Advice for buyers

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

The Cabriolet suffers the same reliability problems as the rest of the Megane family, and independent warranty provider Warranty Direct reckons that about 42% of cars suffer problems, with an average repair bill of £240.

Make sure the clutch works properly because replacing it is a complicated job and won't be cheap. The jerky automatic gearbox can break, too, some cars are plagued by starting and ignition problems, while heaters (which are expensive to replace) pack up on others.
