Thank you both. denb45 the Megane Coupe Cabriolet costs the same money you want to spend. I wouldn´t have changed my Focus unless strictly necessary, but the gear box is broken and replacing it is expensive for a car that is 5 years old. It is not worth repairing it.
Yes WillyWump, I hope so and, as you say, it is very similar to the Focus, but I hope its better. The Focus has given me too much trouble.

The Megane is on the Nissan C platform (Renault and Nissan have a partnership, as you may know) and share parts with the Nissan Qashqai (in Europe), Rogue and Sentra (in the US) among others. To date, I haven't heard of any major mechanical issues with the C platform cars. I drive a Nissan Versa which is a Renault Clio with different front and rear ends and it's been amazing. I think you'll be very happy with your Megane. :)

I am glad to hear that Sunnyflorida. I had a Renault Clio for 3 years before the Focus. No trouble at all. That why I returned to Renault. I will get my Megane on Thursday. I am looking forwar to it, mainly because I don´t have a means of transport now...

you know what they all say FORD= found on the road DEAD

That's Fords more than five years old. A younger Ford means Fix Or Repair Daily. ;D

I haven't owned a car in nineteen years. (had one my first year on the Rock) I'm not jealous one little bit - they're just too damned expensive not only to buy, but to fill up with petrol, tax, insure etc etc etc. My daughter has a car and her insurance premium went up by £200 just the other week. She's been with the company for three years now and has never filed a claim or even had a parking ticket. And now her gearbox is on its way out, according to her soldier-boy-mechanic boyfriend. It will cost her £900 to get it fixed and the car itself is not worth much more than that. :-\ I think she paid in the region of £1500 for it about two years ago.

Give me public transportation or my own feet any day. Of course I'm lucky to live somewhere with half-way decent public transportation. Having a few mates with cars and/or trucks helps too for those rare times when a bus, my feet or a taxi just won't do.

PS - Young men in the UK complained (repeatedly) that they were being charged with higher car insurance premiums than young women. They claimed sex discrimination, and rightly so, I suppose. However, when the law was recently changed to where the insurance companies could no longer engage in this practice, instead of lowering the young men's premiums, they raised the young women's. So it kinda backfired - the young men are still paying high premiums, but so are the young women. The only winners are the insurance companies - no big surprise there. >:(

In Switzerland one can do car sharing - its pretty economical and also environment friendly of course.
They have a lot of Meganes. What I can't figure out is, some models have a lot of power and also there are some snails.  But the newest ones, they are really well done.  
Is your Megane fast and peppy?

BB-
   The SEATs are built to a different market, they are price leaders basically, so the material quality is lower than the Renault. I understand they are pretty reliable too. Also, Volkswagen, who owns SEAT, is thinking of sending it to the great beyond to joins Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Tatra and all the others who went before.

  Be nice to Fords. My 15 year old F250 pickup has almost 200,000 miles on it, and runs like new still. The only issue is the mileage, getting around 9 mpg or so. But having the 7.6L V-8 combined with a 7,000lb curb weight and the aerodynamics of, say, the Astrodome it actually ain't too bad....

Ghetto Bling rims????? They'd be bent outta shape within the first 100 feet of hitting the trail! Jeeps are meant to go offroading. If you want to do the ghetto thing in ABQ, then you need an Escalade or a Hummer with the optional gun holder for your 9mm.... :-*

I have been unlucky with my Ford. My mother has owned 4 Ford before and all of them were excellent. One of them is still owned by a relative, it is 11 years old and still going.

I like that Jeep! even in cream colour. Whis I could afford one (and drive it on certain narrow streets in Madrid).

As Ann says, having a car is expensive. When I asked for the credit for my first car, I remember the director of the small office of my bank telling me it was like having a disabled child. But it gives you a lot of independence and freedom. Where I live I need a car for everything (that is very common in the USA) but not here. If I had to go to work by other means, I would have to spend almost two hours in public transport. By car in 35 to 45 minutes I am at my workplace.

U mean the optional 45. auto holder  ;D Escalade or a Hummer , I'm afraid that's much to rich for my blood
unless I was a mack-daddy- pimp or a drug-dealer  :D

if I wanted to go off-roading or camping, I've have to leave my Ghetto-bling rims @ home, and just use the standard rims  ;D

aint nothing wrong w/ versatility..right  ;)

There's a guy on the Rock who has a Hummer. He got it stuck between two buildings in one of the narrow streets in the old section of Peel, where I live. Silly man. He had to get a tow truck to yank him out.

