Re: Which one????

The 1.4 is a bit underpowered for the weight of the Scenic.
I had a 1.6 coupe which had much more torque and was easier to drive.
The engine is basically the same apart from the stroke I think.
For an 02 model, it seems that car tax is the same for both.
Insurance group goes up by 2 groups for the 1.6.
Fuel economy is probably very similar if you drive the same style.

Tiger750, Like you said, pretty much everything is fixable and parts are cheap. Plenty of info around for these mdels too.
No dephaser pulley or eeelectronic throttle body to worry about.
Don't you just love throttle cables.
As with any car there's good ones and bad ones but at least you know what you're looking at.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
