Hi Ghostdancing

Welcome to the forum.

From my experience i can point to two things to look out for, first being the cambelt,ensure it is or has been changed for a new one around 65000 miles,the second is the rear brake calipers if ignored they are prone to sticking causing the brakes to squeal.

Regular oil and filter changes will keep the engine wear down.

The other thing that comes to mind is the ht coils ,some owners have reported failiure, if a problem as they work in pairs it is best to replace the pair.

Hope this helps.

Currently in Getafix's garage:
clean and shiny Scenic 2 1.6 16v Auto. (and a Fiat Campervan).
