Good car in general, the only problem that i found was there are only four seats, but does have a handy little storage box inbetween the two back seats where the middle seat should be.
Handles well, but a small bit of understeer if powered a little too much round corners.
Had it about 18 months, even if i left it untouched for two weeks it would always start first time.
the petrol economy was good if driven sensibly, but as with all cars, give it abit or a run around and the petrol gauge needle seems to drop rather quick.
The insurance was good considering this was my first car and the litre and spec of it.
Small adjustments can be made to make this look alot more sporty, i added some alloys and tinted windows and it looked like a complete different car.
overall i would recomment this car, i ended up selling it to a friend and he is very pleased with it.
Good Spec, Good Price, overall Good. I have now had my Megane since Sept 2000, bought new from Renault London West (A40). I must say that the car was a really good buy and was not much dearer than the import versions currently flooding the country. The UK spec model has better security and the warranty is probably better (no need to try that out at the moment, touch wood) Firstly a downer. I found that most of the dealers did all they could to try and put me off buying this car, from not returning calls, not organising test drives, and giving really poor trade in values. Hoever this was not true of Renault London West, they were very professional and swayed me to buy the car despite the poor sales service from more local dealers. It worries me that if the sales service is poor, what is the after sales service going to be like. I that to come when my service is due. Back to the car. I went for the Sport Alize model 1.6 16v. Kinda wished I went for the 2.0 version now, as there are not so many about and the re-sale value would probably be higher. Good Points The spec is very good. Air-con, Cd player, elec windows and hood. Very comfortable car with good performance and economy. Bad Points Poor visability from rear window when raining, but that's a soft top for you. Not much room for rear passengers, but two adults are possible in the back, as long as the driver has short legs. Overall Good Fun, Good looking, Good Economy, Good Price. Not looking forward to the servicing.
