Re: Recall warning!

I am not sure what spec the recall is covering but mine is a 1.9dc1 130 on a 56 plate.
I was thinking about having mine remapped a couple of months ago. glad I didn't now!

Recall warning!

I have just had my Megane in for service.

I'm not sure that my aircon has ever worked! The only thing that happens when you press the button is the orange light comes on! No more noise nothing. I took it into the dealer while it was still in warranty and they re-gassed the unit and said it was fine. I wonder how much extra I paid for an ora...

Did they give you any idea of cost and how long it would take to fix? I have had a couple of Renaults before this; a 25, and a 19. They were both excellent cars and I did over 100k in both without a hitch. It seems that since the early 90's the build quality has been on a steep downwards path. This ...

On am 120 mile mostly motorway journey my 1.9 dci managed 72mpg! OK, I was driving at 56mph but what the hell.
