* Ran 4000 miles. * No technical issues so far. * Bluetooth works as expected. * Maps are at least two years old and you cannot entirely trust them. Traffic warnings are useful though. * Got the car with repair kit and decided to buy a spare wheel. Renault can sell you a wheel but they don't see tires. There is no place where you can buy the 145/70 R17 spare tire it needs. * It's quieter than my C4 Grand Picasso '15 both in the city and motorway. On par or better than BMW 3-series. However, I never owned a BMW, only did a couple of test drives before decided to buy a Renault. * Engine is too powerful for the front wheel drive when it's wet. Wheels are spinning but the car doesn't go. * Touch screen is distracting. However, there are physical temperature knobs and volume control under the steering wheel. * No places for trash: all door bins are covered in flock. Had to put some bags for banana skins. * Self-dimming mirror is super useful. * Backup camera is useful. * Floor and trunk mats are of better quality than Citroen's. * LED lights are superb. * Useless parking sensors: they start to work too late and red sign appears too soon. When entering tight places it's always red warning even if you still have several inches. Citroen's parking sensors are more useful. * Despite 4Control system, turning cyrcle is big. * Heavy steering wheel. * Bose system is good for car. A bit bass-heavy by default but this can be changed in settings. There is no feeling that "boom" is coming from the trunk and that's good.

I'm really disappointed with this car. I thought Renault had sorted the build quality issues. In the six months of owning this car the rear view mirror falls off almost every month. Repaired by garage but it still falls off if you slam the door a little hard. The fuel flap cover has broken twice, the rear lights are poorly fitted and one lets water into the boot. The fuel economy is good and the performance is respectable for the little engine, but there are lots of annoying rattles and it eats bulbs. The DMF went after 50,000 miles which is a little early (most will do 70). Thankfully we've not had any of the DPF problems others have. It's a bit like owning a 1980's Rover. I'm constantly waiting for the next thing to go wrong. Come on Renault get your act together.

Fantastic looking car with a great amount of kit and a perfect size for our family. Unfortunately we were told that the car would average around 50mpg (combined). Despite staying in eco mode and adjusting our driving style we get around 28mpg. It's a real shame as we love the car!
