I wanted a convertible that was not too costly and was cost effective to run. I had a sports car before but accepted that i would sacrifice performance for comfort (i'm late 60's)with a coupe/cabriolet. The car has broadly met my expectations and has proved reliable.

Diesel isn't cheap. But for my mileage, it's better in the long run than petrol. Also, there's an expensive service due incl. new pads & discs.

Review
Very good value second hand car. I got the car in the Cayenne pepper orange which looks great, with the driving pleasure to match. You also get all the specs you can hope for in a modern car for not a lot of money (SatNav which works well, bluetooth which I found easy to setup didn't even look at the instructions, remote key card unlocks and locks the car when you walk towards/away from the car and keyless start). I initially had my eyes on something like a BMW 1 series or a golf but for the same money I can get a much newer Megane coupe with much better specs and it looks better! I tested all three vehicles mentioned above and the megane definitely felt the most involved as it should being the only car I tested which is being marketed as a coupe. Although there are only 3 doors I still found the car very practical with a massive boot and fold down rear seats, I didn't find the boot shape to be awkward at all unlike some reviews suggested. I mostly drive around London with longer weekend trips to see my girlfriend who works in Sussex. The city manages about 49 mpg in the city and ticks up considerably when I hit the motorway. Although I have the smallest engine available (I think), the car will easily hit motorway speeds quickly. All in all, very happy with my car and would definitely recommend to my friends.

The megane coupe is a good, second hand value pocket rocket for those wanting a bit of fun.Reasonable Mpg with the 2 litre-but not urban with the unfair price of fuel at the moment.Can Be a hard ride with the low suspension.I Would reccomend the same care but with a smaller engine.

Convertible aspect of car is great, comfortable car but creaks in trim and heavy handling sometimes takes shine off ownership. I feel though the technically advanced roof (with panoramic window) is a real plus for this model and brand.

Review
Beautiful looking car from every angle. 1.5 diesel (90bhp) low on power but reasonable on fuel. Remap has given it more pulling power without affecting mpg surprisingly. Would probably avoid the 90bhp and go for the 110 as that is what this is producing now. Expression model is basic but is relatively cheap to buy, very cheap to run. Build quality is good, the odd rattle from the door cards but nothing more. Interior seems hard wearing. Easy to get in the back but long doors make it awkward in tight parking spaces. Large boot swallows most things but odd shaped hatch makes larger objects tricky to fit in.
Reliability

5 out of 5

I do 24,000 miles a year and have had no problems at all with the Megane as of yet, other than an injector light coming on due to remap, self inflicted problem that wouldn't have arisen without the remap.
Performance

3 out of 5

Performance isn't great from the 90bhp as to be expected but is adequate. Having remapped mine to around 110bhp it is much better on acceleration and keeps up with motorway traffic easily.
Running Cost

5 out of 5

Really cheap to run, 50 to 60 mpg on the motorway not a problem but difficult to get near manufacturers top line figures. £20 a year to tax.

Well styled and paractical convertible. Vey good diesel engine, well appointed interior and spec. No desire to change after 3 years ownership.

Sublime handling, staggering grip levels, hugely entertaining to drive. Looks fantastic, with considerably improved build quality inside the cabin too. Epic

For performance the car is great. handles really well, and it is not that expensive to insure. Not so good for putting car seat in, driving position could be better, and the gear changes could be smoother. Overall if you want a cheap nippy car that handles well i dont think you could go wrong.

I love the car to bits but the renault dealer network and customer service have continually let me down. The car is now coming up to 3 years old with 2 breakdowns just before christmas with the repairs covered by warranty but i'm also left with a bill for over £1000.00 which includes myself having to pay for suspension checks again to prove there is a problem with the rear beam and front suspension. The two dealers near me have told me there are no problems with the suspension for the last 18 months until i find out they do not have the capability to check the settings!! Etc etc and renault want me to pay £800 for a years extended warranty for "my" peace of mind!!!

Fantastic value for money with this car. Has everything you could possibly need such as bluetooth, mp3, heated seats, sat nav, auto headlights and wipers etc. Engine is pretty good too, especially for a 1.5. I usually achieve between 50-53 mpg, despite the trip computer stating around 60 mpg. Pulls well for the engine size, however I had mine remapped for extra performance and it is now faster than the 1.9dci and can almost keep up with my dad's 2.2 Honda Civic Type S. I have only had one issue with the car which I have now, and that is juddering around 1500 rpm in higher gears, however I have been told this could be my flywheel in which case could be my fault as the extra power from the remap may have caused this. Other than that I've had no problems. Only needs to be serviced every 18,000 miles too so is a cheap car to run which makes it fantastic value for money.
Reliability

5 out of 5

Only have the juddering issue at 1500 rpm which may be caused by me getting the car remapped. Other than that I've been very impressed.
Performance
Pulls well as standard however I had a performance remap for +30 bhp and it is great for a 1.5. Almost as fast as my dad's 2.2 Honda Civic Type S and is faster than the 1.9 dci. Handling is great too, can really throw it into corners and it will still hold on. The seats could be more supportive however mine isn't a sporty model which is why they aren't. Is also pretty comfortable over bumps.
Running Cost
I do at least 70% motorway driving so would expect a little more than 51 ish mpg from a 1.5 diesel, however I do accelerate harder than most so it's not too bad. Insurance isn't exactly cheap for me at £2000 however I'm only 18 so that's to be expected.

I said I will never buy a French made car but here I am. Was bowled over by the test drive I had in GT line. Car drives beautifully for such a small engine. Having a turbo really helps to get things moving really quickly. Car easy to stall though. And air-con not the easiest to figure out otherwise this is the best car I have ever owned.

no major work done - a little welding to wheel arches last year, slight coolant leak solved with coolant treatment, rear shock absorber failed 2 years ago which was the first time RAC called out, otherwise just tyres, exhaust, wheel bearings, cam belt etc

road tax over Ł200 now, Ł5 for headlight this year - lights remarkably good - some will be 16 years old. Not the most fuel efficient engine but it is rated at 1500 bhp and still goes quite well. Leather seats still very comfortable.
