katman Posted 27, June 2006 Report Share Posted 27, June 2006 G'day members! - just bought a Clio Sport Cup - Racing Blue - from the Renault Dealers in Richmond Vic - absolute legends!! I have loved these babies since the early 2000 intro when they won Bang for you buck - have been reading reviews ever since - these sukcers simply eat up everything in their category Family reasons prevented me from buying earlier - we needed a family car - still have it - 2001 Verada - Well - my impressions - the car is an absolute hoot to drive - goes bloody yhard, handles, stop even better!! Reliability issues - I must admit they are not screwed together anywhere near as well as the verada - have had the Mitsu for 4 yrs and is still completely rattle free - the Clio has a few rattles, esp from the rear speakers, comes and goes - had the classic 'whistle' problem - it has just over 4000klm on the clock - took it back to the dealer late Friday night - they immediately threw on the analysier, found a few problems, cold start sesnor, and the fuel pump was faulty - they gave me aloan car - Monday it was up and running - the Richmond Dealers are highly recommended - Have been reading articles from some clown driving an S3 - bagging the reliability of the Renault - let me say ALL manufacturers have their issues - my mate bought a new Territory - 3 weeks later his wife was driving it and the drivers side electric window caught on fire!!! To the bloke who owns the S3 - my brother is a service tech - let me assure you Audis have HUGE problems - my advice is STAY AWAY from non warranty Audi's!!! - eg $7k for a new computer, very common on 3-4 yr old cars - $7-10k for transmission - lets just say his workshop is flat out all the time - I considered second hand Audi's - my brother WOULD NOT allow me to do it - Amyway - cheers and hope to join a cruise day in the future.
