Hi. Im in Pretoria, South Africa. Have a Feb 2002 Clio 2.0 (172) Mk 2. Use it mostly for long distance weekend leisure driving. (I bicycle/scooter to work.) At 13 000km got stuck. Renault said blown 30 AMP main fuse (injection relay). At 19 000km on long highway drive got stuck again (in 5th at 6200rpm). Renault say con-rod broke, blowing 2 holes into block, and tanking the alternator and gearbox too. They initially claimed I over-revved. I said CRAP. They said I changed from 5th to 2nd. I said CRAP. They have finally accepted to replace under Warranty but it will take a month to get the engine/gearbox from France (is this acceptable..what about Air Freight?) They also refuse to release the damage report to me and are cagey about the cause. Is all this sh*t acceptable? Nice car but CRAP service set-up (Renault SA that is).
