You have quite a list there. I strongly suggest that you contact your dealer and discuss the problems with them.
Whilst the forum is a good place to help understand and track down issues. It looks like the forum would not be in a position to offer direct help to all your problems.

The quicker you contact the dealer, the quicker the issues will be resolved.

I would suggest that your car has a leak. I would have suggested sunroof, which has been common with Renault over the years, but clearly not the case here.

It could be any number of places, radio aerial is another favourite.

As above, get it back to the dealer ASAP

Radio volume is a known issue. Apparently it often reverts to just adjusting the volume of satnav announcements rather than the radio

Its interesting what you say about the volume adjuster, IvorETower. The volume paddles will adjust whichever item on the infotainment system is running at the time. For instance, if there is a sat nav direction announcement, the volume control will adjust the sat nav volume. It there is a traffic announcement the volume controls will adjust that. This way each item on the infotainment system has its own volume control.

FYP; I'm only reporting what I have read elsewhere - that even when the radio is on, sometimes the volume buttons are affecting the satnav volume and not the radio volume

Dealer promptly!! Too many issues that you should not have...unfortunstely....
Certainly a leak...adjustment on dipped beam...washers are bad on all of them...slight adjustment, but they are set like that on the wipers and surprisingly DO work ok....but I agree are weak.
No such problems with R link...adjustment for volume on sat nav done seperately.
The rest, as I say, DEALER!!

Sorry Scotslyn I have been lucky enough not to have witnessed any of these problems. My Captur is one of the best made "new" cars I have ever bought. I once had a new Ford Saphire 1.8GL that had miss mathed boot and bonnet panels and central locks that went into cycle mode whenever I locked the doors with the key. I had a new Fiat Punto elx that blew its right side brake light bulb every couple of weeks. My new Fiat Bravo had its sports skirts split from the sills within a day of collection. And on and on.
My captur is sooperb.

Hope you resolve your probs soonish, but I think its a "wrong un" rather than a generic problem.

On the washers, is it pressure or just that they are aimed too low?

If you open the bonnet, you will find a slot for a screwdriver in the side of the washer jet body. This can be used to rotate the jets.

It's a PITA because you have to close the bonnet every time to test your adjustment

does sound like a leak
is the condensation caused possibly by having the air recirculation switched on , this causes my volvo to mist up very quickly
i always set the air direction to the footwells at night this diverts any cold air that might enter the car away from the windows and makes a difference in the morning
out of interest who is the dealer ?

Hi scottishlynne
My wife's capture has the same problem with wet floor and has been at the dealership since Tuesday 6th may which is now the third time Renault has tried to find out where the leak is coming from.

The Captur is not perfect, it doesn't have a water temperature gauge for one thing, like many new models these days..... cost-cutting gone too far IMHO. In the past 2 years water temperature gauges have alerted me to problems looming in my own car,that of my wife and that of younger daughter.
