Hello Forum Society!

Wanna ask your opinions for :

2005 - 2008 Renault Scenic

Questions :

1. Is it a reliable car?

2. Is it high in maintenance?

3. What is the issue I will face if buy

I checked on traders sites and the price is fairly cheap and roomy. Was wondering why the price like that? Does it have problem or future problem?

Planning to buy one for mom to use daily to grocers.

Or do you have a recommendation alternative?

Budget 20k and below. Similar to Renault Scenic in terms of size.

It's French. French cars and reliable don't go hand in hand.

If you want something that large and under 20k, I'm afraid you don't have much choice.

French car has flair....it is a car certainly unique on the road. The car gives a good supple ride too. I have a few ride in my colleague car before.

but since all cars need repair, wear and tear eventually, or be damaged due to accident......this car spare parts isn't gonna be easy to find in Malaysia. It is not impossible but hard to find.

I have see a Scenic in Semenyih that have its rear window wrapped in plastic sheets for many months oredi. I think cannot find part. The car has not been moving since and there are lots of leafs collected on the car.

Since the parts are hard to find (or rather expensive to buy), many ppl have found that it is better to leave the car, than repair it.
Or biting the bullet: ridding the car by selling it cheap.

Nissan Vanette. I think can stuff two grown cows in. Parts plenty, reliable since 20+ year tech.
