Renault Scenic Review

Yesterday can say that I own a 2001 Renault Scenic., 1,6 16V – 110 hp (108), 84,000 km. with a proven history of performed service on the vehicle handling and original 2 +1 switch. Open topic, because I think there are thousands of people like me who have a choice what brand and model to choose the class mines.

I want to say that to date any money for a car means many variations to choose because “crisis” led to greater reliability, quality and security to the purpose of the purchase or formula pay off a large amount of expectation for further cost savings.

I do not know how true to formula, but if these so called. “Lower costs” are constantly in time become a big expense for a drop of water can make a pond and stone ruin your perseverance. However, before I buy a car I want to tell you that I compiled a short-term goals and objectives. First, I put limit 3000e eur. (Sum which includes purchase, maintenance, non-avoidable charges – insurance (without helmet), vignette, eco-tax, registration), further decided that to the amount you can add another 150 eur. if something is 100% worth it.

Then I decided that the car will be mandatory minivan and French production (cheaper parts are, workshops in Europe and are filled almost only German production – I have a personal view, because I live near the four workshop is a common myth that France soft and luxurious ride for less money). So the goal then narrowed to two options Xsara Picasso and Megan Scenic.

As extras I wanted to not much electronics – the French are renowned for not faring electronics inaccurate sensors, poor solder joints, nesistematiziranost the wiring and ignoring the details. However, the last 10 years show a large jump in time of exterior, followed by a compact design. Let us not forget that the first but not least economical car in the world is French production after World War II demands. As parameters for gasoline engine 1.6 max 2.0 min more than 90 hp required to attend and complete 16v injection diesel exceptionally mandatory direct-injection 2.0.

Production year 2000., 2001. Mileage 2002 to less than 150,000. Required to have stickers (oil, etc..) And service book. This was drawn by me-term goals and objectives for choosing a car. It’s nice to devise such a plan so you know where you’re going and where it should arrive.

In 2003 I drove a little Picasso and I was impressed by the French idea, but to fulfill his plan was to find an alternative that would cause me to finally decide that I will choose Picasso. I saw Renault Scenic, but I knew nothing about it. That’s why I started a discussion with Uncle Google. Two days tight crawl websites with forums, test drives, reviews, information and history of the two cars. And though I could not make the final choice.

Advantages of Picasso – a representative exterior and interior (overtaking at least 5 years Renault Scenic), more electronics (again outpaced Scenic), excellent parallelism between body and engine. At the same time, these advantages are also its weaknesses – the exterior is “uncomfortable” on the inside of the driver side front because vazduhobranno glass, respectively nefobar look at the front of the cockpit. (In this personally am convinced in my first upload in a brand new Picasso – the result was scratched due to poor lateral part of maneuverability in narrow space, I parked and when I returned the other cars were parked and since I was not used to and visibility gabiritie the car ended up there), many electronics requires higher cost of service for possible damage and also a prerequisite for such a defective part to follow another.

Renault Scenic – smaller dimensions, more maneuverable and more preferred to Xsara city center, less electronics, less appropriate costs in this area that often gives cause for concern, a larger tank, excellent compactness of achieve internal volume and external dimensions of the car in economical in sravnennie Picasso. And for Europe I might add that they have more opportunity for excellent service than Citroen. I found it on the forums Citroen – people mostly complain about no good and incompetent car maintenance and high price-taker (I personally have friends who have suffered from the “masters”).

What is common between the two cars is the mass of 1325 kg. and additional approximately 560 kg that both cars can take extra. Differ in dimensions Renault Picaso o is longer and wider. Every man for himself to answer why are the same weight but different in overall size. That in itself, for me it speaks of one frame is stronger than the other frame, taking into account that Renault has plastic side front fender. Of course talking about gasoline engines.

I read anything on the internet to see what I go on view, but taking into account that I was dealing with some kind of trade would venture to say that everything about the car can learn from indirect human behavior which sells it. Forever know the weak and strong areas of my goods such as cover salbite and pinpoint strengths, it’s trading tricks and I was pretty sure that it is used and with both cars. I went and started viewing. I can tell you that both cars are the right choice.

