Advice needed on potential Renault purchase of old Clio
I have a small budget of approx £1200 to buy a 'new' car. I don't want flash or speed, merely the most reliable car I can get for my money. I have looked at *tons* of cars and need your advice on one in particular.
I have come across a late 1997 R-registration 1.2 Mk.1 Clio with one previous lady owner....and 10,414 miles on the clock. This car is mint and in timewarp condition. Now, after trawling through hundreds of cars aged 2002-2003 with 80k+ miles on the clock, finding this car has thrown me something of a curveball.
I have heard all the things about short journeys being worse for cars than long journeys etc but my question is this, surely this car is too good to turn down?
Will I experience electrical problems with the car or any other kinds of age-related issues? I'm struggling here!
