(24th October 2018) 2006 Renault Modus Petrol Manual Hatchback by Jon Lynas
We bought a Modus for our kids to learn to drive. It's perfect for a learner - cheap to insure, excellent visibility, flat back end to make reversing easy also the gearing is low - so it is comfortable driving in 4th gear at 25 to 30 mph. Has been reliable - over 9 years of ownership. Several broken springs, new coil pack, new window motor but not much for 9 years. Only thing - changing a headlamp bulb is notoriously difficult - have done twice and takes about an hour and a half - a small quibble about the best car ever owned (driving for 40+ years).
