All round lovely car, comfortable for all 7 passengers. Lots of extras on the car, £30 a year road tax, great on fuel. So far we are not disappointed at all! Our only disappointment so far is the size of the tiny glovebox

Jiggly ride on city road surfaces, sluggish autobox downshift in Eco mode for overtaking spurts, some rattles and mirror folding problems. Front anti-roll bar links gone at 7000 miles (common on Renaults) Computer is fiddly with poor menus (so same as all others). Economical, nice panoramic roof, heating and radio excellent, generally quiet and comfortable, handles OK. Roomy boot, but not especially spacious otherwise. (Again, same as rivals) Creeps and lurches a bit at low speed, difficult to place and park due to visibility. Looks great.

Be aware that if you have a problem with the automatic gearbox, i.e. does not change smoothly or there's a warning light on . This is a fault that will cost a lot of money if the garage says needs a new wiring loom. The cost is £650 just for the loom then labour is £130 an hour. You may be better off putting in part exchange with them.
