Check the thread entitled "Renault Scenic Fire Risk" and if you can, pop out the electric door mirror control switch and make sure the connector is not melting away.

Also at 60,000 miles although it won't have been due a cambelt change it will need one in the very near future (Renault charge £750.00 for this service so bear it in mind when haggling). If it's already had a cambelt change then bonus.

Check for lots of black smoke under heavy acceleration, the DCi's have been known to blow turbochargers even at lower mileages than 60,000 miles (Get someone to follow you on your test drive).

Other than that check for water ingress into the vehicle (Damp carpets) check both electric sunroofs fully open, electric windows and central locking works on all doors and the aircon system works as these are all costly items to repair / replace.

Happy hunting
