What should I look for in a used Renault Megane coupe?

When the Megane was introduced, it came with lots of new technological features, but if these go wrong you could be looking at some painful bills. Make sure you check all controls and switches to ensure things are working - especially the high-tech roof.

Generally, owners don't experience many issues, although the main failings of the Megane family are present in the CC. These include various electrical and ignition problems, diesel engine glitches that cause the turbo to fail, and excessive tyre wear on cars with 17-inch wheels.

The folding metal and glass roof works well and often the problems experienced by owners are due to the boot being overloaded. There was however, a spate of leaks from the joint at the top of the windscreen. Renault issued a bulletin for dealers to replace the seal.
