No issues with mine

Bought my 2019 Koleos new it now has 107000k on the clock and I couldn't be happier with the car overall.I performed the services myself after the first one.Didn't wait until 30000 each time changed oil and filter around every 15000.So far absolutely trouble free motoring. Show details

Fantastic Car. 13 years old and 230,000km later and never had an issue

Bought our 2011 (MY10) Koleos in early 2016 with 49,000km on the clock. Owned it for over 7 years and now up to 230,000km and this car has not given us a single issue, apart from regular servicing and tyres. This car has been such a reliable commuter, and achieves 7.3L/100km on the highway. Overall, we are very impressed with our Koleos and don't plan on selling of it anytime soon. Show details

Absolute Money Pit!

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! Show details

Great car, loved it so much bought 2

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. Show reply

Happy campers, we love our car

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  Show details

Great SUV with many standard features

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. Show details

Renault Koleos 2016

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 Show details

Very happy with my Koleos apart from the occasional fault with loss of power seems to be when turning left when putting foot down on accerater pedal

Endless Issues

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. Show details

Very disappointed with my koleos

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. Show details

Good car in overall

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. Show details

I have a Renaul Koleos. Live in Queensland Australia. Hour can I change the volume of the warning messages for school zones? They are very loud. The manual does not even refer to them

Philip

Usually on most systems there’s dual volume control: the active volume can be adjusted while speech is in progress. So while it’s giving instructions or going into a school zone quickly turn volume down
