NEED ADVICE PLEASE

Postby TSR » Tue Mar 18, 2008 5:54 pm

Hello there guys and gals this is my first post so here goes. I will be getting my 07 megane 1.6 dynamique in the next few days from my main dealer just a few worrys tho. I have read some really bad reviews about the electrics and general reliability of the megane but went for it any way as it looks amazing with plenty of good stuff inside (panaramic roof, key card, auto lights/wipers, aircon). At first i thought it was just the early models but seeing some reviews about later ones to.

I found this site and thought who better to ask than the people who drive them. I know that every car has minor faults but are the people who say that its the worst car they have ever owned and its been in the garage 15 times a select few that just want to vent their anger. I think it looks stunning and drives great from the test drive and my previous car which was a Renault clio never let me down once but the sales man aint going to tell me even if there is a problem with the megane. So can somebody please offer some advice and put my mind at rest cause its driving me crazy thinking i may have bought a problematic car.

Look forward to your replys and more discutions in the future when i finally get mine.

Tony

Tony,

There are bad examples of every model, and the Megane is no exception. I got a facelifted one since all the major issues with the model should have been sorted out. I've had a few things go wrong, but all fixed under warranty - so not the most reliable car I've had, but not the worst either. Beaing in mind that the Megane has been a strong seller all over Europe, there might be more people with negative experiences, since there are more people in the first place. The Renault quality has been improving, so being realistic, things should be good with yours. If your dealer is good then if things do go wrong, getting them sorted with minimal hasstle and cost will be good - that's how I believe all the prestige manufacturers (and those deemed to have high reliability) earn a good reputation.

Enjoy your Megane!

To me it's worth it. If I brought a new Megane I'd pay the money for it (I got mine nearly new, so with/without the price is the same). I like the ability to cool the car without the A/C on or windows down, and since there's glass over the rear passengers it allows them to see more sky etc - my son (18 months) always smiles when I operate the sunroof, and he's going to appreciate seeing the trees and aeroplanes overhead...
