    The 3 most reliable cars I have ever owned were all Renaults.

    1. Clio Williams - covered 191,000 miles and the only things that went wrong were alternator and snapped clutch cable
    2. Scenic - covered 145,000 miles, only thing that went wrong was a cracked manifold
    3. Clio Renaultsport 172 - covered 110,000 miles with no major issue whatsoever.

    I really do wonder why they get so much bad press.

    My Kangoo Trekka has clocked 179747 miles so far. Has had 3 timing belts and at least two sets of brake discs all around. Otherwise a very reliable car. Still on original exhaust. The Trekka has a second to none underbody rust protection. Looks like new under. Same cannot be said about Smart cars. My 450 was so rusty you could see trough the steel.

    Those are called "windows" you are supposed to be able to see through them.
