Renault Uk's future...

So, with all the talk about whether Renault ZE range has a future in the UK, what about Renault itself?

I came across this article;

http://www.am-online.com/news/2012/8...of-2013/31424/

Quote:
"Seven months after Renault UK announced a model and dealer cull, it says everything is on track for a return to profitability by the end of 2013.

Renault discontinued the Kangoo car, Modus, Wind Roadster, Laguna and Espace in the UK from February, while the dealer network has been reduced from 190 to around 135."

Total UK car sales ...>



Maybe the future for Renault dealership service is to hop on a ferry? The French Gov won't allow Renault to fail. Maybe explains why they are propping up ZEs with Departmental purchases?

RE: Renault Uk's future...

I think Renault IS trying hard to remove their useless dealers image.

Renault is in the top ten for best dealer experience (position 9/10). The bottom 10 includes Citroen and Peugeot.

I never considered a Renault because of poor experience with the local dealers years ago but a friend of mine bought a Renault Coupe a couple years ago and he said the dealers have been fantastic. Looking at the above survey, it appears they are improving. I think Renault are also trying to compete in the markets they're traditionally good at - the Clio. Once Renault were popular in the 1990's but then it just went wrong.
