Am I mental to go for an old Megane?

Am I mental to be looking at a 2003-09 Renault Megane? I have heard they are very unreliable, but I currently drive a 1999 Renault Clio and apart from minor items it has been trouble free. What's your view on the Megane?

Hi Aaron,

I'd tread very carefully. Although the engines in the Megane II are pretty robust, any and all of its electrical and electronic systems are suspect to say the least, and the suspension is prone to failure too. Only buy if it has a seriously flawless service history and appears to be in perfect condition - and even then I'd be wary.
