Re: Diesel vs Petrol

The advantage of a hybrid is exactly that... CITY DRIVING. The engine (a 1.5L petrol) is a very dirty engine.

Citroen should be making a diesel hybrid next year or in 2010.... we'll wait and see..... would love to have a Meg hybrid tho too!!

Re: Diesel vs Petrol

CVT is what Toyota have been using for years on their Prius....I think it's a good option for a low powered car (the Prius is like 76bhp), but for bigger/more powerful engines, I have my doubts how effective it can be...

Re: Heater not working on all settings

I had a similar problem... only mine is with Climate control so the fan speed is controlled electronically rather than by knob. But my fan stopped working altogether. Had it at the Ren garage and they said they changed the resistance which controls the fan speed. So maybe that is your prob too... mi...

Changing Suspension

Hi all, I'm more looking for suggestions rather than a real problem here.... My Meg 2 sedan has about 50,000Km and I was thinking of changing the shock absorbers. Was thinking of getting Monroe instead of the original ones. I had Monroe's on my Clio and they were great. Apart from shock absorbers, w...

Replacement Dampers

Hi, I'm thinking of replacing the dampers on my Megane 2005 saloon model. I was thinking of buying Monroe dampers. Does anyone have other suggestions of good quality dampers? What else should I change beside them? Ball joints, etc? I live in Malta where our streets are a bit $hitty with lots of poth...

As to third party servicing, I wouldn't recommend that.... at least until the warranty is over. Remember that dealers are good as saying things like ".... it happened beca...
