No test drive yet. Have tracked down a couple of 2.0T Dyn reasonably local, so might try these out?
Surprised about engine trouble with the V6? Thought as this was such an "old" engine that all the gremlins would have been ironed out?

As numbers were very limited I guess trim items are very difficult to replace? Any stuff prone to failure?

Is servicing OK? Renault dealers I guess?
