Good fuel consumption. Good performance. Good take off. It holds very well in heels and never complaints. After driving to Limpopo and the East coast in one week, I'm impressed… Read Full Review

I replaced my Renault Clio for a renault megane privilege (03 reg) just over two weeks now, it's a really comfortable car with a very smart interior and got a good deal on part exchange for it. In just that short time it has been back to the garage twice now and is again booked in for two days time, first fault was a fume filter, the second was paintwork (albeit not a mechanical fault) and it is now in for the third time because it "kangaroos" occasionally when accelerating in first gear! Not… Read Full Review

Mechanically, the Renault Megane is very good, interior and exterior very good, electric protections very good. Though I find electric modules and dignoses are complicated and the software and interface are expensive to buy comparing with other European models… Read Full Review

Ive had my Renault Megane 1.6 Privilege (And lets face it....it isnt one) for 14 months. In that time, my costs for maintenance (excluding monthly repayments and fuel) have worked out at around 200 per month! Ive had to have a new gearbox, two new timing belts - two replacements of ignition coil sets plus numerous other items - and I still need to get the aircon fixed because the compressor has failed. How, I am ever going to get rid of this burden - I really dont know - I could never sell it… Read Full Review

2003 reg, 20k Renault Megane 1.6 Privilege bought second hand. I've had the car 6 months and it's been into the garage 5 or 6 times already (thankfully I was flogged a 3 year extended warranty that's already paid for itself - when I bought the car!): - ignition coils replaced; electric window replaced, dephaser and timing belt replaced. Ongoing issue with it not starting that Renault and their 'super' diagnostic computer still cant locate - despite 3 attempts and the advice from AA stating in black… Read Full Review

Our Renault Megane 1.6 Privilege was 1 month out of it's 2 year warranty when the auto gearbox packed up. Sintered metal hydraulic taper rings broke up. Cost just over $3000 to rectify. Next went the a/c filter, then the rear shock absorber.
This vehicle was purched 2nd. hand @ 16000Kms. 18 months old and had a habit of cutting out for no apparent reason. This fault has been with me since purchase. The local garage are aware of this problem but won't acknowledge it .
Getting desperate… Read Full Review

Traded my 2003 Scenic 1.4 in for the new 2004 Megane II 1.6 Privilege family car. In retrospect, I miss the Scenic's versatility which is the benchmark in the MPV industry. The Megane offers a totally different drive with the emphasis on style, safety and super smooth driving. It offers more leg, head and boot space than any car in the C class marketed in South Africa. VW, Opel and Ford - eat your heart out: come learn how to produce a practical, safe vehicle that oozes style. I'm very glad… Read Full Review
