Letter: Forget the survey, I still love my Renault
Hello — I enjoy the Motoring page in the Sunday Independent.
Last Sunday (February 14) there was news of a survey from a car insurer in which Renault fared badly.
I have no connection whatsoever with the motor trade. Now a pensioner, and still working, I have had many cars over the years.
I started with Chrysler (Avenger), then to various Renaults, then to Volvo and finally, in 2011 back to Renault. A wise choice.
I purchased a new Grand Megane DCI. I consider this to be an outstanding car.
It is extremely well built, very solid and with no rattles of any sort. The engine and gearbox are a joy, and it has never let me down.
The only problem I encountered was replacing a headlight bulb.
While I could complain about small things in the interior, I think my Renault is a truly outstanding car. Therefore, I can’t understand the result of the survey.
Of course, cars are a bit like restaurants. Just one bad experience can do a lot of damage.
Anyway, I am extremely pleased with my Grand Megane, and would happily trade in for another.
