I feel obliged to establish one overriding fact right off the bat when discussing the Renault Wind and it's one that needs to be borne in mind throughout this used car model guide. The Wind is not a bad car. In fact, it's a reasonably good one. Unfortunately, its launch was bungled by Renault, it was saddled with a quite ludicrous name and was thus never likely to cut it, even in one of the softest markets in the car business. Tracking down a used Wind is an inexpensive and relatively painless way of getting a nearly new car with some genuinely worthy attributes. You'll just have to grow a thick skin as people snigger when you tell them what you drive.
