Hi everyone, coming out of the woodwork after following the forums for the last few weeks.

We took the plunge and ordered a new Captur on 14th October after falling in love with a friends. We went for the Dynamique MediaNav Diesel in Boston Blue (my husbands fave of all the colours), with chrome trims, nothing fancy as we were on a strict budget.
The main reason for us choosing the Captur is economy, we currently have a Kia Sorento which gobbles diesel and the husband has a 50mile daily commute so we needed to lower the fuel bill.
I must say we have had a fab experience from our dealer so far (based in Wirral), we were told 10-14 days for delivery which after seeing the delays on here I thought was a little ambitious but we have had a text today from the dealer saying the car should be with them on Friday, ready for collection on Saturday, (they are including G3 for us, so that needs applying) fingers crossed :)
They have also arranged 7 day renault insurance which we didn't expect (we have no problems swapping our insurance over quickly) but they didn't want us to not be able to drive the car when ready.
They have thrown in G3, a space saving spare, tank of fuel and the delivery kit.
Just keeping everything crossed that the car arrives as expected and we have it by the weekend. The advice on this forum has been invaluable, thanks everyone, from one very excited soon to be Captur owner.

Welcome jorob48, excellent service so far which is great to read, there are definitely some good dealers out there, especially with the extras they have thrown in for you. Would love to see some pictures when you pick it up.

Welcome in the club. Good choice. I am sure you find this car very smart and comfortable. I love my one. I drive renault cars for 23 years. Never any serious problem. And in my case renault service is also OK. All the best.

Thanks for the welcomes


Ythsie, I think we got such a good deal as my parents went to the same dealer on the same day (actually at the same time as us, totally coincidentally) and fell in love with the Captur too, so they got 2 cars out of one family. Unfortunately they won't get theirs until Feb/march as they want an automatic and it's delayed, but they are willing to wait as they love it

Just wait till your parents get it.....
....they will love it!! I'm a big guy but have back problems, so I wanted a car that wasn't too big for my partner to drive, but could be comfortable for both of us.... So we took the decision to get the automatic...


It's turned out to be a big hit, even though she had never driven an automatic before...and we're both delighted with it!
Silky smooth gear changes and quiet...ideal for us both, because we're entering our senior years and want to travel a bit more...touring

So apart from you, your parents have made a sound choice!! Tell them that's it's well worth waiting for!

Hi Jorob48, welcome to the forum. You have done extremely well with both the deals and the delivery date. It's good seeing all that and a good dealer to boot. Hope all goes well Saturday, look forward to seeing some photos.

Welcome, I to having a bit of trouble uploading. But I'll figure it out. Don't think today will be the best day for a good run. With all this bad weather coming our way. Everyone take care.

Maybe the size of your file is too big when downloading...I had a problem at the beginning as well but reduced the file size of the photos and then had no problems.
