Renault Megane hatchback (2008-2016): owner reviews

“In what is a very competitive class, the Renault Megane offers something slightly different to its competitors. It’s starting to feel its age, though.”

I bought this car three months ago as I have always owned Renaults in all I love it its smooth pulls very good up hill steering is spot on easy to park I keep reading that its meant to get over 50mpg on a run best I have had is around 38mpg (diesel) but all in all I love it has a full service book and is unblemished and for 200 pounds its a real bargain(apart from the mpg)

In general very satisfied.I Assumed after 1year of a brand new model being brought out, that renault had sorted out their poor reliability reputation and any teething problems and so far this has proved to be the case.

Unique styling, sporty gearbox and performance (for a diesel) with added diesel economy. Reasonably low running costs and servicing, especially after manufacturer warranty has expired. Comfortable, easy to drive with high safety rating. Only real niggle is the air con that needs re-gas every year. Oh and one more thing...changing a headlamp bulb is not for the faint hearted...lol

Stylish and very quiet. It is the cc model and the electric glass roof is fantastic. Fuel economy is as good as the 1.4 audi a2 i owned previously. The interior doesn't match the quality feel of german rivals but it was substantially less expensive to buy. All in all i'm very happy with the car.

Great 'drivers car' and no significant problems in over 3 years of ownership... Much improved over the clio i had previously, it seems that with each new generation of vehicles, renault manages to make substantial improvements in build quality and design.

Fantastic drivers car. Find i drive to sainsbury's 1 mile down the road and end up taking a 30 mile round trip just for fun. Car surpassed all expectations, turns heads like a ferrari, sounds great and will keep up with an m3 costing more than double with ease. Ordered the car after only seeing pictures, months before they went on sale in the uk and before any reviews, only going by renaultsport's reputation for hot hatches. Since then has won what car? Hot hatch of the year 2010 and now 2011 too. Happy days!

I like the styling of the car, i also think the 2.0 diesel engine in the megane is a peach, great performance combined with 45+ mpg, however there is not enough leg room in the back seats.
