What do 'admin' think about this? As someone said previously, maybe there should be a separate forum category with a topic for each engine size? Just that it ain't an ownership problem as such but it does seem to be an interest of many members. Widely varying figures too. :shock:

Yeah, I was expecting it to be more around your mark. I shall have to check the rear brakes to see if they're catching; tyre pressures are spot-on, though.

Cheers for the replies - I think they prove the point! :wink:

(I only get 33mpg with my 1.4 with mostly A-road driving at speed limits :cry: )

Stickies for fuel consumption

Evening all, I was wondering whether it might be an idea to have sticky topics for fuel consumption for each available Megane engine size? It seems to be a topic that arises fairly commonly but any posts lose value as incomparable figures are bandied about all over the place! If there was a specific...

Renault aren't lying about the consumption! As far as I'm aware, any manufacturer's fuel consumption figures are based on standard prescribed European tests and are not allowwed to be declared by the manufacturer themselves. And, as mentioned above, it is commonly most sensible to refer to the 'urba...

Diggin up an oldie but it may be of use to someone. I also had this problem with my 1.4. It was coupled with a failure to start when the engine was warm (i.e., not hot but left for 10-15 mins). My garage could diagnose neither problem despite repeated attempts (apparently). However, one morning, I w...

I would say that that the garage that just carried out the work for is responsible for this one and not you much maligned Megane this time! :wink:
Take it back to them ans get them to sort it :)

Most tyre fitters have disclaimers. My local prints the following on all receipts: "Check tightness of all wheelbolts after 30 miles. We are not responsible"...blah..blah..blah. Also worth checking tightness of bolts. Many tyre-fitters tighten the nuts too much - far beyond the recommended level. Th...

I've had a few minor niggles on my 04 1.4 'Sport' Hatch but it has largely been very reliable. Alomost out of warranty, though, so will be keeping my fingers crossed after hearing of everyone elses problems! :wink: As others have said, I'm sure there are the same kind of hassles with most brands.

end of warranty period

Simple question really. How many people have chickened out as their Meganes have reached the end of the warranty period and how many have decided to carry on regardless?

@Jimbo

Never a truer word spoken. Pearl black here as well. Looks great all waxed up in the summer but a pain in the arse at this time of year! Thinking of gunmetal/hologram grey or eclipse next time.

All models should have variable assistance. Mine is a '04' 1.4. I don't really notice a speed dependent difference but never find the steering weight inappropiate, either. A lot of movement back and forth will slow it down considerably, though. (Discovered whilst weaving to investigate another probl...
