Its hard to tell the extent of the damage from that pic, and fire damaged cars have been repaired in the past. But yeah, I wouldn't want to drive it after.

I have a Clio and had a major'ish problem within the first 4 months of owning it. Theres a Renault forum and from reading that, they're not the most reliable cars even from Renault fans.
