Re: I'm thinking about getting a Renault Megane 1.6
I'm not sure if my view will be of much help to you, I've had mine just after I retired in 2008 from new, I've done only 17.5K miles but touch wood, it's never missed a beat, & other than the loss of power, is almost as good & as comfortable a drive as my prior Lag 2 150 dCi Gt was.
But like I say I've had it from new, only done 17.5K miles. I've looked after it, had it serviced as Renault procedure 12 intervals.
I don't bother getting it out of the garage for trips of less than 10 miles out, + 10 miles back. I usually take the bus, train or scab a lift.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
