The Final Renault Insult ?
3 3

20 posts in this topic

The deed is done , the Kadjar has gone ,I've moved on . Anyway I paid off the Finance , checked with Renault Finance that they had no interest in the car and I could freely part ex for my new one and cancel my Direct Debit . "Yes" they said " No Problem " . Checked my bank account this morning whilst waiting for the handover  ( the dealership hadn't opened ) and lo and behold ,Renault had come in and taken another payment out of my account .

There's always a sting in the tale from these bozos .

P.S. They asked if they could contact me in the future about new vehicles . " Yes " I said " but you'll be wasting your time because I will never buy anything off your company again " " What's wrong ?" they said " It would be easier to tell you what you do right " I said ....two words FA

Don't despair ...I'll keep in touch with my fiends  

Good luck m8 you have been through some crap with Renault I only wish I could join you and get rid of this duck egg us early adopters got a raw deal with the niggles but I suppose it's expected for a new build car. I've got until 2018 with motability and the car is going in for a service and for them to get a serial number off the alarm so they can order the part so it will have to go in again for that so I'm well into double figures going to the dealer's

Yes, echo what others have said and again you've been very helpful to me.:)

You know I did a kind of blog on the qashqai owners club as I was slating that from the 1st week of ownership but was tied in for 3 years, did a weekly post and as I lost interest it was every few months, still go back on there even though the car is well gone.

I made good friends and a few who thought I was being petty, believe me my issues with the quality of the car and the dealership service were far from petty.

Is there any one post of yours that bullets the issues you have had?, I'd be very interested to read it.

And above all please hang around.

I don't know if you have made a choice re next vehicle, but it was between the Kadjar and the new Rav 4 2.5ltr petrol hybrid for me, already thinking about that for 34 months time.

I shall as I go along the manual is like War and Peace , so it'll be few weeks before I'm totally familiar with it . One thing I'll say , to anyone who's interested. it's not suitable for towing . I don't tow so it's irrelevant to me

Please report after a year or so, if it's still fully satisfactory.

So far so good :) . There's a user on the Ioniq forum from Norway who swears by it ( not at it ) , it's similar climate to Sweden I believe , if not colder

Norway is generally not really colder, as it sits closer to the Atlantic, but rainier and snowier than Sweden, but similar is ok by me.

And also, Norwegians swears by all cars electric. E.g. they have the most Teslas in proportion to the population of all countries.

Yep all the switches illuminated in a subtle blue , so not to distracting . The wing mirrors auto fold or don't if I don't want them to . No light in glove box though . All the tech works as described by the manufacturer . Headlights are far better than on the S Nav . AEBS works ( some dickhead in front of me tested that for me :D ), Smart Cruise Control works ( slows me down or speeds up without me having to touch the pedals ) ,Lane Keep Assist autonomously nudges me in lane if I drift  . Quiet ride , rear passengers tell me it's quieter and less bumpy than the Kadjar . Happy bunny at the moment  . Not missing the Kadjar..... apart from the auto high beam function , I do miss that
