What should I look for in a used Renault Grand Modus hatchback?
As with the regular Modus model, the Grand has a decent reliability record, but there are some issues.
Like most modern cars, the suspension is generally one of the biggest areas of concern, particularly in urban environments where speed humps, kerbs and potholes all take their toll.
The automatic gearbox, although rare, isn't hard wearing, and can need rebuilding. Parts of the electric window mechanism can also break, so that the whole system needs replacing.
Electrical niggles mean that warning lights on the dashboard may be down to random minor faults, but it can take garages time to find the culprit, and the steering can require expensive repairs. The filler cap can also freeze shut.
