  • Living with it

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    EVERYTHING! All 4 motors in windows have had to be repolaced (although thankfully found double-secret clasue whereby Renault paid majority, still expensive). Fan does not work on highest (4) setting, and cost more to fix than worth. Electronic dash faulted out before we bought, replaced under warranty. Left-rear door bumper unexpectedly bent out-of-shape (read others had this erxperience), hard to find to replace, although can be done oneself. Had gear-sensor changed, and now pressure sensors in valves/pistons shot. Bottomless pit!

    What's most practical about your car?

    Wider wheel base than Zafira, and lower ride, so sturdier and better handling. Losts of hidden compartments for storage.
