Yes indeed. 

There are only 2 other forums that come close.

One is mk2cav.com, which I used to frequent, but since it's 11 years since I last owned a mk2 cavalier, and so I frequent the other (alot)

www.autoshite.com

If you have a problem with any car, they will know more about how to fix it that any one make forum (except OOF)

Recently we added an additional car to the families fleet, a Low mileage Datsun Puke. Can I find any useful information on any forum anywhere in the world ? No.

It means that they've built millions of the engines, gearboxes and floorpans, and stuck them in Dacia's, Renaults, and Nissans, all over the world, and there's probably a fair chance that every part is available from both dealers and scrap yards at a reasonable price and acceptable quality ?

We must have been very lucky with our Renaults. Never any more than fuel and an annual service. No breakdowns, no major financial outlay and no electrical problems. Maybe ours are the only two in the world that have been reliable.  ::)

Many years ago I had a Renault 4 that I used (on allowance) in the course of my work, doing about 30k miles plus per year, and it just kept on going - just basic servicing - and it was very good on fuel consumption too.
Mind you, having the rear wheels higher than the front helped there because most of the time it was going downhill!  8)

Not the same engine, but my nephew's wife has a 1.4 clio, that she does 30K in a year and I don't think it's EVER been serviced in 4 years.
I think this must be true because she actually thought they would change the oil as part of the MOT.

How do they do iot? Especially when my Renault 4 wasn't even fitted with an oil filter!
Actujally, the only "major" issues I had in well over 100k miles were CV joint replacement due to split gaiters and a siezed wiper bearing - big deal!
