Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Renault Captur hatchback?
Many Capturs will have been used in tight car parks and on school and work runs, so it’s worth checking the bodywork for any scuffs. Also, check the alloy wheels for any kerb damage. Check the seat material for any difficult-to-remove marks and the seats’ operation, as well as that of the boot lid.
Due to defective welding, the catalytic converters fitted to some examples made between 20 February 2018 and 14 April 2018 will need to be replaced. Speak to your dealer for further information if you think your car might be affected.
Wiring for the alternator
The electrical wiring for the alternator of some Capturs built from 8 July to 23 July 2019 could short circuit, and will need to be redirected to prevent this from happening. The alternator itself will also need to be inspected by a technician in case it needs to be replaced, so speak to a Renault dealer for further information.
Seat belt buckle
A bolt fixing one of the seat-belt buckles to the car could either be loose or missing on some Capturs manufactured from 13 November to 20 December 2018. Speak to a Renault dealer to find out if yours is affected by this because a technician will need to check that the bolt is present and tightened correctly to prevent further issues.
