OK, so I have a little list of things to be fixed on my import 172 (bought May 2002). I phoned a nearby Renault garage up, and was immediately asked if it was an import! According to the bloke on the phone they have a book on what is and isnt covered on imports and whats different e.g. certain items are covered for a shorter period of time, other arent covered at all (whereas they would be on a UK car), etc., etc.
Surprised? You bet I was! They did at least confirm that they would honour the 2 year warranty!
Has anyone else experienced this sort of attitude to import warranty work?
