We bought a brand new Megane Scenic in 1996, the 1.9 TD.

Traded in an E reg 1.6 BX we had since 1988. Head gasket was gone on the BX but still driveable, car had done 150k miles, got £400 trade in for it (in 1996).

The only problem that occured with the Megane was the heater matrix became blocked, and you have to remove the entire dash to replace it, one of the few jobs that I've ever paid a garage to do.

I'm not sure what Renault dealers are like now, but the Renault dealer was so bad I think the one we got the Megane from lost their franchise with Renault. Dreadful dealer, even worse than the Citroen dealers back then.

Megane now resides with a relative, not sure how many miles it's done, about 150k I think, and still going OK.

I had a clio 1.4 8valve sport, it was exemplary, did 50k in that & apart from brake pads/discs/tyres & exhaust, nothing went wrong, & no we never went to a main dealer to get it serviced either. It was approx 3yrs old when we got it.
