Re: buying advice megan II


I own a Meg II and have done 35,000 in two years. It's a fantastic car, and has had only a few problems:

Boot catch replaced
Drivers Electric window failed (Very common, check all windows on yours)
MAP Sensor failed causing poor running and CHECK INJECTION message.

You don't say what engine is in this Mégane? Most unhappy Megane owners seem to have a 1.9 dCi, which is prone to a whole host of problems including turbo failure. The petrol models are more reilable, although expect the same fuel economy from the 1.4 as the 2.0! (Hence why I bought the 2.0).
Currently in MéganeDynamique's garage:
Avantime 3.0 V6 24v Privilège Auto, Vel Satis 3.0 dV6 Initiale, Vel Satis 2.2 dCi Auto Privilège, Laguna II 3.0 V6 24v Dynamique, Mégane II 2.0 VVT Dynamique, Mégane 1.6 Auto Privilège+ Convertible, Clio 1.9 RT-D
