Mine had just done 60,000 miles. Window regulators failed, Renault quote £350 per door and there is a very high failure rate. Dash completely failed and had to be replaced, again common fault but not good when you want to sell the car. If your clutch goes be prepared to pay £1,200 for replacement clutch and flywheel at independent garage (Renault quoted £3500)! Remote locking no longer works. Poor waterproofing so water gets into doors and messes with electric. Intercooler also... (read more)

Even if it's cheap, even if it looks good, even if your friend has it and likes it. If you feel you start warming up towards it, run for the hills and don't come back until you've walked it off. I've owned this car and yet my mechanic had it for longer at his place than I did. Car doesn't start and doesn't drive and when it does lights start flashing, doors are locking and unlocking themselves, wipers come on and off all that when you drive 50 miles per hour in heavy traffic. That is worse... (read more)

Bought a Grand Scenic 1.6 VVT because it looked good car for a growing family. Regret it totally now! Worst car I've ever owned and definitely worst car ever driven. Horribly under powered, massive problem which causes it to stall while pulling away when the engine is cold (Renault aware but refuse to admit it is a dangerous fault!) try pulling out of a busy junction and the engine stalls dangerous in my book! Now the dash board flashes and resets (but it's ok BBC watchdog got then to sort... (read more)

I got the 2004 dynamique 1.5 dci 80bhp. Owned for 4 years. Amazing economy, great family car. Had the common electrical faults heater blower and elec windows. Have recently found out that windows can be repaired under warranty by Renault if car is under 7 yes old & under 100,000 miles. This is a £250-£300 job & Renault ask for a customer contribution of about £60. Ring a few dealers if one pleads ignorance to this as it's not been well publicised by them. My motor booked in for this repair.... (read more)

Had our Scenic for about 8 years. Aside from regular coil issues it has done 108k now and nothing major has gone wrong. It will certainly not light up your life but for a growing family including holidays in France Ireland etc I cannot fault it.
It is a good basic family car that copes with all we have thrown at it. We will likely change it soon as we may be pushing the boundaries a little but would certainly consider another. (read more)

I bought my Renault Megan Scenic not quite two years ago from Carcraft. Within a month the coils went. I have had nothing but bad luck with this vehicle. The stering lock went and even though under 5 year warranty, NAC did not want to know as they said the Warranty did not cover. I have also had a new clutch, breaks redone, and while comming back on our Christmas break the exhaust has packed up, most likely the catty.
I would not reccommend this car to anyone. (read more)

I have a 55 plate Renault Scenic Dynamique 1.6 16v, from 12 mths old (but only had 11 miles on the clock). All four coils have had to be replaced, my brakes are atrocious, they lock at nothing. My electrics have just gone. On arriving at work on a wet day the rear window decided to go down as I locked the car - yeah makes sense to me too. Would not go back up. Had it in and the whole electrics, including door locking is up the spout. For a car I have had 2 and a half years from new... (read more)

Plenty of leg room both in the front and rear.
Rear seats slide forward for several inches additional boot space.
Excellent boot space for large loads as the rear seats fold so far forward.
Under seat and under floor carpet storage compartments are good for small items.
Great to drive the automatic version, particularly with the handbrake releasing automatically when you press the accelerator.
I probably should have looked for a diesel version. (read more)

If i were to buy this vehicle again I would get it in a 1.8 or 2.0 litre engine, as I think there's not enough power with the climate control on when overtaking or going uphill. (read more)

We love our 03 1.5 dci (82) Renault Scenic ll. Drives great, loads of room, low at the back fo loading/unloading. With one exception, the dash board sometimes, can be twice daily or only once a week will reset all the trip settings to 0, also the clock to 0.00. The clock being the biggest pain. All the warning lights come on for about 2 seconds then 0.00. The fuel consumption is awesome 62 mpg, and very easy on tyre wear. (read more)

The number if faults I have had with my 53 Plate Renault Scenic have been terrible. I had the older shape Scenic with no problems before upgrading. The front nearside window mechanism failed costing £200 to replace. I had a loud crunching noise when starting the car. This turned out to be a Defaser Pulley costing an arm and a leg to fix. Now the dashboard has failed and needs replacing. All these faults seem to be inherrent to the car after speaking to other people who drive this car.... (read more)

Ignition coils went twice and were replaced due to a fault in the manufacturing of the coils.
Renault replaced 1st set free of charge under warrenty.
The second set out of warrenty was also replaced free after it was found out that it was the coils problem. Good car but watch out for those coils and if you have problems contact Renault direct. (read more)

This is the third generation of the car that invented the "Mini MPV" concept, and they still haven't sorted everything out. It's a good idea, but the execution is not as good as a decent estate car. If you really need 7 seats, then you're stuffed. Otherwise, don't bother. (read more)

This is my second Scenic. Found it hard to adjust to not having a handbrake or key ignition. Kids love it as it has sun blinds built in the back. Only problem I have had so far is I was driving this morning and the car began to vibrate, looked at the display and warning light was flashing and message said to check emissions. Took it to the a Renault garage straight away as was advised not to drive the car. They looked at it and told me that one of the coils had gone but they replaced all... (read more)

This is the plus version. I bought my Renault Scenic Dynamique 1.6 16v from brand new. Comfortable drive, nice driving position, climate control is good, but in really hot weather ( which we seem to get a great deal of now) cannot cope with keeping the cab really cool. Fairly good on fuel consumption when all aspects of the engine are running well. Some nice features and storage for a small family. Twin sunroofs but not used that often due to climate control on the air con. Have had to... (read more)

This is our third Scenic and each one has improved on the one before. The fact that the computer is taking over more and more functions is a mixed blessing, especially the handbrake. Although my wife adapted quickly it's taken me longer as my brain keeps telling me it is down below on the left and I have to swap hands on the wheel to activate it on the dashboard to the right! As a tall person I've found the seat adjustment a little more tricky than previously(if I was not regularly... (read more)

We have been really happy with the Scenic as an overall experience and love the height available and practicality. However, the technical problems with the coil have overshadowed our pleasure of the vehicle and could do with more horse-power, especially on hills and over-taking. (read more)

I have been really impressed with the Renault Scenic Dynamique 1.6 16v's standard - excellent visibility, stablity and saftey. The only issue is the engine - the 1.6 is just about ok as a run-about but is pushed hard at motorway speeds and needs a 6th gear. I'd go for the derv if I had the chance again - goodness knows what the 1.4 is like in terms of power! My Scenic also let water in from the underneath of the car but was fixed by the dealer - still a bit of a worry on a new car. (read more)
