    My car

    I test drove this car only last week and it was a fantastic experience.

    First it looks good and is very comfortable. It feels very sporty even before you press the ignition start/stop button.

    It's very easy to drive and the engine was responsive to the throttle, a very fast car.

    I loved every minute of it but would have liked to taken it on the motorway.

    My car

    52 plate. Wish I had never bought it. On third set of rear discs in 12 months, rust on driver's door - on a door skin put on by Renault UK themselves!!! Remote locking doesn't work and will cost £850 to fix and now an injection fault and fuel consumption has dropped from a constant 50.4 to only 41.3 mpg. Worst car I have ever bought and will never buy Renault again.

    My car

    A powerful car with excellent aceleration, speed and dynamics. Fuel economy good at 31 MPG +. Nice cabin and all mechanicals good. Great motorway driving!

    Only downside is the electrics. Problems with locking mechanism (handsfree) and lights. It is a maindealer job to change the indicator bulbs!Locking mechanism worked fine for 18 months then took five trips to the dealer to fix when it broke. When working though, it is great to not have to ever get the keys out of your pocket.

    Never broken down and pretty good on front tyres. Lots of safety kit.

    Service cost quite high but to be expected I suppose. Main dealer good but parts expensive. Discs and pads much cheaper from an independent garage.

    Get a second hand, nearly new model and save a fortune. Not many quicker cars on the road. Good bangs for buck!

    My car

    I love my 05 plate Megane 1.6 Dynamique 5-door. I loved it so much I made my husband buy a 55-plate Oasis 3-door version, too!

    I love driving this car and I also love the safety element which gives me peace of mind with my toddler in the back.

    The only downside I have faced recently is that I have had to call the AA out twice and take it to a Renault dealer (luckily under warranty), and just recently the driver seat adjustment handle snapped off without my knowledge.

    Overall, though, it's a car which I would recommend to others.
