    Best advice is to sell it during a period of dry weather. Get a bad one of any car like this and it's trouble. Friends have an EOS which has leaked on and off for three years. A neighbour worked in a Renault dealership and they used to see the same cars come in time after time for leaking roof.

    Opening the roof on a slope causes the problem and solving it can be an expensive business.

    Quite so.
    Frustratingly most dealers seem to be ill informed on this issue.
    Originally written in relation to the VW EOS but applies to all cars with hard folding top roofs that rely on supple rubber seals to seal out water:

    This sorts it for *most* people. Probably obvious advice but also make sure you don't use a jet wash anywhere near the seals.

    They always leak you can do your best but the design isn't great and new parts are expensive and won't definatly fix it for good
