NEVER buy this car! I owned one for 6 months and i will NEVER buy a Renault again! Or ANY French car for that matter. The price was good, but every thing else about it was below par. Here are a few of the problems I experienced with the Renault Mégane II: 1) Faulty clutch which resulted in jerky starts. 3) Fowl-smelling sir conditioning. 3) Vibrations galore. 4) Electrical problems (faulty lights). 5) Rattling noise from the speakers. 6) Squealing brakes. 7) Engine flat spot when accelerating and overturning. 8) Water ingress under the rubber mat in the driver's side. Clunky engine with a thudding sound every time I let go of the gas pedal. A truly HORRIBLE car! Please, for your own sanity's sake, NEVER never this!!!!! Get a German or Japanese car and you will be a whole lot happier. (I now drive a perky little Suzuki.)
If you need a love/hate relationship then the Renault Megane's the car you're looking for.
I love the looks, angles and curves, but they say it's down below that matters most and they're not joking!
I bought this car on 1st March 2008. I loved it, black 3dr, 17'' alloys and tinted windows. It looks slick, and for the price you pay for a 2nd hand Megane you get a hell of a lot of mod cons, if they choose to work that is.
So, two weeks ago, (two months after purchase) I'm driving down the motorway at speed and suddenly acceleration cuts out completely, trip computer indicates there's injection failure, and the car subsequently dies! Later diagnosed with faulty fuel pump which I managed to get down to £410 (all labour/parts/vat inclusive) from the initial figure of £900 after threatening with legal action. Arnold Clark may act tough, but mention trading standards or legal proceedings and you get your way.
The car's back on the road and I missed it so much after driving a Rover 600 whilst it was away.
As much as I detest the little niggles with small electric faults and repair costs, the Megane still begs to be loved. I don't think I'll be letting it go anytime soon, with awesome acceleration and top speed from a non-performance 1.9 diesel engine.
had it 2 weeks got rid of it sold back to dealer brakes squealing waters of letchworth told me this was normal but they would charge me 300 quid to change the pads renault know about this problem ! storage space is very good on the car and rhe car is comfortable however the driver seat did start to wear again waters said there eas nothing they could do!i liked the car in my 2 week ownership and would have kept it however i think renault dealers need a firm lesson on how to treat customers
I own a Renault Megane hatchback 1.5 cdi 100 bhp expresion for 3 years. The car was very reliable no problems. I am proud with this car its good value for money. High build quality and luxury compared with a Toyota Auris.
The Auris feels cheeply made next to the Megane.The 1.5cdi engine is very economical, and runs smoothly and have strong pull and performance. The Ride is soft although its firmer than the Megane 1, but its very comfortable and stable.
Road holding is good and there is plenty of grip but the steering lacks feel and need a firm hand sometimes, but at least its safe. Noise Levels are low but with bigger wheels from 16" and 205/55 tyres they suffer over potholes and bumps, and there are noises from the wheels, but all in all the ride is smooth and the car feels very solid .
Safety is excellent and the body is strong. Space is not very good, in the front its fine but in the rear legroom is poor.
What I do not like in the Megane is the factory Radio cd sound quality is not very good, noise levels from the 16"wheels,rear space,steering.
Things I like: comfortable ride, build quality, styling, performance, gadgets.

My late 2010 1.6 CRDI has covered 43,000 miles in just over 18 months. The good. So far the car seems totally reliable. The interior still looks…
