  1. Battery Lease vs. Buy Outright

    Renault ZOE
    Looking to buy a new Zoe ZE40 but I'm debating whether to lease the battery or buy it outright. The only reason I would not want the battery lease is that after 10+ years or so (time I hope to own the car for) whenever I decide to get rid of the car or part exchange it, the lease would not...
  2. Audio volume randomly dropping at 40-60mph

    Renault ZOE
    Has anyone had issues with audio volume intermittently dropping on their RLink? I picked up my ZE40 R90 Dynamique Nav last week and was delighted to discover that I didn't need to jump through any hoops to enable Android Auto as it came with it already enabled, but I'm having issues with the...

    Renault ZOE
    Having heard that a RZOC member had asked their dealer about Pack upgrade to 41kW and been told they were in discussion with Renault I thought I would give Renault CS a call for a heads up. I explained that a RZOC member's dealer was in discussion with Renault re battery upgrade and I was told...
