Potential 225 owner

Postby Fz92 » Wed Aug 28, 2019 7:40 am

Looking a possibly buying a 07 225 this weekend. I'm aware of all the electrical problems they can have but how likely are these going to leave the car undrivable? I can deal with them as long as it doesnt take the car off the road for a while.

I'm not aware of any 225 - specific issues, but Mégane 2s are plagued with electrical issues. Water gets into the door and window controllers, and the box behind the wheelarch leading to all kinds of trouble. You will be hard pressed to find a car with all the windows working.. Central locking and key card issues are common, leading to being locked out or not starting. Check if the blower fan only works on full. Another common one. Most are not showstoppers, but driving around with no ventilation or a stuck window can be interesting.
