Gets Better With Age — We bought this car new in 1999, disappointed by noise at high speed. It has stood up well to family use; learner drivers, big children's camping holidays, continental trips, recycling loads. We felt happier sending young drivers off in a car with ABS and multiple airbags. Back seats are a bit narrow for 3 adults but legroom is excellent. Leather seats still look smart and paint is still shiny. Needs some suspension part or other, usually bushes every couple of years at MoT. Water pump, window winder motor and wiper linkage replaced in 2011 at 105000m. Battery replaced in 2004 and 2011, Front springs replaced 2013. Tyres perished before tread wore out. It cost £15000 in 1999. Probably spent £1500 in 14 years on repairs and replacements you wouldn't encounter if you changed cars every 3 years. It has never broken down, apart from when the batteries failed, so it's been cheap, reliable but very unexciting transport and much better than Renault's reputation.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Roomy interior but small enough to park easily; easy to use as a van; very reliable over 14 years.

Cons: Noisy engine over 60 mph; noisy suspension on British roads; not at all fun to drive.
