Waste of money

published

Purchased van in 2017 have had nothing but problems, Diesel particulate filter keeps blocking, apparently it's due to the way I drive.not sure what they mean but I drive to work site park van and then drive home the way I have been for the last 20 years with different vehicles and have never had a problem ( should have purchased another Nissan nivara) not sure how else to drive vehicle. Renault australia refused to fix under warranty but surprise surprise once I got consumer affairs involved they agreed to fix it.

Purchased in May 2021 for $35,000.00.

Big white elephant.

published

Overall cheap to run. Good luck on getting dealer and manufacturer back up on warranty issues near impossible. Had the wrong car delivered 3 times. Took 6 months and threatened court action to resolve. This vehicle has only 30000 klms on the clock 2016 model. At the moment interior grab handles are melting with the summer heat and renault dealer have implied I am responsible for this. Booking a service is a farce as they have a 6 week wait at the moment here in Brisbane south. Sliding door has dropped and the dealer has told me to stop using it so mutch. It must only be for decoration . A $45000.00 lemon. Thoroughly disgusted with the dealers and Renault Australia.

Just a fantastic van

published

I purchased a swb trafic in sept 2016 and by nov 18 has not skipped a beat..and has done 129,000 km in that period..drove from Gold Coast to Goulburn and still had fuel left for approx another 100 km further..so fuel efficient it is amazing.. and very spacious to load all kitchen equipment for travelling. In fact it is one of the best cars i have ever purchased. Looking forward to the next one but will go for a LWB dual..i just love my trafic..service has been impeccable too.

Terrible van

published

I use this van for my business as a car detailer. It has my whole business on board and is a massive advert for me. It has been utterly horrendous and I will never purchase another. It has done under 40k and so far has had.. a new turbo, aircon condenser, fuel pump, master cylinder, gear link cables, radio, gearbox. It’s pathetic and so is the customer service.. please avoid even the dealers admit to them being problematic!

Good to drive, better looking than most vans

published

My van is used for my carpet cleaning business

After a minor prang, it took 3 months for replacement parts to arrive (sliding door and rear panel) from France. It was frustrating because the van looked like a half chewed minty and didn’t reflect well on my business.

Seems to be burning oil quickly, dipstick on low 5000km after first service. Despite getting it serviced at 15,000km and their recommended interval is 30,000km.

Doesn’t like going up steep driveways in forward motion. Vehicle wouldn’t get traction on front wheels and needed to be towed.

Other than that - comfortable drive, great looks and great size for my business

Do not purchase

published

I have had the Trafic since new in May 2017. The master clutch has been replaced 6 times, air bag sensor failed nd had to be replaced, then the air conditioner motor failed. Have just had to have my breaks replaced and was told that the rotors only have a life expectancy of 40,000kms. Dropped of the van to have breaks changed and has taken 5 days as the dealership doesn’t have any in stock.
They should not be allowed to sell this pos in Australia if they cannot perform to the Aussie conditions.
The dealership I purchased it from (Brian Hilton Gosford) is an absolute waste of time to deal with

DO NOT BUY A TRAFIC

Great work van

published

Love this new work van! Purchased last month and really happy with my choice. It drives well, looks good and has good fuel consumption. It also has so much storage, drink holders, compartments everywhere! Even a huge amount of storage under the seat, which other vans don't have. Would highly recommend!

Best Van I Have Ever Owned

published

I have now clocked up 11000km's and have to say its easily the best van i have owned. It has just had its first capped price service. Compared to the Volkswagen T5 which i had this is miles ahead in comfort and drive ability as well as way more economical (i am getting average of 5.8 ltrs /100km mixed driving). The driving position is way better than the Volkswagen and the Hyundai Iload i test drove. Have done two trips over 1000kms now and arrive feeling fresh and like i've only just driven for a couple of hours. Cabin noise is fantastic (i do have the bulkhead installed though - these are well worth their money). All in all i highly recommend the car as nothing else on the market comes close.

The gear boxes on Renault Trafics are notoriously dodgy.

No problem's on my van. Maybe keep all the windows up, restart your phone and all its Bluetooth connections, sit closer to the mic, speak louder. If no change, take it back to the dealer.

Haven't had any issues or complaints from the person on the other end. I find I have to turn the volume up a bit. I've got a Lifestyle pack with the MediaNav, I'm not sure if this would cause any difference though.

Billy

Yep rubbish Bluetooth, cannot auto connect every time, can go thru the manual connect up to 10 times while driving to get connection. Never loads the address book. Almost have to stop to hear the caller and they have same problem.No recognition of the problem from Renault dealer.
Ever wondered why there are so many medianavs for sale on eBay ?
