Did Renault sort out the problems with the pencil type ignition coils. My previous Scenic (03 reg )had a coil go on me and I did`t know then that there was a weakness in them. I have an 07 scenic 1.6vvt petrol and was wondering if the coils in these have the same issues as the previous model scenic. Thanks Dennis

no idea if they still have problems
but i bought a set of 4 from ebay for £30 odd only needed one and have 3 waiting in the car just in case as it only takes 5 mins to change one so far around 1000miles with no problems

Thanks for reply, what type of car do you have? I had then an 03 scenic that had a coil go on me, when I called the AA out to the car they carry them as it is such a commen breakdown problem with the old shape scenic. I was just wondering if the newer shape versions (53 plate onwards) had the same issue. I will buy some off ebay to carry in case one goes lol. Thanks Dennis
