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

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

F7r Inside... — +150 bhp, 17" rims, Lowered chassis, Angel eys on front nowadays, Lexus-style tail-lights, Electric sunroof, Heated frontglass etc... Will tint windows someday and chance tail-lights, driver's seat is in the need of repair too... First Renault for me, but not the last. :)

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.

Dislike: Cost of Ownweship Megane is fun to drive, but costly in maintenance..especially as it ages..it is always in need of botox!

Costly to repair, Fuel economy not great

'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!
