My girlfriend is Belgian and we have a house in the Ardenne region of Belgium and in the UK and do a lot of travelling between the two. Our car was a Mazda 626 2.0L supercharged diesel ( it was never imported into the UK so you will probably not have heard of it before ). The Mazda was very fast...

Excellent

Very economic and more

can be dear to insure for young drivers

Okay, I've decided to write my opinion in a different style. I want YOU to imagine you are in the car. So, open the door, get in and sit back and relax..... Is your seat comfy enough? If not then adjust the seat using the conveniently placed levers which are situated just under your knees, left...

“Chosen by default”

Does exactly what it says on the tin

Not really a looker

I ended up with my Megane in a very roundabout way. I had just started a new job, and was given the company car list - a very extensive one, with options to pay more and get a bigger car, or get some extra cash in my pay packet for taking a smaller car, and virtually every manufacturer included...

I was more or less in love with the Maxi Megane Kit Car which was running around in the World Rally Championship. In Turkiye where I live, we actually had the Coupe and the Coach (Hatchback) models but my need for space was far too much for these cars. In year 2000, all of a sudden I came to meet...

good value for money

I bought this car after consistently noticing it drive past me on the road .... and then being pleasantly surprised at its very reasonable price and good safety record - it is the safest car in its class. The sport alize has a fully automated hood, compact disc player and air conditioning. It...

“Best company car so far”

published 01/09/2003

nice looks, extensive extras pack

new style ugly on outside, cool on inside

My dad has had many company cars, but the Megane has to be probably the coolest yet. Its a kind of beigey/silvery pale colour, and is absolutely fully loaded for a Y plate. It has a full electric pack and sunroof, with air con, which is strange as, either a sunroof or air con are fitted, not...

Great Cornering, High Specification, Comfortable

Unreliable, Desing faults described as features

This review is of the 1.6 Privilege - 2004 model. Why did I buy the megane?? I have asked myself that question many a time, I geuss I was swayed by a good drive and a comprehensive feature list. I took delivery of my car in June 2004. A 1.6 Privilege in Red, the only extra I had fitted was the...

Great engine, 40+mpg

Awful suspension, old man looks

Every year for the last three years I've told everyone who will listen that I'm getting rid of my car. Every MOT I say this will be the last. And yet I still have this car. Why? The simple answer is that there's nothing wrong with it.  Nothing to justify getting a loan and upgrading. Yes it's...

Satisfactory

Good Brakes, standard features

lazy performance, handling

Lets not beat around the bush on this one. It’s a tough old world out there in new car sales. 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...

“A great car.......”

published 16/11/2005

Compact. Good Specification. Economical

Aesthetically poor.

Our second car, or to be more precise, my wife`s car is a Megane, on a "Y" plate. 6 years ago, her VW Jetta was finally giving up and clearly it was time for a change. To be honest, i`d not considered a Megane, but she insisted on checking one out. We had a look and she was hooked. I must admit...

Gearbox, A few minor niggles, Gearbox

As a part time (employed) motor mechanic I would never have bought a French car but this Megane 1.6RT Sport came up very cheap on 86000 miles with the clutch shot to bits. (NOT a joy to replace) The car was a genuine one owner with a full service history, from the original main dealer. Overall it...

I've had my Megaine for 3 months now and I've nothing but praise for it. It's 2 years old and had 32,000 miles on the clock, now it's got 38,000 and it's been extremely reliable, always starts first time with a reassuring growl that tells you it will always start first time, if you know what I...

“There she goes!”

Drives like a dream

Rattly windows

The 1600 engine provides plenty of 'vroom' when required. Handles exceptionally well and looks smart. Around town I am averaging around 40 miles per gallon. Standard equipment is excellent - includes electric windows, mirrors and sunroof, 4 airbags, alloys, fog lamps, PAS and ABS. There are three...

Spacious and good looking

Problematic engine!

When my boyfriend and i bought our Renault megane from a used car centre, we were well impressed, it was only two year old and we thought we had found a bargain!! We had it serviced the day we drove it off the forecourt by an independant mechanic, everything was spot on. Sadly, it didn't stay...

Reliability, suspension

My girlfriend bought her Renault Megane 1.6 RT (1997 'R' reg) sport 2 years ago, being the most attractive out of the three different vehicles I had recommended in the forecourt. The first thing you notice about the Megane is the sleek curves and sporty look, supplied by the spoiler, alloy wheels...
