Pros

Cons

Costly to repair, Fuel economy not great

35

'96 Reneault Meganne 1.6e Rxe — Generally not a bad car at all... Build quality is OK, but no more, just had to have new brakes all round (ouch!) acceleration is good, braking is good. Exterior is much nicer than later models, interior is passable, but has too many silly small storage spaces! Cost wise, for a cir it's age, fuel economy pretty good, usually get ~32-33 mpg. Maintenance costs are highish, but not rediculous. Car is fun to drive, but not as fun as the '91 golf I had before it!

Megane Coach 2.0 16v — -Performance- The car is with good acceleration thanks to its 150bgp and its weight if 1100 kg, it also break well and handling is very good thanks of her hard sport suspension. -Build quality- build quality i son average level, but the car is from the average class so i think it's normal. -Appearance is good too, The shape of Megane Coupe is very sexy. Fun factor- this car is definately fun to drive, because no one of other drivers expects Renault to be fast enough to smoke them, especially some BMW drivers. At All this Megane is wolf in a sheep's coat

All electric, good sized fun car.

Cons

Rolls a bit in corners

Megane — First car of mine with all luxeries such as electric windows, mirrors, sunroof, ABS, Airbags, CD player, heated mirrors for those cold mornings. Takes a while for the heater to kick in and rusts out pretty quick because of age.

Decent performance, cheap as well.

Cons

Rattling of the dash.

Good, Reliable Car — Not too shabby performance, rattling on the dashboard (can be expected of a car of that age). HUGE bootspace, perfect for those camping weekends. Actually, a very good car.

Great Performance With Suprisingly High Build Quality By Gareth

Moving from a Clio to a Megane is a mixed bag. Gone is the go cart handling and lightning reactions of the Clio chassis, and in are the turbo swooshes and power surges of the Megane. Comfort is a high... Read More
