    My car

    I HATE THIS CAR , I BOUGHT IT 18 MONTHS AGO WITH 19000 MILES ,SO FAR I HAVE REPLACED ALL FOUR TYRES ,ALL OF THE IGNITION COILS,FRONT AND REAR DISCS AND PADS, EXHAUST ,SHOCK ABSORBERS ,WHEEL BEARINGS AND NOW THE FRONT BALL JOINTS NEED REPLACING . I THOUGHT £4999 WAS CHEAP FOR A 3 YEAR OLD CAR WITH ONLY 19000 MILES , I NOW REALISE THAT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR . I HAVE ALWAYS PREVIOUSLY OWNED VOLKSWAGONS AND WILL NOW BE GOING BACK TO A GOLF .I CANT WAIT TO GET RID OF THIS SHED I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER RENAULT AGAIN. UNFORTUNATELY VW DEALERS ALSO KNOW HOW RUBBISH THES CARS ARE AND ARE ONLY OFFERING £2500 AS PART EXCHANGE, BUT I WILL SUFFER THE LOSS BEFORE WASTING ANYMORE MONEY AND TIME ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WAITING FOR THE AA, "DO NOT BUY THIS CAR "

    My car

    I've got mixed views on this car. We bought the car at five years old with 30,000 miles on it. The front discs and pads having already been replaced.

    It's hugely practical and I can't fault the design of the car, but in the first year, the ignition coils went and the dash unit had to be replaced, luckily under the used car warranty.

    Two further years of trouble-free motoring ensued, but now the rear wiper has packed up, and I'm just waiting for more electrical problems to arise.

    I have started looking for a Corolla Verso to replace it, as I never had any problems with Toyotas in the past.

    My car

    I have owned my Scenic since new and I am about to change it for a newer car.

    I have really enjoyed owning it and will miss it, but it's now four years old and I can't keep it forever. The only issue I had with it was that the shock absorbers on the back failed at about 33,000 miles, but I live on an estate full of speedhumps and was told they went due to this.

    Other than that, the car has run like a dream. I've had to the change the front tyres and front discs and pads and the rear pads, but that's due to wear and tear. Overall it's been a good car and I hope it serves someone else well.

    My car
