Re: Which models should Renault retain?

Personally, I think the poor reputation for reliability goes hand in hand with savage depreciation. The secondhand market does not suffer fools gladly (talking about car companies/not car owners), and this makes their products risky propositions when new & later on at resale time.

I believe that they really should adopt more Japanese reliability into their innovative products, and if that means rationalising their product portfolio to eliminate overlap & poor sellers, then so be it.

Just because they withdraw from a market segment does not mean they cannot return, once they learn how to build cars that people will be proud to own.

Just my pov.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
