... Being Belgian registered and having Belgian insurance, we knew we would be in for a long wait for the insurance payout and not having cover for a replacement car whilst it was being sorted ( Belgian comprehensive insurance is very different to that in the UK ) we had to buy a replacement car ...

Living with a sensible car, its so boring.

AdvantagesEasy to live with, controls are light, excellent visbility, good performance when your going for it, excellent handling and road holding.

DisadvantagesFuel consumption, electrical problems with Engine Management system, short gearing.

"...ours was selling his 1998 Renault Megane 1.6 RT for a good price so that how I ended up with mine. Our car had low milage and was well maintained with full services history and all bills and receipts, etc so we brought it. First impressions were a distinct lack of power, I was used to nearly 300 ft lbs of torque where as the Renualt only has around 100 ft lbs so it did feel very slow, however, like all things you soon adapt and I quickly got used ..."

Put yourself in the driving seat

AdvantagesVery economic and more

Disadvantagescan be dear to insure for young drivers

"...about it? I have had my Renault Megane for 3 years, it's four years old. I have never had any trouble with it, it's great for my family. The car seat for my baby fits snugly in the back and my wife loves it, the reason being - my wife loves shopping, but she's the best woman I've had for shopping, she actually spent £4.80 on a whole outfit!!! But anyway the boot space is perfect for all our shopping. The petrol consumption is fantastic also - it ..." Read review

Another Renault Mystery

AdvantagesSound, sturdy, reliable, sleek looks

DisadvantagesHigh maintenance costs, consumption and depreciation

"...the famous 10 cylinder F-1 Renault engine. I suspect it might' ve been true since the performance was just below shattering. I also bought a 2 liter version to sell away soon for it provided no more performance than the 1.6liter 16V. (Same range of accessories came standard) Oil consumption is neglectable for a multi-valve engine with so much of performance. The engine is reliable. It will not let you down even under the hardest conditions. ..." Read review

as per advert, things COULD be marvelous

AdvantagesGood Brakes, standard features

Disadvantageslazy performance, handling

"...So why on earth have Renault face lifted the Megane and not played with the suspension? The 1.6 16v Alize is a car for one job – to get you from A to B. That’s it. No mess no fuss just plain old fashioned boring transportation. The cabin has been slightly spiced up, and I do mean slightly. The Alize I have has electric front windows, air con, twin front airbags, remote control RDS radio cassette, electric tilt and slide sun roof, ABS. ..." Read review

Chosen by default

AdvantagesDoes exactly what it says on the tin

DisadvantagesNot really a looker

" themselves, the security concious Renault have put a 30 second timer on the immobiliser, which means that you only have 30 seconds after unlocking the car to get the engine started, otherwise you have to get the key back out of the ignition, point it at the sensor, and restart the process again. Constantly irritating and frustrating - but then I do have to say that the car was never stolen, so who knows!!!!) The inside of the car is also very ..." Read review