 That's the way it here in ABQ where I live, without a car it would take me 2 hours to get across town on the bus I had to do this when my tranny went out and was in for repairs, cause I was to cheap to rent a car, and I hated being on the bus with a bunch DRUNKS, not fun  ::)

He was pretty arrogant too. It happened just a few yards from where I lived. I was out in the garden when it happened so when I heard this almighty screeching and scraping noise, I went out into the street to see what was going on. When he first started to get stuck instead of reversing like any sane person would do, he tried to power his way through. One of his wheels went up on the curb and ended up actually being about six inches or so above the ground as he became wedged. That was why he had to get a tow truck to pull him out. Lucky for him, there was a repair garage just another few yards up the road and the mechanic was there instead of being out on a call (which he often is).

I say he was arrogant because he was screaming and yelling that there should be a warning sign at the street's entrance. It was everyone's fault but his own, according to him. Everybody who had gathered around was laughing and saying that if he was so blind that he couldn't see his Hummer wouldn't fit, that he shouldn't have a licence. He really made a mess of the buildings he hit as well as his Hummer. One of them had only recently been repainted - boy was that guy pissed off. I always wondered what his insurance company thought when they got the claim. I saw him driving around Douglas just last week and he's had it repaired, but I bet he doesn't come to Peel very often any more. ;D

There was another time when a fire engine got stuck in another one of the narrow streets here. The driver got in a shit-load of trouble over it too, because he'd been told to not go that way, he was supposed to go the wrong way up the one-way street to reach the address where there was a chimney fire. :D Some people always think they know better.  ::)

Lady Ann-

   Hummer drivers around these parts are known for being complete dickheads for the most part. Drive like complete assholes usually. I also think that there is a rule stating that when you drive one of these pigs, you MUST be onthe cell phone at all times while driving. They buy the the most capable 4X4 on the planet, but look at you like a lunatic when you ask them where they go four-wheeling. They're like the guys who buy the baddest Corvette out there, then drive it at 5 mph slower than the posted speed limit. In the fast lane. Buncha Candy-Assed posers, truth be told. And they're too stupid to realize that what they have is essentially a Chevy Tahoe in a really ugly dress that costs an extra $20,000 to boot.

   We had a neighbor out here who had a Hummer. Got it stuck in a snow-filled ditch twice last winter. I pulled him out both times. I used my 1986 AMC Eagle station wagon just to rub it in ;D. Just because you have the best 4X4 ever made, doesn't mean you are the best 4X4 driver in the world. Duh!

Yep, there's no way this guy goes off-roading - at least not here on the Rock as the only off-road type places are for motorcycles only (aside from private land). He works in an office (finance sector - he worked just down the road from where I used to work in Douglas and I'd see him and his obscene machine all the time), so he probably doesn't have a farm. I don't know if he does it over on the mainland - but I do know that every time I've ever seen him and his Hummer, it's always pristine. Aside from after he was pull out from between the buildings, that is. :D

Ghetto Bling rims????? They'd be bent outta shape within the first 100 feet of hitting the trail! Jeeps are meant to go offroading. If you want to do the ghetto thing in ABQ, then you need an Escalade or a Hummer with the optional gun holder for your 9mm.... :-*

Personally, I'd get the Wrangler. I think it's way better looking, plus you can pull the top and doors off in the nice weather, which in ABQ is 10 months out of the year. The Sport-Trac is nice too, but on the whole the Wrangler is more to my liking in both looks as well as off-road prowess. The you can bring it to my house, and I'll show you all the neat trails. Get the Rubicon edition...

You can even take the Wrangler swimming.

I swore I'd never drive another Ford after the death of my Escort (Either Suck Cock Or Ride Train.) But I eventually settled into a little Mazda truck (same thing as a Ford Ranger) for a decade. Now I have two Fords that are 17 and 11 years old, I've put a bit of money into keeping them running good and safe but they were inherited so they're paid for and they have NEVER completely broken down on me except for the batteries going bad. All in all, I'd say that my experience with Ford lately is pretty good.

Now if I could afford a new car I'd be right up there with some of you big boys looking at trucks and Jeeps...

Hahaha... you guys and your trucks/jeeps/whatnot. :D I'm happy in my little blue Nissan Versa hatchback. ;) It was brand new, about $14,500 out the door.

Wait a minute here,  that  Nissan Versa won't save you in a snow-storm, and I can assure you during the winter in some other parts of the country, you'll be out-of-luck trying to get anywhere in that thing, not everyone lives in Sunny ass Florida  :D

LOL! I've actually driven through a snowstorm in that thing, gotten stuck on black ice (handled that like a boss, I have to say) and done some pretty fun winter things. I drive around a lot. ;) Granted the Vehicle Dynamic Control isn't nowhere as good as a all-wheel-drive, but it's been perfectly fine for me! :D


This is my car on the mean streets of New York City (W 93 Street and West End Ave in Manhattan, if anyone's curious) during my road trip last summer. So proud of her! :D
