"cambelt change twice"
Why so many, aren't all Renaults 5yr/72k?
1999 car year to date 2009 , however the 1st belt was changed when we purchased car 5 years ago at around 7k, sensible thing to do if it has not belt change history at least you know you are starting afresh, 2nd belt change done about 2 months or so back as it was due on 5 years from last one, doesn't seem excessive to me 2 belts in 10 years.
"WHAT a little car that was, never missed a beat"
No use looking back, you have moved on to a Renault!
It is nice to have fond memories of your last car, especially a make that every one slated me for buying, "you'll have nothing but trouble with it" was a line constantly spun to me, poppycock it ran like a train up to 130k on a 1200cc petrol engine, before I sold it on, I know I have moved to a Renault, belive me, owned it for nearly 3 months now and roof sticks every now and then so you have to spray roof lock with silicone to make it work, airbag light flashes occasionally, so you have push plug togther under passenger seat, keycard went west 3 week after purchase so had to be repaired this time lucky for me, passenger rear window broke, again lucky for me bought one from scrap yard, and Sat nav/CD player occasionally makes this horiffic chattering noise like it is try to read a disc that is not there, the only way to stop it is to give the dash next to it a sturdy slap, oh yes and the passenger front window lags badly behind the other 3 and it leaks in 2 places now, sorted out the 3rd leak and a 1.9 diesel! where on earth have Renault sent all the power to, because it not to the front wheels, so as you can imagine at this present time I am not overly impressed with the CC, you can certainly tell it was rushed to do battle with the Pug , friend of ours has a 307cc what a good car, quick as well begining to wonder if I should have hung on a bit longer and bought a 307cc
looks like I am in the Renault for the rest of this year at least, but to be fair it needs a fair crack of the whip as it has had some problems which is possibly why the last owner ditched it, hopefully I have cleared some of them just the anoying sat nav noise, passenger window is livable I will have to have a look inside perhaps it is just running on dry runners, I have zip taged th airbag plug together and seems to have stopped it working apart light has not flashed now for nearly 2 weeks, she is begining to grow on me
...... However, if she carries on costing me money she will be in the paper and sold on next spring without a doubt!
