What really peeved me off big time was I fully understand (almost) how
's are lubricated & therefore I used to drive the car accordingly. Avoiding high revs when the engine is cold & hot shut downs, I can only conclude the damage was done by the first owner in the prior 9 months before I purchased the damned thing.
TBH it was a lovely car to drive & very comfortable too with loads of space, but if RUK still made them, I'd only buy one from brand new.
The same applies to the 1.9 Megane
It all depends if & whether / if any prior owner had driven the car with care during cold starts & hot shut downs, it's a bit of a lottery I'm afraid.
