Re: Should I buy a Mk2 Scenic?

Pays your money takes your choice
At that sort of age, good chance many of the one time faults would have been dealt with
Mine had a new dash before I bought it and heater resistor pack when I bought it (dealer did it)
Found out since it had a new handbrake motor unit in 2010
Most faults since have been minor, fixes only frustrating cos Renault designers have no idea of maintenance or repair needs
Had a handbrake issue that was a pain cos of lack of information/knowledge but resolved eventually without megabucks
Its worth looking at relevant forums about any car type to see what their common faults are
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
