Absolute Money Pit!

published

We got the Bose premium 4x2 CVT 2012 model and as soon as the warranty ended, the problems began. We had it routinely serviced through Renault and I took it get a service and said I noticed a slight noise - I had the rear diff replaced at 50km on the clock (at a price of $6K) then 2 years later had the whole Air-con system replaced ($3K) and now the transmission has gone and needs replacing - upward of $5K. I have only done 100,00km, needless to say its a massive disappointment!

Purchased in for $30,000.

Great car, loved it so much bought 2

published

Ok couple of months before 1st lockdown I bought my Koleos Intens 2nd hand, never buy new, learnt my lesson once that was enough. Anyway back to the car, I love it tows a 6 x 4 trailer with 1/2 ton of wood no problems.
Takes unleaded 91, bonus, usual 7.7klm per 100 country running. 30,000 k's between services, no brainer, no turbo, no intercooler (to bust) previous cars- just a straight 4 cyl. Lots of extras in the intens.
Great value for the money.
Wife loved it so much we traded her Honda CRV in and bought another same model. So now we have twins
and both are running with no problems at all.

If your looking have a look at these underrated cars, they are a great buy.

Happy campers, we love our car

published

Never missed a beat, fuel economy is spot on, only clocked up 49000kilometres since new in 2015, the dealership has done small oil change services on request due to not achieving high kilometres where big services are due, very happy all-round

Great SUV with many standard features

published

Purchased the vehicle in January 2018 and have had no problems at all. Love the standard features which are options on many of the rivals such as heated and ventilated front seats. The Diesel engine is economical and smooth. Rlink system can be frustrating to use and I’ve had trouble updating the navigation software as my model didn’t come with Apple CarPlay as standard.

Purchased in for $43,500.

Renault Koleos 2016

published

This does not happen all the time sometimes goes several weeks before it happens.
But after I stop waitng for traffic when I put my foot down to take off nothing happens appart from the fact it moves forward slowly .
Very dangerous if traffic coming towards you could cause a nasty accident

Endless Issues

published

Was so excited when we purchased this car. Beautiful and full of features. Unfortunately after 19 returns for warranty and over 7 months off the road we fell out of love and found ourselves in a world of hurt trying to get compensation from Renault. Literally writing this review whilst on the phone doing mediation with our dealership trying to get a result.

Purchased in for $53,000.

Very disappointed with my koleos

published

I have had endless problems with my koleos since the first week I bought it from the dealership. Even getting repairs done under warranty were a problem through Renault. Annoying.

Good car in overall

published

We bought our Koleos few years ago, for around $15k as it is Privilege MY11 4x4 version f late 2011. Color is beautiful white pearl, pretty practical, as the dust and dirt is not as visible as on black or darker colors. Could be more economical, as it is around 10l/100km in the city. Although on the highway is really good as for SUV, with around 6.5l/100km. Have some issues with tailgate and pump of windscreen fluid, as water is not being sprayed on a windscreen anymore. Did many road trips, driving on a dirt roads, on the beach, never had big issues.
In overall, very good value and 4/5 stars.

Loved it for the first 5 weeks.

published

Absolutely loved this vehicle until the first fault within 5 weeks - fast forward 11 months and the vehicle has awaiting its 4th proximity sensor in its short driving live -expect to wait at least a month, closer to 2 for parts (still waiting).
Incredibly disappointed in Renault Australia’s after sales care, if you hear back at all the response is disinterested at best. Dealership is starting to come on board with support to resolve ongoing issue but I’m yet to feel optimistic about a resolution.

Purchased in at Renault Ballarat .

Koleos H45 (2008-2015)

Hi.
Are the Left hand front window regulators the same throughout the whole of the H45 range 2008 - 2015?
It's just that sometimes I see them advertised from 09/13 onwards to 2016.
I assume that would be from September 2013 onwards.
Am in need of a LHF window regulator for a 2009 H45 Koleos.
Are they all they same regardless?
TIA

Koleos H45 (2008-2015)

Hi. I have a 2014 diesel and it has been suggested to me by two mechanics that the transmission oil may be low or need replacing as the car shakes in fourth and fifth gear under load. Does anyone know where I can find out what transmission oil is used as I would like to replace it with Renault's recommended product.
Thanks
