Lagdti a very diplomatic answer. My opinion is a little less warm lol..The short answer to your question is not very....
Do as the man sayschange oil every 6k with 5w/40 full synthitic/ if your windows squeek a lot, take th edoor covers off and oil and grease the cables and runners, gearboxes are a little weak to so get the oil changed its trp and renault spec only, if you do them 3 points you should be ok.
I think that was in response to my comments about Alfas and Fiats. Lag loves Alfas and has a Fiat as a restoration project (if he happens to get the welding sorted before it actually splits in two.)No tut tut please.
Show me any European car that can top that (though I can give one example - see below.) The Japanese are in a different league when it comes to reliability and build quality. We all know and accept that, so why not bin the whole European car industry in one go?My previous car was a Mitsubishi Galant. I had it for just over 5 years. Apart from the annual service, I never had to see my dealer, never had to repair anything, no rattles, didn't even need to change a light bulb.
Fill in petrol, tax the car and drive it.
Show me a Renault, any Renault that can top that.
Our previous Clio II ran for four trouble-free years until it developed a running fault that was probably Top Dead Centre. That's a cheap DIY fix, though we bunged it to the dealer because we had the extended warranty, at which point we saw the car's replacement and did the swap.My current car, an Espace IV is barely 1 year old, done only 5000 miles - has not started and left me stranded twice, has had more warning lights than my Xmas tree and I'm almost on first name terms with my local Renault dealer!!!
