Re: 2000 scenic buying advice

Boot may not be bigger, but IMHO the total rear area, especially with the rear seats folded or removed, is SO much more usable. As far a being a "womans car" goes, you will notice a lot of women driving Scenics. My Mrs for one, loves hers (her second). As a "white van man" myself, Scenic upright driving is preferable, to the roller skate she used to have.
The Scenic 16v can be noisy, but that's usually when I drive it into "hooligan mode" 3k revs upwards. Running light throttle reduces the induction roar to minimal levels. I went for the last of the Phase 2's coz I didn't want the problems of auto-handbrake, key-cards, dash failure & self combustion. Similarly, the last of the line has all the faults sorted & all the toys as standard. Not all Scenics have twin sunroofs, Aircon & CD Player as standard.
Currently in Nottnoc's garage:
2008 Scenic Mk2 Dynamique 1.6 K4M 782. 1998 BMW K1100LTSE, 1994 MotoGuzzi Caifornia 3 LAPD, 1972 Norton Commando, 2010 Trafic SL29 M9R782 115, Lots of tools, Camping Gear & Booze

Re: 2000 scenic buying advice

I use my 1.4 Scenic as a run around and have an 8 seater 3.0 V6 Vauxhall Sintra for long runs and fetching the kids up from Devon once a month. Being a tight a r s e all converted to LPG.

Spat me dummy out when I had to pay 80p a litre!!!! at Woodall services on the M1 tonight. Only paid 60p a litre last week at Sainsbury's at Taunton I wonder why I think we are getting ripped off on fuel?
