Re: Should I buy a cheap scenic II?

Ours has had a replacement dash, best way to confirm approx mileage, is to check MOT history. Ours Jumped down & was priced accordingly.
Not all low mileage Scenics are "clocked" more likely they attract old gits (like me) who cant cope with lower seat heights & only do minimal mileage.
Compare mileage to wear on the pedal rubbers.
As for failure, IMHO more to do with parking in bright sunlight than mileage, they get dry joints & old capacitors.
