Renault Scenic 2017 OnwardsTowbar electric kits

We recommend that all tow bars fitted to a Renault Scenic's 2017 Onwards are fitted with a dedicated electrics kit, this not only helps to ensure all modern features, such as trailer stability, parking sensors function correctly, but also ensures that the vehicles manufacturer’s warranty is not invalidated.

A quick look at Renault's warranty page, personally I found Renault's warranty page to be the most confusing, however, it does appear to offer the option to extend your warranty up to 10 years, which makes it by far the most comprehensive warranty program I have seen.

Depending on whether you have taken the extended warranty cover, Renault Scenic's which are less than three years old, and which have driven less than 100,000 miles on the clock, will have a manufacturers warranty active.
