0/10 dangerously poor design.
There’s too many things about this vehicle that annoy me to list them all. If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s unique for the sake of it rather than to make any improvements then this is the one.

Gear box problem
New Dec ‘20. When stopping trans would take over & select N or Drv3 would not allow acceleration..twice back to Cairns from Cooktown..10 days wait for pump..very scary for a senior solo lady when it selected neutral 1/2 way up one of steepest narrow roads in Oz. If I turned it off n on I could select Drive but then it started to stay in 1st or 2 Nd gear. Still waiting for girl to ph me back from head office since July.

After Sales Service Absolutely Terrible
After sales service is rubbish, my service centre is Springwood Qld they are rude and do not help at all, there head office is also no help, I have had my own business for 10 years and I have never dealt a company that have treated a customer in this type of way, they never call me back, lie and don't fix your van properly, get them to look at it the other day and there was a pump that was not plugged back in under the engine, dont waste your time buying one of these piece of crap!

It is a good van but mechanical improvements required.
I replaced 2015 Renault master with the new one 2020 Auto, LWB a few months back. All new shape and dashboard. It is mechanically very reliable vehicle. Load in it 1.6t and tow1.5t simultaneously with no worries. On my 2015, had 130k, bought brand new, had no problems at all. The total expenses including tires, brakes and four services $3200.00 were spent for five years, that's about $540.00 for a year. Fair dinkum!!! Purchase cost is cheaper than others. Standardised, only Fiat Ducato takes more payload.

Great van with manual 5 speed gearbox
Renaut Master is great and reliable with a 5 speeds manual gearbox. Forget the semi-auto as it will send you broke....I use this van everyday and never had any issues or problems with the manual gearbox. I have now done 180 000 KMS from new and not a problem , just replaced a water pump and brake rotors twice but that is normal maintenance.. A great and easy vehicle for loading heavy cargo
I have recently been slugged with a $6200 repair bill on my 2014 Renault master X62 model. ( Not under Manufacturers Warranty)
I was driving my vehicle in normal traffic when i came to a set of lights and waited for the green go ahead,, but my renault decided to select neutral and stay there..
Three light changes later and I managed to get it going (check gearbox ) came up on the dash warning message.
I drove it to the nearest Renault service centre to get a diagnosis and was told that each time they did a diagnosis it had gotten worse,, now u...
Renault refuse gearbox warranty claim
I have had an ongoing gearbox problem since the warranty period. Now it's out of warranty Renault is refusing to repair it! I have pointed out that I have been dealing with this problem for three years and now this problem had become dangerous I have sort to have the problem fixed. The gearbox won't select a gear and I'm stuck in the traffic. Apparently this is a gearbox problem with the earlier models , mines a 2012 model!

Brand new Renault master no aircon
I brought motorhome and its built on Renault master, found out later aircon doesn't work was told by pary Renault the part would take 2 weeks to get here from France, now they are saying another 2 weeks I can not believe they have no spare parts in Australia. I'm not a very happy customer especially living in townsvile where aircon is a must all year round, the van is only 5 weeks old and has been sitting in my driveway for 4 of them.
Very happy with the Mater cab chassis. Had it for two years and done 20,000 kms with zero issues. Capped price servicing is good at the $349 price I qualified for when I bought mine. Only issue I have is occasionally have to have more than one attempt to engage resverse gear - only a slight annoyance and reminds me of manual gearboxes of days gone by.
Very efficient. No problems so far. 15000kms and no issues except cant turn off lights. I’m told it’s standard in Europe but I drive a Citroen car same age and lights go off. Even though it’s a large MotorHome it handles like a normal van. For its size it’s surprisingly fuel efficient.
Great van but dealers are rip offs
Engine and transmission manual is great very powerful gearbox is a bit noisy
Renault Australia services are very expensive $759 for a oil change laughable when questioned they said oh we use genuine parts the dual mass flywheel just failed it’s under warranty however if they pull it down and find something else there price for new flywheel and clutch Is $7500 the clutch place is $2300 same genuine parts so of course I could not trust Renault to replace so had to fork out of own pocket the side plastic bumper still came off $280 from Renault $31 on eBay for a genuine part now come on I think I’ll buy a vw next time what a shame but I do 100 000 km a year and can’t offord there ridiculous prices on parts and services
Rubbish. Door handle fell off, central locking failed, could not lock sliding doors for two weeks, blue tooth and rear camera failed, paint peeled off both sliding door rails. Replaced under warranty but they scratched the paint work when replaced, the orange paint has gone chalky and powdery. Scallops in passenger rear tyre due to suspension issues. “This issue was brought to my attention buy a Renault mechanic who I did some work for”. Promises from customer service to get independent paint specialist to look at. Village motors in north lakes could not care less! Will engage fair trading now.
Questions & Answers
2011 Renault Master X62. My semi automatic quickshift lever is not picking up neutral or changing to manual shift. Also it is starting in 1st gear and then changing to neutral. What do you think the probelm might be.
Did you get an answer to this problem? I have the same...
Saturday whilst going through a round about, the dash said the van was in gear 2, but the van was reving like it was in N.
Rolled over parked and turned van off. Went to start van again but dash was still stating gear 2 and the light on the dash suggested service now. Van wouldn't start.
So waited 10 mins then tried starting, this time it defaulted into N and started and the light on the dash was gone.
Automatic gearbox, good luck!
