I would hardly call that a weakness, after 150,000 miles any engine/gearbox would start to wear out and need bits replacing.

I haven't heard about the rust problem from any other owners. Is the seller, private or dealer?

I would insist on starting the car yourself from stone cold and taking it on a decent drive so engine gets full warmed up.
Electrical faults are a bit of a weakness on Renaults ( French cars in general) so check that windows,locking etc all works ok.
