“shocking of renault!”

Written on: 06/03/2014 by jennylav (1 review written)

would never recommend this car, all electric windows have now gone, quote £400 each window by Renault garage! Renault are aware of the design fault and as a good will gesture!! offer you a percentage paid by them, NOT GOOD ENOUGH RENAULT!!!!! they are well aware of this fault in these cars so they should do the right thing I pay for the whole thing to be fixed, if it was the brakes or something the cars would be recalled and fixed for free, this should be the same ,i cant believe they actually… Read Full Review

“2005 1.9 Grand Scenic Priv.. - DON'T BUY ONE!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 03/03/2013

I've owned this car for 2.5 years and paid £5500 for it but I can honestly say that this is the worst car I've ever bought and I will not be buying another Renualt ever. I've been to the main dealer 7 times as windows keep dropping and each time parts were changed and the problems fixed (bearing in mind there are only 4 openable windows on the car!!). Driving at night on the M5 and the dashboard went out, meaning I didn't know what speed I was travelling at, how much fuel was left etc. -… Read Full Review

“sh~t car”

Written on: 15/12/2012 by gaudonville (1 review written)

All the windows broke and was recalled for seat belt problems, engine computer went, all of theses were fixed under warranty and extended warranty. then turbo went which caused damager to engine, so a recon engine and new turbo were fitted by Renault garage along with a new fly wheel and clutch. €5500. Soon after a part that connects front wheel to steering fell of onto the road this was due to threads being reamed of by Renault garage. I repaired this my self as did not want to to take it… Read Full Review

“Not a problem so far”

Written on: 11/02/2012 by KenQuinn (1 review written)

Bought my 2001 1.9 DCi a year ago, and so far I've encountered none of the problems that people write about on various internet forums. Mine was a 1 lady owner car, ( I rang her to confirm it.) with full service history, and it came with 108k miles on the clock. I've just passed the 119k miles mark, and it's just had a minor service to keep the book up to date, and it's been so good at the time of writing. It regularly returns 45mpg, and I've had it up to 52mpg when driving sensibly. With the… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2011

I have a 2007 1.9 diesel Grande Scenic bought through Motor Provider at a big discount four years ago. It is a fantastic family car with a great view out for the kids when they were little and storage areas for everything. Now the kids are older there is huge space for an entire drum kit and other musical parapheralia. Great performance from the big diesel and average of about 45 mgp on a long run and about 38mpg on the school run. Light bulbs occasionally fail and the radio has lost the… Read Full Review

“Scenic 1.9 DCI,2004 ”

Written on: 19/01/2011

Scenic 1.9 DCI,2004
The previous review is uncannily similar to my experience - bought second hand and 1 month after the warranty ran out the dashboard went, then the power setting on the fan (needs the dash out again) and now we have just had a new turbo fitted but the thing keeps smoking when accelerating (not idle or revving on standstill) - spent a grand trying to fix and still no clues/solution. We loved the car to start with but it has proved a costly mistake in the end as aside from… Read Full Review

“There appears to be 2 known faults :- ”

Written on: 17/08/2009 by titanic1966 (2 reviews written)

There appears to be 2 known faults :-
1.top engine mounting gives a droning vibration at about 3-4 thousand revs before changing gear. This is due to the rubber in the old engine mounting going hard, passing vibration through bodywork. The new mounting has fins and additional bits to stop this problem.

2. The resister pack for the heater fan on both my 53 and 54 plate scenics both went wrong due to a design fault. There is a replacement pack with cabling mod to fix the problem which Renault… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2009

The Renault Scenic 1.9DCi offers comfort, ideal travel car, gas/oil consuming very moderate (6 lit / 100 km in city). I even travelled from the south of France to home with a gasoil consume of 4,9 lit / 100 km ! With 4 persons and a lot of package, this car is very spaceful. With 126.000 km on the counter within 8 years, I had no problem with this cat that is worth a mention (perhaps a halogen lamp and a little exhaust pipe connection) I would recommend this car to everybody, but you have… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2008 by angusmcsporran (1 review written)

We changed from a Focus C-Max Ghia 2 litre turbo diesel for the 1.9 DCi Grand Scenic Dynamique when we had another child. Although the car had a lot of extra space, it has proved worse in almost every other respect. Renault customer service is worse even than Peugeot, which I thought was impossible. Very poor value for money. A great shame as this car had potentially so much going for it - but the build quality and customer service is just dire… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/08/2008

I would never buy a Renault again. I have had nothing but trouble with this car, in fact during the year that I have owned it, the garage has probably had it more than me. The pistons went on it which cost 1200 to replace and now the turbo has gone and the whole engine now has to be replaced with a recon which is going to cost 1500. I will be glad to see the back of it… Read Full Review
