  1. As said be warned a drop of only 5 o/o of the battery and the car won’t start For some idiotic reason the battery has to be at 95 o/o. You’d think they would supply a 6v spare one for emergency. I’ve been caught short waiting 15 mins outside shops having the radio on. It does however warn you after 5 mins though
  2. Map up-date Are they serious ?

    As way of an up-date I'm still waiting for them to resolve my issues. Renault UK have said, "I've not herd back from them yet, but I can see some activity on your account so they must be looking at it" Lol poor guy, doesn't know the tech guys that well yet...
  3. One or two expletives

    I'd still check, most places do have CCTV across the whole car part for theft ?
  4. For the past 3 months now I've been running back and forward to my Kadjar inserting a usb and then trying to up-date the maps to the current map issue. HOWEVER IT GETS TO THE 99.9 % or 100 % then crashes time after time after time. I've had instructions from Renault Technician's with adding code to get the Kadjars Map log files then sending off the streams of data ... you name it we have done it. I wouldn't care I only just got it back on the road and the wife hit the curb shattering the wheel bearing so I can't even take it to Renault for them to do the up-date, although Renault Technician's have said they too would hit the same problem. I'd have liked Renault to do the repair work too but at just under £2K for a wheel bearing and a support ? I'll do the job myself when buying the parts is a fraction the cost. It's a bit odd I think too that my first years free map up-dates runs out in a few weeks time, I'll go ballistic if it solves itself just after this year expires.... Anyone else have trouble up-dating to the new maps ?
  5. Workshop Manuals

    LOOK on Ebay... £7.99 or the delux £10.99 Worth every penny. Its actually the dealers PC version with very detailed drawing for all repairs !!!
  6. Parts, Parts and bloody Parts !!!

    As a way of an update and not a very good one too... With all the hassle I was having I decided to cash in my chips and ask for my money back. THEN I was told because they couldn't return them I would have to wait until they sold them and that could take a long time. I asked to speak with the manager, I am the manager he told told me ! Well in that cse I'll see you in the small claims Court, and walked out. I was told by the online Courts claim to write in and give them notice. I did and give the 10 days to replay or I would be seeking ALL COSTS incurred with this claim, and you will not hear from me again but the Court. Within 3 days I got a letter just saying come and collect your money !!! RENAULT UK ....SORT YOURSELF OUT
  7. Bose sound system quality?

    Bose sound system is crap !!! no other way of describing it really in my view, there are many greater systems available with smaller componanats so needn't take up the entire spare wheel space ! The basic sound produced by the basic system is good enough for the average trip in a car, and as said if the wheel arches are linned like in the KIA and you have good fire wall insulation sound is good, not great but good...
  8. Parts, Parts and bloody Parts !!!

    One other thing, on the mounting I had to buy a small pin and that cost £15 plus vat as I couldn't get the other one out as its put in with 100 pounds of pressure, however the new one will screw in ?
  9. Parts, Parts and bloody Parts !!!

    Thanks for that I will... Although most of my complaint is verbal as in visits to the parts department so I think I'll struggle to show how long I have waited and been mucked about. But thanks anyway... They have now informed me it is available in France ? Great I said, we are in the UK.... They will get it for me but itll take 5 to 10 days... I wait again If I had put it into Renault and paid £210 per hour labour, I'd have had it back in 4 weeks..... with a huge bill of course yet I've had to wait (it'll be 7 and a half weeks just for the parts) then the main parts are only available in Europe ? are we not part of Europe ?
  10. Parts, Parts and bloody Parts !!!

    As a way of an up-date.. After such a long wait I was told to come and collect my parts !!!! WOW GREAT However, when I got there I was told only one part was there and the rest are now not available to order ? Not available to order, I asked. Yes I'll have to wait until Renault make another bulk order then I can order them. I will of course be behind Renault and their repair workshops ? I've never heard anything so stupid in all my life, You'd think they would order some and keep them as spares but No, as when needed, I sais well I need them ? Yet if I put it in Renault they would order them ? WHAT A CON ....
  11. yup,,, sign post recognition, lane departure warning, headlights auto dip and auto come on in dark or shady places. Id go for the full S nav upgrade rather than a few updates done to impress buyers ! As you say, resale try telling a trade=in centre its just nearly a S Nav ?
  12. New key?!

    I think the key is programmed from the CPU in the car, most keys on ebay are from cars that have been written off and are perfectly ok to be reprogramed from the CPU or Renault reprogram the CPU then keys in case of theft. Even Stolen Keys will be reprogramed as Renault are not going to search their database as the key may have been found ... Either way it'll cost £78 for a reprogram or £154 for a CPU and Key reprogram. Supplying your own key will save you around £65 From Renault in Newcastle
  13. Parts, Parts and bloody Parts !!!

    Monday will be the 6th week.... Its a case of no after sales service I think, I ring to enquire and have to keep going through the process that I went through when ordering the parts. Drivers Wing, Crash Bar (one side of chassis to another) and radiator ... and of course the engine mount ! I also need 2 headlights but haven't asked about them yet .
  14. R-Link 2 IPhone Cable Connection

    I didn't have a problem pairing my iPhone 6 to the car ?
  15. After owning a number of brands of cars over the years I can honestly say Renault win the award for the longest wait for parts or simply not supplying parts to the general public ! I think its scandalous that Renault are not supplying enough parts, and making it so hard to order parts. you have to go to the dealer to even order parts, then its such a long wait. Further to this you have to keep ringing them to find out if they have arrived as them informing you is just too much work for them... An Axel stand slipped and cracked an engine mounting, so I have to replace it. Asking Renault to do it involves paying around £200 per hour labour, so it being a simple job decided to do it myself. Then the nightmare began.... You simply cant just order one without a very, very long wait. I could have walked to France and hand made the product then walked back 10 times and its still not here ! God only knows what will happen when we finally leave Europe ? This will be the last Renault I buy .....
