Been offered a car

Hi all,

Looking for a bit of advice. I've been offered a 53 plate Renault Clio Dynamique, 1.2l for 1300. This is the first time I've bought a car since I got an old Corsa 11 years ago so not sure if this is a good price or not. It's a friend of a friend selling it who is a mechanic. MOT for a year, tax till September and it's in excellent condition outside and in.

Any advice would be great.

Check for any warning lights on dash, as it had a cam belt, any knocks rattles, does it pull to one side, gear box quiet and smooth, brakes in a straight line no smoke.
Others can no doubt add to this list.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

Re: Been offered a car

Just check it as best you can and if you like it, go for it.
Mind you, the 1.2 engine is a little on the pedestrian side, especially if you normally drive a 3.0 litre Audi.
