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

Renault has had a regular spot among the bottom 10 makes in the What Car? Reliability Index. That said, Meganes are by no means the worst offenders in Renault's line-up, and repair costs are cheap.

Electrical faults are the car's main weak spot, particularly if damp enters the fuse box - check all the gadgets work and that every instrument and warning light responds correctly. There are also isolated reports of problems with the handbrake not releasing properly.
