20,000 miles...... and counting

Well, since buying my 182 from new in December 2004, I broke the 20,000 mile barrier today. The car itself has been faultless. It's not used a drop of oil, it's mpg is slowly but surely increasing and it still puts a smile on my face when I give it some beans.

Minor niggles include a few rattles, the usual washer-jet leak on the headlights, an unhealthy attraction of my rear tyres for sharp objects :mad: and the rear wiper blade rubber has split this week. Other than that, I can't complain. And for the original £12k I paid for it, I can't think of anything that would come close in terms of price and performance.

Well done Reno for making a great, all-round car. :D

Had my 172 for two years from new and did just under 15,000 miles and only had a couple of very minor things looked at by Renault. Generally I'd say they are superb cars!! :D

Mine has just clocked 35,000 since July 25th last year, thats 13 months boys and girls!!!!!!!!

Not a problem with it yet, not even any of the usual faults, and it hasn't been wrapped in cotton wool (especially with its 3rd ring trip this weekend!!!).

Had mine a year and it's been a great little car.

TBH I haven't used it that much (3k put on) but the times I have been out for a blast in it have been very good:D
