2002.... the age !

TBH at that age, same as any car or make, it could be relatively trouble free or could be a right PITA.

Lags generally not too bad.
Common problems
Electronic Handbrake (if fitted)
Spurious electronic faults
But no worse then any other Renault and probably other cars of age.

Check service history for cam belt changes.... one will cost more then the car is worth so unless done, walk away. 70K or 5 years, whichever is earlier.
So should have had 2 and be due third on age alone.

Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.

Check for current or old leaks from the sunroof into the footwells, particularly into the UCH in the driver's side fascia- look in the fusebox behind the hinged panel.
The ECU is under the battery so check for general nastiness there.
