  • This is not a forum but a community!

    20100521_GTX_0003.JPGWe all love this mythical and popular car, because we sailed in one being childrens, because someone in the family had one or just because it always made us want it... because it's endearing, whatever we say.
    Its great success is certainly due to the fact that with a simple mechanics, with little or no electronics, it is easy to maintain by yourself without expensive tools, without forgetting that the parts are not expensive and always easy to find. Even today, for some homes, students and people with "little budget", it is a source of great comfort at a lower price: far from car loans and garage mechanics, which are becoming more and more inaccessible. The small engines models (the most common) are very robust and still consume very little, sometimes less than recent "equivalent" cars, which makes it by definition just as ecological, if not even more by the simple fact that we we always use it instead of buying new ones ... At the level of the official technical control, benefiting from its "seniority", it does not undergo the modern standards much too restrictive, the tranquility is assured.
    Today it is still an interesting car for everyday use, especially and clearly from an economic point of view.
    Collectors are also beginning to take an interest in this 30-year-old "granny": restoration, maintenance or refurbishment, repairs, etc ... make it possible to find "newer than new" models for the pleasure of the eyes and to see this French heritage thus safeguarded.
    We have created this community to bring together all those who are interested and who wish to take part in this adventure to preserve their Renault Super 5, whether by maintenance, repair or restoration: you will find in this community all useful information and tips on these topics.

    The forum is freely accessible in its entirety: there is no need to contribute, buy, neither pay anything to integrate the community and participate.
    To be able to ask questions and share your interest, all you have to do is register and present yourself properly!
    You do not have to have a Super 5: an interest in auto mechanics is enough!

    Welcome !

Renault 5 Le Car



Aux U.S.A, elle était vendue de 1976 à 1983 sous l'appellation Le Car.

Elle était en compétition avec la Honda Civic et la Volkswagen Rabbit et ne put jamais tirer son épingle du jeu.

La version vendue était celle à moteur 1 397 cm3.

Un exemplaire Renault LeCar de l'année 1980, l'un des rares exemplaires encore existants, a d'ailleurs été aperçu sur un site de vente (photos ci-dessus).

Le vendeur, résident de Hanover Park, dans l'Illinois, certifie n'être que le deuxième propriétaire de cet exemplaire en bon état de marche,

mais visiblement attaqué par la corrosion, talon d'Achille de la Renault 5/LeCar.

Il est précisé que les freins ont été refaits l'an passé, mais que l'échappement est à remplacer.


Une voiture proposée à 2.900$, soit environ 2.500€.

Sur la 2eme photo, c'est une LeCar version Française ( série limitée sur base TS phase 1 )

Des LeCar Amercaines, on en trouve parfois, c'est pas si rare !

Il me semble qu'un membre du forum, Zarma, en a une d'ailleurs ( je ne sais pas si il l'a encore )
