Space - the Renault Scenic is like a TARDIS, small & manouverable on the outside but huge on the inside. Plenty of room for driver and passengers & a wonderful configuration of seating that allows it to be a five-seat MPV or a van! My diesel has done 50mpg consistently over 7 years of ownership. I love this little car and would gladly replace my existing 9-year old (130,000 mile) model for another one only younger & with less miles on it. (read more)

The car is a 53 plate and I will outline the faults so far:
1) Howling sunroof that gets an air lock at 65mph and is awful on the motorways...
2) Sqeaking brakes / knocking noises under car !!
3) Radio will not stay tuned in and crackles all of the time.
4) Electric windows rattle and the glass vibrates against the metal runners.
5) The steering wobbles at 65 mph...I have had the wheels balanced six times, tyres changed and still no better...
If anyone out there is thinking of buying... (read more)

No help from Renault, despite having car for 1 month never even looked at it. Garage bill of over £1000 to replace engine with recon. Had no car since Sep 07 2007(3 months) and still not fixed. Do not buy Renault they are dangerous. I am warning you before it happens to you. Look at forums on Renault engines there are many many cases, VOSA surely know about this danger too, and still no recall to these cars. (read more)

Have owned my Renault Scenic 1.9DCi car for 3.5 years from new. Thoroughly satisfied, best car I've driven in 30 years of motoring experience. Very spacious family car, back seats may be removed to carry assortment of goods. Great acceleration with loads of power to spare.
The very few niggles experienced were always quickly corrected by the excellent staff at Renault agent Pocklingtons of Louth. Highly recommended family car. (read more)

The Renault Scenic is very powerful when running, very spacious and good visibilty unlike some mpv's with 2 thick posts at the front windscreen / side window area. Excellent for towing trailers apart from you have to make sure you don't forget the trailer is there as it is very powerful. Excellent on motorways driving at normal speeds giving excellent fuel consumption. Bit disappointed in the fact that it has been in garage 5+ times. Renault roof bars whistle quite a bit unlike old versions.... (read more)

My Renault Scenic is only 11 months old and is in the garage in Lincoln again. Engine cut out totally on overtaking and brakes always have been a sticky problem. Major electronic faults and, they said it was fixed, but we were not happy as "loss of faith" in it, as it nearly killed my whole family, they replaced a CPI or something. I was told that it shouldn't have happened in the first place and the CPI is not the underlying of the problem. Scary is an understatement. It's been in the... (read more)

This is s copy of a letter I sent to renault regarding the
Renault Scenic 1.9DCi People Carrier to which 12 months later I have yet to receive a response.
I am writing with regard to one of your Renault Scenics, which I took delivery of in September 2002.
Since taking delivery of the car I have been very disappointed with the service we have received from various Renault garages throughout the UK. Right from day one we had problems, and this has continued throughout our dealings with... (read more)
