I bought my Kangoo Van new in 2000, and it was a superb little van. I never had any trouble with it in over 100,000 miles and after I sold it the new owner abused it for 3 years before it finally died. My van was actually the 1.2 petrol version, and it was a real honey, so eager to push the van along despite it's small size. As the mileage went up it got better, being noticeably faster after 50,000 miles had gone under it's wheels. I only sold it because I fancied a new van after 8 years, to... (read more)

I love my Renault Kangoo! Y reg and still no major work been done. (It is the car not the van but still 1900cc which Renault should never have got rid of!)

If they still made the higher cc engine I would probably have bought another one! I usually take mine for servicing to a private garage as Renault charge the earth and it was a relief at the end of the warranty! (read more)

I have driven my 2000W Renault Kangoo 665D for over 130,000 miles, having bought it with 50k miles at auction.
So, in 180,000 miles, it has only required servicing and routine item replacement. It still has its original clutch, shockers and alternator! Think about that.
After frankly failing to find the Renault Service departments believable, I service my own Renault. The Full sevice can be correctly carried out in 45 minutes and costs about 40GBP to do. No, not 230GBP - 40GBP. Am I making... (read more)

I am going to try to claim against Renault UK - as a qualified mechanic I have completed all repairs to my Kangoo using Renault parts but this job has still cost me £1500 plus my labour & vehicle hire.
Has anyone else had gearbox problems at low mileage? (read more)

The Renault Kangoo van is 'W' plate ex British Gas vehicle, which make good second hand buys due to low mileage, being a higher spec model, and they have generally been looked after. The van came with the BG racking which was a big selling point for me.
On the bad side the engine is just too slow, if you can, get a newer HDi. Its also very noisy as it is working so hard, its not unusual for the speed to drop to sixty on the motorway with a slight incline or headwind.
Grip is acceptable... (read more)
