    Any one owns Renault Magene 2010?

    I am looking to buy a Renault Magene 2010 1.5 Diesel Dynamique. Anyone owns same car, is it any good? Any major issues?

    Looking for your valuable reviews. Thanks in advance.

    I had 59 plate trade it in at 110k last year good car only issue I had was a clogged filter. decent drive and decent car. I don't even like how they look but it was comfy and got it at good price.. if it's the imusic version I think that has Bluetooth which is a great add on for this car.

    i have 2009 1.5 diesel and never had any problems although its still only done 24000 miles so haven't driven it a lot for the age

    Avoid French cars. Crap, unreliable... ****

    I've got a 65 plate one and the R-Link system is horrendous. it drives nicely and is comfortable enough, but the entertainment and sat nav system is awful, it's been shoehorned in and it shows

    I'd guess a '10 car has the TomTom system though, which is very good.

    They are great till they go wrong, Renault spares system is a nightmare; I have had parts they say dont exist, yet I am holding the part - with Renault badges and part numbers stamped on it, right in front of them.

    They also have a habit of using non standard parts, each factory that makes a model, will make it slightly differently, 7 factories = 7 different exhaust layouts; seriously!!

    If you want a cheap, reliable car, buy a Hyundai or a Kia; almost Japanese build quality for "Made in Hong Kong" money.

    Heaps of scrap. Avoid like the plaque.

    People complain about 110hp version being underpowered, so if you are looking at 90hp one I would maybe test drive and make sure you are OK with it

    Dealers don't call them Renault migraine's for nothing...lol.

    Thank you all for valuable comments.

    Garbage worse than the old ones. Engines are semi reliable to be fair but everything else falls to bits. Electric window runners fall off constantly which is a renault problem for over ten years so surely they should of fixed by now

    Each front wiper is controlled by a separate motor for some unknown reason which are prone to failure and 200 each. Just a garbage car

    Water hose at the back of the engine often splits. You need to drop the engine to replace it....total pain and about £500 if you are lucky and no other damage done.
