Exclamation Re: A new Master (possible) purchaser

Don't make a mistake of your life fella, i have a 2.5 traffic (9seater) as i do work as mini cab and am fuming!!! bought it from renault garage, second hand with 40k miles, all good for 4 months then things start going wrong,wrong,wrong!!! with in the 16-18 months I've had just problems, repairs after repairs. DPF filter x 3 times as I've been told by renault engineer I drove the van not long enough to get that filter hot enough to clear it self!!! 3 x 160 that cost me, clutch went in december, that was 1600, then service 300, then timing belt, water pump,fan bets,shock absorbers and break pads (front only) 2500 and now I have to give my van to franchised renault garage next door to my home place to get the gear box fault fix and they are thinking what is the problem? as because it is an auto box (quick shift) they advised me to call renault customer care and complain about the fault as they said they won't touch it so i need to take it to proper renault garage!!! and what is ****ing me off the most are labour charges at 96 p/h and still even so called specialists won't touch it. So if you a mad man or rich person which can afford it go ahead but I advise you either stay with ford or get vw or some japanese van as they value for money is worth much more with renault. This is my second renault and i promised my self I'll be switching to VW, does not matter that it's twice more expensive in some cases but at least it will save you unneccesary stress,cost and time as it will not break down so often as renault, believe me.
Good luck with your future pourchase
