    My car

    The car is good. The dealer has been very poor - shameful - never ever again!

    My car

    This was the most unreliable car that I have ever owned.

    It leaked water from new and regularly failed to start for various reasons, mostly electronic although the starter failed once. The dealer never succeeded in keeping it on the road for more than a few weeks at a time.

    The rear tyres were completely bald after 12,000 miles.

    Finally, in desparation I sold it last autumn and lost £6000 in 18 months.

    My car

    A well equipped car for the money, with plenty of standard equipment.

    The engine is not quite powerful enough though, the 100 PS version is much better.

    Very good mpg, averaging 55 around town.

    Overall an enjoyable car to drive and own.

    My car

    Having owned the car for just over 6 months I have had only one fault. The passenger window would open when the double locks were applied.

    This is my second diesel car the first was a Peugeot 307 2.0 hdi, I find the Megane is a much better car all round.

    The engine I find powerful and having lots of torque especially for overtaking.
