Hope that helps.
They suffer the same problems as many cars.

The Avantime (2 and 3 litre) suffers from the same issues as any other Renault. The main one I've had has been the coil packs from time to time.

There are some issues with the interior but other than that nothing too much.

My car is having a new auto box in the next week or so. The main problem is that parts on an expensive car are much higher than a small one.

The Renault tech probably hasn't come across many Avanitmes or Vel Satis so only hears bad things!!

I think swapping the Megane would be a good thing. The problem youhave is the fact you say it will cost £10k to insure!
