The worrying thing about the Renault dealers was that some of them had never actually done the job before. French Correction had done over 25 Scenic cam belts and really knew their stuff.
Yet again it goes to show that, once a car is out of warranty, a local specialist may be far better value than a franchised dealer.

That said, the Scenic's service intervals are very good, which does help, so I suppose I shoudl thank Renault for something. Which I haven't done since the door fell off my Renault 11.
