    My commiserations. You can probably now relax in the knowledge that the miscreant does not have too long to live. His driving acumen will see to that!

    There seems to be a general inability for service departments to reset the service interval to the correct value. The diesel Koleos is 15,000km in the service manual but the interval is always set to...

    I can't agree that engineering was any better 40 years ago. Most early Renault 16's were severely compromised by a distinct lack of engineering in their driveshafts. My R16 was fitted with Cardan...

    Whatever floats your boat! You might have found out that French vehicles of all kinds don't bring a fortune on the s/h market if you had bothered to check before you bought it. On the other hand it...
