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 Full Review

Lovely spacious design that is let down by a lumpy auto gear box, poor reliability, and build quality issues. The Renault Scenic 2.0 Auto is a really big car inside for a small footprint on the road.

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.

Take off with the 2.0 is great (felt the 1.6 was a little "lacking" during a test drive) with a smooth gear change and nice purr whilst driving around… Read Full Review
