Check if the cam belt has been changed, should have been 72,000 / 5 years. Sunroof can leak and very often rattle. Bonnet catch should have been replaced on a service recall, if there is any corrosion it may not have been done. Move the front seats back and forward as often the air bag/ service lights will come on due to Renaults dodgy wiring.
They are great cars, despite a few faults.

Re: clio 53 dynamique

I suffered from that stupid air bag warning lamp problem a few months back. Turns out it was caused by rear passengers' feet snagging the sensor under the front passenger's seat. The dealer put a plastic shield over the sensor when the car was in for servicing which has alleviated the problem.
More recently, I have suffered from a few immobiliser problems. Every so often, the immobiliser lamp on the dashboard will flash rapidly as if to announce that for the time being at least, you are going nowhere. Still, over 100,000 miles, that has caused the one stranding I have suffered, so I can't complain too much.
At 99850 miles in my hands, my Clio II has served me very well. It still does not blow any smoke and delivers 70+ mpg (a petrol will do nothing like that - mine's a diesel), so your 95,000 mile prospective purchase should be fine if it has been looked after. That said, my car is beginning to feel a little old and it's replacement, a new Clio dCi, arrives in a few weeks' time.
