I have just purchased the Renault Scala and got around 1000km in very first month of ownership. I got some wonderful things to tell about this car and I’ll start with the mileage. I am getting round about 13 km/l and that even in first month of driving. Also what I think is wonderful is that the Scala is giving this mileage without the performance compromise. Just after the purchase I went to the trip to Matheran and absolutely got amazed by the power of the car. I drove uphill at third gear without any fuss and Scala proved a reliable hilly car. What seemed to be especially significantly are the slim pillars of car which makes the visibility excellent and I managed all turns and twists of road with very much ease. This is in sharp contrast with my old car which was a nightmare to drive in hills courtesy its stout pillars. I found this slimness an excellent feature and hope that this will also help me in city insane traffic.
Scala power generation was very good throughout journey but what I quickly learnt from that driving experience was to drive the Scala inright rpm range. Overall engine is good though I have some reservations about the brakes quality which seemed quite soggy to me. May be it was because of the constant spitting rain we encountered but still I expected brakes to perform better as the Scala come with ABS.  I’ll consult this with the technicians of the company.
Another thing I found quite well is the space in the car. Renault Scala is quite spacious and though I feel head room is short especially at the back, other type of room space is abundant all-around. Especially mentionable thing is the massive amount of boot which stands at 490 litres in Scala so now like me, you won’t complain about the extra pieces of luggage your family may carry all the time. Another adorable feature in my Scala is the indicators mounted on OVRM and adding to the convenience is electrically adjustable controls making them absolute breeze to use and adjust.
What though I not like is the small buttons on steering especially the round one which is not very accurate in its operation. Similarly though chrome door handles look good but when I use them they don’t feel very sturdy. Also I think these should have come with large size so as to use them with ease and comfort. Ride quality of Scala though I found good at high speeds, in city there is some issues especially driving the car below say 20-30 km/h mark. I can experience the jerkiness of Scala at slow speeds and though it is not very obtrusive especially sitting at back; it still disturbs the composure of the person driving the car.
Gear box though nice to use but I found that while shifting gears in hurry it doesn’t feel quite accurate. Many times while up shifting from 4th gear to fifth one, I require effort and that effort too needed to be directed in particular direction so that the gear engages in right slot. I don’t know whether this is inbuilt or my car has got this flaw. So two or three issues I have listed down in my diary this I will get addressed during my next visit to the service centre.
