My First Car — Don't start first time, most of the time. But when it does, provides good service majority of the time, and is quite nippy (The 3 points say it all). Doesn't Cost too much to run, standard drive nothing exciting. The one bad thing is that the petrol tank is made from plastic, which can be prone to a little leak. Good temporary first car, not for the long run!

Pros: Gets me from A to B

Cons: Leaks petrol on a full tank.

Renault Clio Dynamique+ 1.6 16v — Performance - Very nippy, light, nimble, pulls in all gears and is a lot of fun to drive and a bit of a sleeper as most clio's aren't a 1.6 16v. Build Quality - Not the best out there but still good quality and was solid underneath, loved the steering very accurate and solid all the way upto about 100 then it's a little different. Appearance - Interior a bit grey and plastic but still fairly pleasent on the eye, exterior very nice and modern looking back end a little girly but nothing major, little too much plastic in my opinion though. Cost - Good mileage average of about 32mpg, maintenance? too much to list this is a French car what do you expect? Fun Factor - Absolutely amazing car to drive I would look for excuses to go out in this car it is so much fun. Recommend to a friend? Yes

Pros: Great little fun car to drive plenty of power.

Cons: It's French need I say more?

Renault Clio Dci 65ph — Bought with some 159 000 km (arround 100 000 miles) in perfect conditions, in finition dynamics. Motorisation, 1.5 DCI 65ph (48 kW). Perfs are good enough for my purpose, it's a car, not a formula 1 ;-) (even if sometimes, I wish I had more powerhorses when I takeover : / but it costs $$ ) About comfort, it's a very great car, with it's semi bacquet-seats, it's wheelcontrol, ...

Pros: Cheap and pretty car for personal and also professional displacements <3

Cons: Not enough powerful : /

Renault Clio 1.6 16v By Charles Audenaert — I did like the car for the honest performance, it's 1.6l engine which outputs 110 hp, a quite good looking car with some electronics issues though but I liked it as it was my first car ever. cheap to insure and cheap maintenance cost, good overall mpg (8,5l/100km with a sporty driving style), a fun car to drive though I didn't like the handling and the lack of oomph in the revs (but at least it's "torquey" for a 1.6 16v)

Pros: looks, engine, performance, value for money, nice boot space

Cons: electronics issues, fragile

The Only Real Sportcar From Renault? — Amazing handling, V6 engine instead of backseat, rear wheel drive, says it all... It's a Renault Clio Sport, that was imported to sweden and TWR Motorsports, handbuilt and exported back to europe.

Pros: Looks, performance

Cons: Its unique... hard to get good option parts

Cornering On Three Wheels — Great fun to drive, tiny engine gives reasonable excuse to rag the nuts off it, lift-off oversteer, Loud Aftermarket stereo, powerful upgraded brakes Narrow little tyres, slack gearbox, noisy cabin at speed.

Great Light Sporty Car. — This is a great car as a first car. It's the Clio Si, so it has the sports interieur. It has a 100hp strong petrol engine. It drive's fast for a little car. I didn't had any big costs on it and it has now 125.000km.

Pros: Powerfull for a little car, sporty, easy to park

Cons: Its a little to small for me. it drive's normal at 8l/100km

It's A Puzzler — They say green cars are unlucky an i reckon i'm findin out the hard way! So far its bin bumped, I've bumped it, and it broke down within 2 weeks of me ownin it. Shame cos apart from the electrics and dodgy french build quality its a good motor

Pros: Performance (RSi model), leather, CD, air con blah blah etc

Cons: Unlucky colour even though its nice, crap electrics, french build quality sucks
