Hi, My 2010 Renault Megane decided to stop on the way to work this morning. Recovery vehicle took it to a garage and diagnosed a cam-belt failure / rebuild costing minimum £1500. Having looked around on various motoring sites some people suggest this will have damaged the engine and require potentially, a whole new one at £4000+ I have full Renault service history and got them to do a 40 point check before the warranty expired in March of this year. I was told everything was fine. So my question is... Where do I stand legally on this as I know Renault will say 'Sorry, out
Background: I have a Renault Megane bought from new in 2007, it came with a three year warranty which has now expired. Renault have a design defect with the windows of the megane of this age where wet gets into the window controller and the window fails either up or down. If you call Renault UK they even have an option on their IVR: Press 1 if you have a problem with scenic dashboard Press 2 if you have a problem with your megane windows. Press 3 for everything else. Renault accept the problem and have extended the warranty on the windows to 10 years @ 76% of the cost
Anyone had problems with this, as everyone including Halfords won't do it, so I am going to have to do it myself. Any suggestions? Other than getting rid of the car. Halfords say they fit bulbs, give me a price, but when the guy heard it was a renault megane, they suddenly said they couldn't do it....
