  1. Acceleration delay in auto

    Your absolutely right about the lag of sensors and camera! I learnt this the hard way when I was distracted I ended up reversing into a thin metal pole and managed to do over £1000 worth of damage! Yet another reason I will never buy another Renault ever again after this one. I have a love hate relationship with the car!😐
  2. Burning Oil

    It seems to be a feature of Renault cars, everyone I’ve owned has done this. I thought having a 20years break from Renault this would have been resolved by now! Guess not, I reckon they have shares in oil 😂 I don’t think I will ever buy Renault again! Shame really as they make good looking cars.
  3. Acceleration delay in auto

    I couldn’t agree more, eco mode makes no difference whatsoever, in fact I found I get more MPG when I don’t use it 😂! I always turn off auto start stop it’s a pain in the bum especially when at a junction at the top of a hill...
  4. Acceleration delay in auto

    Hi, I have a 2016 1.5 auto and I haven’t experienced the same problem as you. My old Citroen c8 used to do that and I thought it was incredibly dangerous, every junction was a gamble. I’d return the car for inspection if I was you. I’m sure you are protected nowadays and can request a refund if the fault cannot be rectified. Have you register your problem with Renault U.K.? Good luck
  5. Headlight condensation brand new car!

    I dont mind the condensation as it does dry up, it’s the staining it leaves after doing it for almost two years! Surly Renault can installed sealed units that don’t mist up. My previous car had similar headlights and I had no issues whatsoever.
  6. Headlight condensation brand new car!

    I have Led headlights and they’ve stained terribly on the inside they look old and dreadful! My father in law had normal headlights with no issue whatsoever! LEDs in my opinion look great but don’t give as much light at night as the normal ones! Perhaps mine are just stained to badly! I mentioned it last year at its first service and they did nothing about it. I will definitely be complaining formally this year!
  7. Disappointed so far, anyone got similar issues.

    Hi, are you asking about the initial start of the thread? If so the dealer bought back the car no issues, Renault UK apologised and was give £1000 towards a new Renault. I bought a new Kadjar SNav auto via good deal Flame Red. The only issues I've had are with the Rlink2. The car is fine just not as refined advice it could be, some switches are in very strange places, i.e. Cruise/speed control heated seats... I love the car it's really practical and I enjoy driving it. If I was to buy again with hindsight I would probably consider a Kia Sportage. Hope this answers your question? 🙂
  8. 8 weeks in and no complaints from me ☺☺

    That's very tight parking! Almost a handbrake 180 degree job! Them we're the days lol [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi have you swapped your wheels for 17"? I'm thinking about it as the tyres are cheaper and looking for added comfort over the worst roads in the U.K. Warwickshire! I too have the Bose edition great car but lacks a little refinement compared to my previous Kia Optima. If I was to buy again I'd consider the new Kia Sportage but price for price you get a lot more with Renault. I have the auto diesel with real leather heated seats and it's great. Just some silly items missing which some I believe have now been addressed by Renault, Interior glove light box, illuminated buttons, auto fold wing mirrors. Bose Sound system is OK nothing to get excited about nothing compared to Bose products in the home... I've also purchased a spare wheel & Jack. Overall I'd give our Bose edition S Nav Flame Red 8/10 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Oil levels

    Hi, it's a combination fill and dip if you open the the yellow fill point where you add oil you will find attached the dip stick [emoji594][emoji846] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks very much for the colour code for my Renault kadjar in cosmos blue it will save me a lot of time .Do you have any idea who stocks the correct paint for the Kadjar or scratch repair kits Best regards Stephen

  12. Tyres

    Thanks I thought that... I was just curious as fat tyres are cheaper and was hoping for more of a soft ride, I'm considering buying some 17" alloys I know there not as pretty as the Bose edition but I'm thinking of my comfort and long term spend on tyres.

  13. Tyres

    Hi, I'm not mechanically car minded at all unlike some of you so I thought I'd ask. I have the 19" wheels with a 225/45/19 profile... do you think 225/55/19 would work or perhaps rub the underside of the vehicle, or worse make the vehicle unstable? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