But any one will watch another one else did in the previous and so it will. I.e. ideal choice when buying a second hand car just will not – there will always be comments, but this is a great opportunity to use the occasion to ask for a discount. DO NOT be afraid to ask and insist traders always want more than they should. After several conversations with various vendors realized that min 350 eur. I can download from any specified price if I’m arrogant and 1000 I was sure.
After losing six hours of light I realized that only God’s intervention VERY GOOD choice will benefit both you and just thought I looked towards a group of people gathering in front of a Renault Scenic. So to speak skinny ass is far from known. I recognized I headed choice to it and there a man explaining to avomobila. The lid was open and I saw looked ICE familiar signs that it is a myth and not changed some hoses and I beams, fenders, etc. I found leaks antifreeze was original (recently drove the Danes and use new Renault garages) I knew it a specific color and smell, I found the original stickers stuck for service in Italy.

I asked for the service book gave it to me and I compared what I had realized it was true. I went inside a new familiar smell that can not be simulated with varnishes and paints bewitched my mind. And just when shtchh ask for spare trunk look a hand me the keys and both original and unseen reserved heard a voice, ” Start engine and if you go 20-30 eur to diagnose a computer. Already knew that sitting in a car that is a real person. Nobody retailer will offer you to do that without it you that was the strength of this car.

When I watched it touched the engine to see if it was lighted – it was cold and when turned the key – Swiss watch and familiar sound of engine of Renault. I had already decided this is the car. Although there was a slight external cosmetic remarks scratches on the right rear of the lighthouse at the back of the tank. Original tires Michelin energy and still with pimples. Even if the backup was not used. not all of the commotion tried lights and air conditioners, but what I saw was enough to pull out the money and leaving a deposit. Course was ashamed to ask discount. But approached with a business issue and look that I realized the dealer willing to give straight and he said my money, not his 300 eur down were achieved without them I want, but that’s my profession.

So there is a story of all trade, but not for everyone. In this case, I can say that if the car was Picasso it would be my choice. I want to tell you that before anything else can watch whatever you have to feel in your heart that this is your choice. I want to tell everyone here that I am glad that I was part of you, those who have Renault Scenic. I would love to share with you the moments spent with this car.

Now I can only ask for opinions on my purchase. I know the engine is preferred 1,9 dci, but I’m sick of smell of oil, I do not know that, but if I’m 100% sure 108 hp to absorb 1,860 kg., I think my choice is good unless the ICEs series of this type are not successful.

I want to tell you that I live on wheels and this is my first car minivan that fond of the very first upload it. I hope that if I have a need to share information will be helpful to each other. And for those who wonder as me before you buy this car will tell you that as gathered from his wife as to be reunited with his car.

Comments from owners of Renault Scenic

Renault Scenic

2009 Renaul Scenic

Renault Scenic is a very good family car. It will be much more practical than either Opel Vectra and wagon. I watch more than one who is owner for 5 years 100k km. The car has no major dramas for maintenance. There was little of the usual problems with heels, but things got better. That is 1.6 to 90 horse motor and no worries. Vectra excels in my opinion.

We have the same Renault Scenic (but 2.0) for the family car for a few years and I think that is the most practical solution for wife + 2 children. Super spacious, there are plenty of room for all the luggage. Rear seats 3 children sit without a problem and were close. With its rear seats removed is nearly van transporting him to the washing machine, small fridge and desk.

Small engines are pretty weak and come on this car. 1.6 on the highway, and if you put Cymatics and barely moving. I would preporichal you need to look the same, but with the 2.0 engine. Renault Scenic e heavier and cumbersome than the standard Renault Megane and I wanted a bit more power for a comfortable ride. Maintenance is like any Renault (price and reliability). With high driving position and some summoned them super comfortable and not others. Obobshteno – a super model, just look for a larger engine.

My friend has a Renault Scenic, May 1998 and 1.6 90 hp In short, the car is spacious and comfortable, and the traffic behavior is surprisingly good, ie stable in turns. However, I am of the opinion that 90 hp are small, especially for such a small car. I drove a lot of time (and now drive it sometimes December) Peugeot 405 with the 1.6 engine and 90 hp and a long time has been sadness, there is nothing to deceive, especially with 4 people + luggage.

So in a nutshell, 1.6, 16V Scenic-old, who has 107 “horse” is a good choice, but if you can get a 1.8 or 2.0 engine, do not hesitate. As already said, in the power supply is never redundant.

My boss is one of the three years. 1.6, 16V. And he praised a lot, buy it new, I got over it by observations close. Now it is about 60 thousand kilometers.,’d Done half in Europe. A strange car problems so far burned three coils and care rather than steering rack. On top of that, the cost to the city is less than 9/100 98 gasoline, which I think is more beautiful for such a bulky vehicle.
