“Back to the French firm!”

Written on: 05/11/2011

I've always had Renault cars with an occasional diversion to vauxhall, fiat, peogeot and Toyota. Bought this megane when I changed jobs and had to hand back a lovely laguna coupe. This little car has 100k on the clock and goes really well. Returns 45 mpg and feels safe and secure on the road with a nice firm ride and confidence inspiring in the twisty bits. The seats are extremely comfortable and there is just enough space for my kids and all the stuff that they accumulate!. The 1.6 engine is… Read Full Review

“I purchased a 1997 Megane 1.6RT Sport only because it...”

Written on: 27/02/2008 by Mosely (1 review written)

I purchased a 1997 Megane 1.6RT Sport only because it was going cheap and had 12 months MOT. Something to get me to work and back. When I got it it was a horrible tatty old thing. Gave it good old wash, hoover and it looks great. Apart from the odd dent and scratch its not too bad at all. What impressed me the most is the drive. I've owned a fare few cars and this seems to top the lot in terms of power and excellent fuel economy . The drive is surprisingly pleasant for a Renault. I haven't had… Read Full Review

“Very quick for engine size, plenty of room in hatch...”

Written on: 05/07/2007 by old git (1 review written)

Very quick for engine size, plenty of room in hatch for dogs wine etc. Regularly went to France and back with 30x6 bottle cases with rear seats down, cruises all day on Autobahn at 100-110 mph and ours is automatic. Quite economical too, not unusual to get 40 plus on a run without hanging about. I would not knock the Renault that I have owned. I've had no issues at all. But time to move on to a Rover 75 estate now. Very pleased with owning a Megane, my wife didn't want to part with it, but… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/11/2005 by skeadugenga (1 review written)

I've loved owning the Renault Megane 1.6 RT Sport, it has good acceleration, looks great, handles well and has a great deal of cabin and boot space. The immobiliser however, drives me crazy. And Renault have screwed me over keys - both went within 6 weeks of each other and replacing them is 100 pounds a time. As you can't switch off the immobiliser without them, you're obliged to pay… Read Full Review

Giantelectric's Response to 216591_skeadugenga's Review

Written on: 12/07/2006

We also had problems with our RT keys and the immobiliser, it cost us £70 for a replacement. Now the tdc chip is acting up and causing similar problems. A large majority of Renault models exhibit the same problems and are becoming notorious for it. Also, my relation owns a 'scenic' which' s doing exactly the same thing. Renault forums everywhere are rife with posts about immobiliser shorts. A shame because the cars performance is okay. Why does everything have to be computerized :-(

“Having owned my 1.6 16v Renault Megane RT Sport Alize...”

Written on: 08/10/2003 by Jon Rew (1 review written)

Having owned my 1.6 16v Renault Megane RT Sport Alize for 6 months now, I can honestly say that it still puts a smile on my face. I get between 38 and 45mpg and still get to do 0-60 in under 10secs. the ride is very comfortable, the handling is responsive, and the car is very well specced. My only criticisms are that the handling does feel a little vague and the cabin noise is fairly high at speeds over 75mph (120kph). the gear ratios could have been a little better spread as well, as you feel… Read Full Review

The Renault Megane 1.6 RT Sport is quite a good all round performer with a nice well designed interior, the engine is willing and the brakes are very powerful, my only critisism is a choppy ride… Read Full Review
