Take your pick mate! It was mainly contamination - looked like little round blobs peppered all over it. Also there was a lack of laquer on the wing mirror! The paintwork really was pants - much worse than my Mk1 172 (which is soooo thinly painted it chips whenever the wind blows in the wrong direction...
Funny, but when we examined it closely (when we decided to reject it) we found a crease in the door and chips out of the edge of the door - not acceptable at all! Renault gave us no hassle at all and agreed it was not of satisfactory quality.
You always seem to be on the defensive - you dont need to be! Theres nothing at all wrong with a dCi 65/80 and I dont think anyone here is under the illusion that everyone wants/needs the highest powered car in the world just to have a giggle in...
Just an observation... (But Id cane you in my 172 anyway, so dont even start comparing torque figures! )
Id love to have one of these new DCis - fantastic MPG, loads of torque from the motor, very respectable in gear acceleration times, and all the luxury kit as well. I had 3 of the >2001 style Clios (all petrol) have now sold the last one and have something different but Im looking for a (cheapish) Diesel of some sort. Might have to wait a while before cheap DCis are available though! I think the Clio DCi is one of the most economical Diesels there is, always gets a good write up from the motoring press.
Yes I have the um 65 model (two months old)I think and am really pleased with it!..its the most sensible car I have ever owned (previous inc TVR Cerbera,Subaru,Escort Cossie,M3...etc) and despite have only 60bhp?...I really like it!...great value for money and am getting about 550miles from a tank at the moment but its all short stop start in town mileage so might be better if I did more long runs.Brilliant!
