Megane series 1 Diesels advice

Hello, I've had a series 1 scenic petrol for years now as a family car and have been pleased with it.

I have run an old fiat punto as a second car but I've spotted a nice 2002 megane series 1 1.9DCI. I wondered if any one could let me know if these are any good? Main areas i'm interested in is.....
2.Running costs.
3.Ease of maintenance especially cam belt
4.what to look for.

Re: Megane series 1 Diesels advice

hi if the engine has been looked after with plenty of oil change's should be all right.take off the oil filler cap and check that there is not to much pressure,sign of blocked breather,listen for tubo noises.test drive should boost up a 2000revs with no black smoke.ensure no waning lights on need two key cards,all windows work up and down central locking does starts first time,besides that if you maintain it properly it will look after you cheers
