Lovely car, practical, spacious, fairly comfortable adjustable seats, high seating position is great for tiny drivers!
Some electrical faults, roof plastics started to warp and looks lumpy. drive is okay but its like a boat around corners - wobbly and can feel lumps in the road, it struggles to start in cold weather, battery drain is quick, lack of power experienced on shallow slopes at higher speeds.

A very comfortable car to drive and ride in. The main feature I look for is from the driver seat if it looks and feels good then it ticks my box as I have to sit and look at the dash etc all the time im driving I don't need to look at what the car looks like from the outside whilst driving. Overaul this car has exceeded my expextations and would recomend it to anyone

Overall a very practical and comfortable car as long as you are not doing very long journeys in it. The space and design are very good indeed and my only concern really is that after 5 years , even at only 54k on the clock, is build quality is starting to be a bit suspect. I'll buy a new Merc E Class estate next time, probably a 2.3 or thereabouts engine size.

Impressive build quality and amazing practicality of Grand Scenic seating. Good passenger comfort and equipment levels even on base model. Quiet and refined to drive and impressive traction control/braking in recent poor winter weather. Minus points are relatively poor fuel consumption from 1.6 petrol engine (May improve when run in) and notchy gearchange.

Exactly what I was looking for. Reasonable economy, good comfort, more of the features I wanted in this car than the competitors. Only criticism is that the external panelwork is very flimsy, i.e. dents easily, and that a paint flaw that appeared after two years was not accepted under warranty as the paint warranty was only for three months!.

A good family car that has proved to do what it should, with plenty of space, comfort and practicability. Early issues with engine vibration and a noisy sunroof took the shine off the initial ownership, as it took nearly a year to fix but the car actually seems to improve with age!

Top of its range model, my car has plenty of power to spare facilitating comfortable driving and safe overtaking at moderate engine speeds. My wife and I have been delighted with the comfortable ride and visibility with no "blind" spots.
Altogether a very satisfactory purchase.

I'm happy with it. No major problems, very reliable and practical. I chose it because of its comfort for my wife who has back problems (she also has a renault Scenic) and we are so happy with it that when she changes her car on retirement in May 2010 will purchase anothjer.

We have found the Scenic to be comfortable, practical and economical. It has been trouble free except for an electric door window going and a problem with the rear wiper not always working. I also like the tall smooth riding position. It is an excellent small family car.

Overall, comfortable efficient transport, lot of space to carry almost anything. All in all has done everything I ask, carrying building materials or seven people, or travelling 500 miles in a day in comfort and returning 45+MPG. Recommended.
