I have had this car for over two years now and had no problems whatsoever. There is loads of room, comfy on long drives and averaging 47-50 mpg, I have done nearly 30,000 miles and only had to change two front tyres. I would recommend it to any one.
I have been looking for a Kangoo for the past year. As an artist it has everything I need - space, places to paint from and low running costs.
Every owner I spoke to loved their Kangoos. BEWARE if you are over 5 foot 10 though - the seats are very uncomfortable and only suitable if you are small.
The design of the vehicle is wonderful but it is useless if the seats cannot be adjusted. I'm looking for a new car.
1.9dCi 4X4 Trekka
Practical and very capable family car (van) but dont expect luxury or performance
I have the Trekka version returning nearly 40mpg in the first 6 months of ownership.
Loads of space and great access to carry lots of camping kit, tools, stuff. Very easy to keep clean with its basic interior inside.
Off road it's very capable as long as you dont try anything silly. Sure footed in the snow and ice too is useful
Parts can be dear if sourced from Renault dealership. I have replaced timing belt (£180) and drive bush (£300).
Recommend to anyone
Its my works van.
i abuse it and on the whole its held up pretty well, although i'm someone who doesn't ever expect machinery to perform miricles of permanent-smooth-silent-problem-free-running.
recently: it won't start properly. i'll have to warm up the coil 2 or 3 times to get the engine managment to "allow" me to start the engine. highly irritating i think you'll agree!
in addition to this reversing sensors bleak seat giving me back ache and finnaly i'm currently typing in pain!, in turning into my driveway, managed to trap my finger between the back of the steering wheel, and the front of the fingertip audio controls!!!!!!!
aside from this kango perfoms well on all aspects: not bad performance for what it is, (as i was saying about my outlook on engines) good MPG good lights practical holds road well, even with all the ton of gubbins refrigeration engineers require. not let me down yet (touch wood)
