    Default megane rs hassles?

    A friend is contemplating hunting out a second hand Megane RS. What are the known reliability failings of the model so that be can be warned &, if he still wishes to proceed, can factor them into pricing decisions? Thanks, Peter

    pretty much trouble free . motors and gearboxes strong . engine mounts can need replacing at high klm

    the tail lights can go funny but if you put in a relay it fixes it

    PH2 handles a lot better - torque steer basically removed . R26 in yellow is the pick .

    theres a good PH2 4 door for sale at present on ozrenaultsport -

    or if it was a Rover, a relay to run a fire extinguisher for the relay....
