Renault Scenic 2002 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Renault Scenic here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Dealer service or local workshop
It really comes down to what you are comfortable with. Renault does send its mechanics and technicians overseas for factory training so they should be armed with knowledge to fix whatever problems owners have, but you do pay a price for that. My advice would be to use the dealer while the new car warranty is current, but then switch to a reputable mechanic after that, one that preferably has knowledge of Renaults.
HAVING done 111,000km in three years, the car has clearly been well used. The price is low, which reflects the higher mileage. If it has a noisy gearbox I'd consider walking away. The dealer seems keen to fix it, along with other problems, which makes me think he wants to unload it quickly. I'm guessing he reckons he's stuck with a lemon. It may be worth taking a risk, but offer him $12,000 and see if he's prepared to deal.
Renault gives a bumpy ride
I understand from Renault the dealer has been in contact with you with a view to having the shocks on your car replaced. Renault says a handful of vehicles were affected by the problem you describe and that it's easily remedied by replacing the shock absorbers.
