Hi Robert,

The estate (or 'Grand Megane' as Renault insisted on calling it) TomTom edition was announced in 2009 and introduced to the market in 2010. It was much better built and more reliable than the previous Megane, but there are still some weak points to keep an eye out for. Those include fragile fuel line clips, burned out coil packs on the 1.6 petrol, particulate filter problems on the 1.5 diesel, electrical problems especially with the windows and the heating system and premature clutch wear.

Further to your comments above, I own a 2010 Grand Megane TomTom. I have put about 170,000km on it. A fine car if kept serviced and looked after (like any diesel), does about 55 mpg in cross country driving and is the best car I have owned - that includes a 2008 BMW that the engine and exhaust system blew up in!
