Renault Trafic 2020
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: It doesn’t have best-in-class safety and a three-year warranty looks underdone compared to stronger-selling rivals. Which is a shame, because the Trafic’s benchmark engine performance, sweet-shifting auto, load-carrying ability, driver comfort and overall competence makes it difficult to fault otherwise.You can read the full review here.

Renault Trafic 2020 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Renault Trafic here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Can the clutch wear out on a Renualt Trafic if the hydraulic robot control unit is faulty?
Clutches are deemed wear and tear items, which is why they wouldn’t cover the replacement cost. While 80,000 km is not a lot of kilometres for a clutch replacement it is getting near the kilometres that you would anticipate it. The two things shouldn’t be related, I would guess that they saw the clutch was nearly worn-out and it was deemed best to replace it now.
SOUNDS like you need a van. The European vans are way ahead of the Japanese rivals in every aspect except price. They can be tricked up with all sorts of accessories that can look very cool. The Vito is worth considering, as are the VW Transporter and the Renault Trafic. If you can get away with a smaller van, look at the VW Caddy. The Japanese vans don't rate highly in crash testing, but the European vans have all the safety systems you'd expect in a passenger car.
A wheelchair conversion
IT'S really too early to speculate on the reliability of the present-model vans. I would be surprised if you needed a van as big as the Sprinter or Ducato to transport your 13-year-old daughter. I would take a look at the Vito, Transporter and Trafic before the Transit. The latter has a pretty ordinary reputation for reliability. Have a talk to the people at Capital Special Vehicles, who specialise in doing the conversions.
