It would seem that all of us 'automatic' owners are whinging about the same things - an totally 'orrible 'orrible auto gearbox.
Renaults automatic transmittion is what other manufacturers call a 'semi-auto' or VVT box. You can select normal auto or select gears up/down (like a sports car paddle shift, but nowhere near as sophisticated).
The box is operated by computer softwear and not by the mechical/hydraulic means of the older more reliable autoboxes.
The gearbox is supposed to learn and... (read more)

Bought my Renault Scenic 2.0 Privilige from new and loved it from the minute I got in it. The leather interior and matching trim makes it a really nice car to be in.
