Renault Clio Renaultsport (2009–2013)

What to watch out for

27-6-2017: Report of timing belt of limited edition 2010 Clio RenaultSport Gordini failing at 24k miles causing catastrophic damage to the engine. The garage has indicated it requires a new engine at a cost of £7,500. So advice is to ignore the 6 year/60k mile change interval and change timing belt and waterpump at 4 years.

8-11-2017: Report of erratic operation of drivers and passenger's electric windows in 2010 Renault Clio Sport Tourer. Do not open/close smoothly and sometimes get stuck open. Owner beleives can be fixed by replacing the control module (eg www.renaultwindow.co.uk). Might be solves by loweting the windows and appluoing silicone grease to the insides of the window channels.
