Renault Extra Overview

The Renault Extra is classed as a small panel van which was produced by the French automobile manufacturing company Renault. This van was in production from 1985 to 2000 and is based on the extremely popular Renault 5 supermini. The Extra was introduced on the second generation of the Renault 5. These little vans were very well accepted due to their cheap price and cheap running costs, especially the diesel version. They have quite good space in the rear and in the cabin, considering they were based on the small Renault 5. Replacement parts are cheap to buy, they are well built and seem to last a while. There may not be many on the roads these days, but are good little vans. Does this sound like your experience of this van?
