When out shopping yesterday - man got in conversation with wifey - ‘ohh I like that he said referring to the Wind’ I’d like to buy one for my wife - is it electric. Why do people presume the Wind is an electric car? The same comment was made on more than one occassion at Silverstone last year as I recall Rolling Eyes lol.

Yes a few people asked us that question as well as is this a new car never seen one before.

Is it a new model?

Did you import it yourself?

Is it electric?

Is it really a Renault? (This from a Frenchman!)

All par for the course!!

I wonder if you have a wheel bearing going or something like that, it would produce a loud rumbling noise if that's the case. Granted they're not the quietest car in the world but I don't find mine to be noisy beyond a normal conversation level

The noisiest things on my Wind were the original fit Conti Tyres but this was tolerable for the type of car.

I've since noticeably reduced road noise by changing to Avons.

That said any noise that makes the car unbearable has to be a problem so straight back to the vendor assuming it was a dealer.
