Re: Grand Scenic, worth a punt?


well the 1.9 DCI is nicer to drive then the 2.0 petrol and of course more economical, although its real world economy is about 50 mpg driven sensibly on a run, whereas the 1.5 dci can do almost 60mpg on a run. Same things apply as I said before but on 1.9 dci the turbo can fail and this is usually due to not changing the oil enough. FSH is a good thing though. If you do buy the car please ignore Renaults service every 2 years or 18k miles recommendation. Far better to change the engine oil and filters every year or max 10,000 miles. End of the day its up to you.

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.
