the key card out of my pocket to lock the car - how inconvenient! Also, really cold mornings would provoke an AUTO WIPER FAULT. The Exhaust also needed replacing and one of the lighting circuits kept tripping creating a need for a stock of 10A fuses ready for replacement!

Now that winter is upon us again, the exhaust has started blowing a bit, I have a CHECK INJECTION message making for poor starting and sluggish performance and when the passenger wing mirror electrically unfolds it just keeps going 180 degrees!


On the plus side, the Auto Climate Control and Heated Seats are outstanding.

Anybody elses Renault as grumpy as it's owner on these cold mornings!?
