Mintee Posted 20, December 2020 Report Share Posted 20, December 2020 Hello hello I'm probably going to head down and check out a Megane RS tomorrow and just have a couple of questions that I'm hoping the Renault community can help me out with. A little about me, I guess. I'm 28, and looking for a new daily. I've gone from a 2013 MK 7 Golf TDI > 2015 MK 7 Golf GTI (Manual) > 2018 MK 7.5 Golf GTI In manual. I'm looking for a car that has the 'go' but that I can deal with daily. My biggest gripe with my golfs was 1) Reliability 2) Creaks and rattles, but at the same time my loves were 1) Interior fit and finish 2) Tech and features. Looking at the Megane I think id be looking at a RS Sport with the EDC (I'm a little over the manuals). I don't plan to put the car on track at all. But I have a couple of concerns. 1) My golf had a Electronic Slip Diff, and I regret not going for a mechanical one. It just couldn't keep it down to the front wheels. I'm concerned though that the Cup version has too harsh of a ride. Thoughts? 2) Infotainment, Reviews say its clunky, slow and just... terrible to deal with, is it really THAT bad? 3) I personally don't like buying cars LATE in a model lifecycle, I know that the current shape Megane came out in 2016, but the RS came in 2018. I did some googling and cant seem to find any info on a new model coming anytime soon, would this be correct? 3a) There is some details of a facelift though, improving the drivers info display, 'minor cosmetic changes', and Lane Departure no longer just a 'warning' and becoming an 'assist', Has this occurred in Australia, or does anyone have any info on this? or Does Anyone have any info on the key differences between a MY19 (currently on 'sale', MY20, and upcoming MY21?) 4) How are Renaults in terms of reliability, and the dealer network? Although my VW had its problems, There was pretty much no questions asked in looking into it, and sorting my issues out, parts came pretty quick too. Any other info would be appreciated Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
