I am looking forward to gleaning much of use from your site. The local renault dealership is passed around like a hot potato and most local mechanics avoid european vehicles like the plague so I have been left to my own devices with an inadequate Haynes manual and the odd bit of info in french. With 180" 15 feet of rain a year and more gravel than bitumen roads maintainance is an important issue for me. My other car is a v8 discovery so fuel consumption is also an issue.Both vehicles have design peculiarities that I try hard to convince myself are "PERSONALITY'. On the positive side they are both excellent for their intended purposes. Cheers.
