I have an 03 Megane, and as I type this I'm very frightened that I'm going to regret it but... I've not had any major problems with it (yet)
It told me that I had a flat battery the other day though, and I didn't. Someone told me that could be the electrics playing silly buggers, so even though I love it more than a car should be loved, I'm keeping my eye out for a replacement.
We have a 2004 Scenic. It's the worst car I have ever had. Since we bought it (from Renault). Electric windows knackered, just had to have the entire dashboard replaced, numerous sensors. We have sspend about £2500 on it in the last 18 months. Put it in autotrader last month but not sold it! I hate it.
We also have a Citroen picasso. Not a nice looking as the Scenic but we've not had a single problem with it. HTH.
Thank you all so much! You've made up my mind. I feared I was being seduced by the good price of £1300 with 77000 miles on the clock. If I'm possibly/likely not to be able to rest easy after buying it for me it's now a no goer.
