“Electronics far to be relieble”

Written on: 29/03/2014 by breslla (1 review written)

This economic engine has a electronic box with no clear diagnostics about the engine part with fault. It is very difficult to found waht is wrong with the engine. Two years ago will take 1 month to identify the problem and to visit three garages… Read Full Review

I wish id seen this review before ..brought my 03 renault clio..every month it goes into garage for repairs paid £1000 in june 2013 second hand thinking i was getting a good deal as its my first car and ever since with only 54,000 miles on the clock ive paid out £1,300 on repairs..oh and ive just noticed today the sunroof is leaking and the front suspension on the passenger side is going too..so all and all im off to scrap it and save for a better car..renault should be shut down for the cars they make!

Written on: 06/01/2011

Fantastic car. Bought it brand new in 2004 when I had just passed my test and have had no problems at all with it. Virtually no repair bills, decent fuel consumption, and great looking car. Still functions in terrible snow, with slight difficulty getting uphill. All in all, could not recommend this car enough. Test drove the new model recently and was disappointed with the lightness and insecure feeling of the car. Much prefer the older, sturdier model. Cannot go wrong… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2010

Excellent car. I have the 2005 1.2 Extreme 3dr version. Steering is very light and reliability is EXCELLENT! SO confortable and everything easy to reach. GREAT standard stereo. Remote C/L and all electric work great. Great economy and the display modes (MPG, Avg Speed, Dist Left, fuel used, etc) are a great help. Only minor problem a 5 door may have been more useful as all my mates now want to just 'go for a drive' in it. Great… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2010

Bought for £4,000 a total steal, this little gem has constantly performed on all terrains, in all weather and even with my 17 year old brother raping the engine. Still perfectly running and always reliable. The only downsize I could even consider when thinking about the Renault Clio Extreme is perhaps the clunky gear box, which as we all know is normally sorted after a good service or a bit of tuning. Easily one of the best small cars on the road and not only would I recommend it to anyone who… Read Full Review

“Excellent car so far! Have had no performance issues...”

Written on: 21/07/2009

Excellent car so far! Have had no performance issues so far. Acceleration is very good despite it being slightly heavier than other cars in its class such as the Peugeot 106 and the handling is great to. The brakes are very good and feel very responsive on the peddle, as is the throttle peddle. Fuel consumption is excellent which is useful as I'm only 17. I personally love the look of my car despite the interior having a 'cheapish' plastic look, still looks very nice though.
Only downside of… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2009

I have just recently gone to view a renault clio 3 extreme 04 plate for sale, i test drove it and it was great. The car was very responsive to acceleration and deceleration, although i do not own this car as of yet i have high hopes for it, and it looks good aswell.

Bad points: when you are travelling over rough ground e.g. gravel, the sun roof does rattle slightly however this does not occur on normal roads… Read Full Review

Very unreliable!
Everything on this car went wrong after a while. there were problems after problems. i spent altogether trying to fix the car, around £2000, at the end the car just became even worse,and would go into limp home mode every 5 mins. i thought the problem was lambda sensor. i changed it and it did nothing. eventually i sent it to a friend to have a close look only to find the ECU had gone!… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/12/2008

Almost everything about this car is superb, decent acceleration and speed for a 1.2 and will keep up with most others despite being heavier, very safe for passengers, comes with a huuuge amount of mod-cons for its price i.e. climate control, electric wing mirrors, rain sensitive windscreen wipers etc. and has a beautifully layed out and designed interior (in my opinion) I find it a pleasure to drive… Read Full Review

Problems every 2 weeks, fire damage to electric mirror switch, CD players keep breaking, misfires, backfires, cuts out, knocks and rattles, water leak from sunroof, wheel bearings and rough idling all went wrong in 1st year of ownership. It is the worst car I have ever owned and it will be the last due to poor dealership not fixing car properly. I'm definitely going back to a Ford!… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/03/2006 by DANIELLE5732 (1 review written)

I have only had my Renault Clio 1.2 16V Extreme 2 for 3 weeks, but I was really lucky to get a 53 reg for £4495.00 from Reg Vardy in Harrogate (they have loads). The bonus was it already had Lexus lights on the rear, and brand new alloy wheels!! This is my 3rd car, and will be mine for a long time, so I wanted something I wouldn't grow tired of, and this is the one!!

The fuel consumption is excellent! The drive is excellent, and the interior (if you get one like mine) is stunning! I have a… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2005 by b98223 (10 reviews written)

If you are a young driver, who has just saved up enough for your first car, the Renault Clio 1.2 16V Extreme 2 is the one for you. Because:
1. You will save money on petrol, 50MPG is almost as good as many diesels
2. Cheap to insure, go to Tesco, I paid £1500 a year, it seems a lot but for a new driver that is the cheapest on the market
3. All your mates will want one, they look superb (especially in Metallic Black)
4. Extras as standard, power steering, sunroof, electric windows, sports seats… Read Full Review
