Good points:
1. V. Confortable
2. Good MPG
Mine was a 2.2dCi

Q1 The turbo had to be replaced under warranty in mine through leaking oil seals before the car was due its first.

Q2 I did have a problem with electronics although it appeared to have been caused by a botched job while fitting the tow-bar. The indicator fuse blew on numerous occasions while towing the van, but no problem while the car was solo, Renault removed & replaced all of their prior tow-bar wiring under warranty which resolved the problem.

Q3 Front tyres needed replacing @ 20K miles

Q4 Rear suspension rubber bushes needed replacing again under warranty although by this time the 3 warranty had expired.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
