No problems after 2.5 years.
On 30/6/17 bought a 2016 Life demo with 900km on the odometer for $27.8k from Castle Hill Renault. I justified the purchase of this car because it was the biggest (almost new) vehicle I could get for the price, which I wanted as I have 2 large dogs and wanted something practical for Ikea shopping, trips to the tip, etc. I also liked the 12month/30k service intervals, as when I bought it I was covering a lot of km for work, thoguh this changed shortly after.
The dealership was excellent. I took a good long test drive and negotiated the deal the...same day. It was the last day of the financial year so they were eager to sell. It was probably the best sales experience I have had in a car dealership actually. The car itself is very good. It is no sports car to drive, and it doesn't exactly fly up a hill from a standstill, but it's easy to live with. Cruises at highway speeds nicely. Manoeuvrable enough in carparks etc. I think it looks nice inside and out. Fuel economy ok at 10l/100km, mainly short suburban trips with a few kms on the highway. Doesn't have carplay/android auto, and Renault's system is a bit rubbish. Bluetooth works better with my Google phone than my previous iPhone, which sometimes took a few attempts to connect. An update to this model now has proper smartphone integration. I have has it serviced at a local mechanic, and it's pretty cheap to do, being a Nissan underneath. No major service items have come up yet. Boot space is excellent and rear legroom is fantastic. Minor things: the doors don't have the solid feel that a previous vehicle (Skoda Yeti) had, and the foam between the windscreen and the dash comes out a bit, though it can just be pushed back in with a key. So after 2.5 years and 45k, I'd recommend this car for someone looking for a practical, stylish vehicle at a reasonable price.
Purchased in June 2017 for A$27,800.00.

Love the car - Koleos Life MY18
A very good stylish looking car, Good value for money, handles well. Build is far better than Honda CRVs. Interior feels much nicer for $32,000 mid size SUV, nice features. 10.5L/100km. A/c works well with dual climate control which i feel is a std. for this range. Spacious legroom, comfortable , reasonably quite while driving, CVT is good.
Renault Koleos Life - Go You Good Thing!
Purchased Renault Koleos Life base model in mid 2017 on a special driveaway deal 2016 plate car.
- Those looks, wow! No other car this side of 50k comes even close but that is admittedly subjective
- Engine has plenty of power, bit of an oldie but proven and reliable 2.5L taken straight from Nissan Xtrail
- Transmission is smooth and confident
- Full digital dashboard, easy to read, customisable. Makes the ones with old-school dials look ancient and hard to read
- Spacious inside, superbly comfortable, classy, mostly quality switc...
