  1. Dear Seniors, I will like to ask if any of you are driving this particular model, as I have been experiencing it gearbox problems. A couple of time while in the jam, the panel will display a red message warning me that the Auto gearbox over heated. Did went and told the service staff at Wearners, which they told me that this car is using dual clutch. In a traffic jam situation, it will be advisable that i put it to neutral to prevent it from overheating, as the clutch system well keep on engaging while stationary during the jam. The other problem that i am experiencing is that at times, after starting the engine and move on, i will experience jerking or the gears not changing by itself and will keep dragging the gear when i accelerate. Suppose to move from 3 to 4th gears, the gear will just stuck at 3rd. Feedback to the service staffs before during routine servicing, they told me sometimes it is the on board computer system error, which I will need to stop the car, cut off the engine and wait for a few seconds before restarting the engine again and the problem will go away. This morning such problem happen again while i was on ECP. As i am not able to stop the car in the middle of expressway, therefore, I stop it after reaching the traffic light near Bugis. But before that I switch the gear system to manual while on the expressway. I was on 4th gear and try to swift the gear up as i moved faster, but the gear just skip 5th and go straight to 6th gear. Same thing when lowering the gear. I will skip 5th gear and move straight to 4th while i was on the 6th. My concern now is that as this car is coming 3 years old. Should I get the gear box change while it is still under warranty? Please advise. thanks. P.S: I am a normal driver whom don't play with manual gear as I used automatic gear since this is a daily car. When i do reversing, I will wait for a second or 2 before swifting from D drive to R.
  2. Another high-performance car has been spotted in a crash while going at a good speed. Our latest post shows a Black Renault Megane RS going at a decent speed before losing control while stepping on his brakes. e166fed5-f4f3-4fbc-b00b-9de415dbd071.MP4 From the video, we can see that the driver was trying to avoid the road works in his lane but curiously, the car seems to have malfunctioned while he was on his brakes. If you looked at the video carefully, you could see straight black lines on the road, indicating that the tyres locked up before he slammed into the left side of the viaduct before bouncing across into the opposite barrier. While it did seem like the Megane was at or slightly above the speed limit, the crash is quite a mystery to us as under normal circumstances, there is more than sufficient space to stop or avoid the roadworks. What do you guys think? Could it be a brake failure, tyre puncture or a case of the driver falling asleep at the wheel? Let us know in the comments below!

    Renault Alpine A110

    Something to compete against the likes of the more establish brand Renault Alpine A110 light weight at 1080 with 1.8 T, seems very Alfa kind of formula
  4. Looks like the hot Hatch category getting interesting next Year You Have the Renault RS which is zero to 100 in about 5.7 to 6 sec New engine. Not as ricey as the Civic and tamer. Functional Diffuser. 4 Wheel Steering, which may not be everyone's liking. Hopefully, they nail it this time round. Its downsize to 1.8T instead of 2.0 T so I suspect no replacement for displacement means the 150 to 200 kmh range will be slower on the straight. Comes stock at 280 bhp while GTi is 235 bhp. vs Civic 308 bhp. Let see what kind of prices. If the number falls in the 145 to 155 K range, probably have very good takeup rate.
  5. Upon reaching adulthood, you're faced with two choices. You can either take your chances with our public transport network to get to work or spend half of whatever amount of money you have left to your name to buy a car. If you've decided to go with the latter, why not get a hatchback? It's probably the most sensible option for a tiny island country such as ours.

    Renault Megane 1.6(A) a good car?

    Yo bros and sis, I'm planning to change to a conti ride and was crossed between a Renault Megane 1.6(A) or a VW Jetta 1.6(A). Any experience and comments for these cars? I owned a Renault 5 before but that was donkey years back. I should say this car has lotsa problems. Everyweek squat at the workshop waiting for it to be repaired. Has Renault improved over the years? Thanks!

    FD2R vs Renault Megane RS

    I know one is turbo and the other is NA. One has stop production and other is very new. Which one will you choose for its performance?
  9. Anybody care to comments? Pros and cons? Am helping a friend looking for 07 1.6 sedan with 6.2k depreciation. Currently market doesn't allow him to look at Toyota (VIOS) or Nissan (Latio) as the depreciation is ridiculously high at 8k-9k plus. Only 4 door sedan please. strictly no hatchback. Would interested to know more on Megane in terms of maintenance, fc and parts cost compared to GLX and Avante. So far, Megane has the highest OMV of 19-20K with low depreciation of 5k+ annually and 10k scrap return.

    Hi dear all, What is your opinion on the car above?Fuel consumption, wear and tear, and most importantly, servicing intervals and cost because I am all fine about installaments, insurance blah blah blah but they say Renault items are very expensive and their servicing (Wearnes) price cut throat!

    Dacia Lodgy: The Romanian people carrier

    [extract] When Renault took over Dacia in the late 1990s, the Romanian automaker car models look rather drab. Most of their cars had boxy shaped shells, as though the cars were from the 1970s or 1980s. Some would contribute this to the Communists influence in Romania (could

  19. Was crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing when I saw this black Megane (SFC464*T)came at a high speed and jammed brakes stopping after the stop line of the crossing. I looked at the driver and saw the female yawning with her mouth really wide open. That 40-ish woman really had a big mouth. I checked the TP website and was delighted to find out that she had an outstanding summon, served her right: Date of Offence Nature of Offence Amount (S$) Demerit Points 05/05/2007 SPEEDING (EXCEED SPEED LIMIT OF 70KMPH ROAD) UNDER SEC 63(4)RTA CAP 276 (21-30KMPH) 150 6

    Hi! anyone driving renault kindly post some comment on this car . 1)which workshop to do minor servicing with reasonable charge 2)any extra service to do on the convert motor 3)any re-fine tune ecu for this car
  21. Hello, was wondering if any owners of the above models (all 1.6L cars for around $71k; Ford Focus not being considered) would be able to give me feedback on the following aspects: 1) the quality of the cars ie any defects causing trouble requiring workshop repair within lets say, the first 3 years 2) the technical support by the dealerships 3) generally what they're like to drive on a daily basis. Looking for feedback on what it's like to own any of these on a long term basis, having test driven them. Thanks so much!
  22. A used megane is abt $55k. Is this a good buy ?
  23. Saw a 04/2005 Renault Megane 1.6L auto car from a direct owner and the agree price is $42K. OMV is $20700 COE is $18300 Paper value now is approximately $31.5K. Looking at driving for a year and intend to export the car at the 3rd year. Like to ask whether is this a good buy since French car body does not command a good value. Have anyone of you ppl exported the Megane body and how much you got for the car body
