    Hello everyone A few months ago, I bought a Clio IV RS and I'm very happy with it. However, there is an odd noise coming from the engine (I think) since I bought it, but I never thought too much about it. Still, I'm curious to see if this is normal or if I should get my car checked. The noise...

I did not pay attention at first, but I now notice that when the car is stationary, in addition to the vibration of the gear stick which is minimal and normal, there is a sound from the gear stick,a kind of bzzzz. If I move...

    I have changed my espace (04) for a grand espace (11) and on the way home over approx 70 miles I notice what sounded like what I believed was the odd suspension noise from the front struts . This was noticed over the odd bumps in the road . The car other than this had handled well over this...
