    Well... My honest opinion is they are plastic pigs. They will be garenteed to have electrical faults and the gearboxes last about 2 seconds of spirited driving... They don't have any leg room and you'd die if you hit a 4x4.

    Test drove one and picked an Astra Coupe Turbo over it.

    Plus points:

    Negative points:

    FRENCH
    Small
    Cheap
    Bits fall off
    Not as fast as everyone makes out
    Horrible interior
    Steering wheel is too big
    Dont look anything special

    Fun cars to drive and nippy, but I wouldn't go near one.

    Renaults and electrical faults go together hand in hand, bits fall off them, very cramped inside, steering wheel is like something out of a bus.

    Similar to my old Saxo VTR, great fun but I'll never have another french car.
