From my limited knowledge of renaults.......

Check everything elctrical works
Make sure it has had a cambelt change, and look for an invoice not just 'yeah it's been done'
Check for regular service, especially oil changes
And then basically everything you'd check on any other car

  • Make sure you witness it starting from cold.
  • Check all the lights illuminate on startup, and extnguish as appropriate.
  • Look out for rough running or lumpy idling.
  • Under bonnet check oil filler cap for any white deposits, and expansion bottle for any oil traces.
  • If original stereo is fitted, check the code is present
  • If car has alloys & locking wheel bolts - check the removal bolt, spare & jack are all present.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
