Exclamation First Renault

Daughter is thinking of buying an 01 reg. scenic 1.6 petrol automatic, don't know mileage as yet. What type of problems if any can she expect? Is it basically a good model? Any help or tips much appreciated.

have you looked in the general forum, buyers guide,does it have a full service history,if it has read it and question any major work it has had done,as with any used car it's the chance you take,test drive the car,not just around the block,a few miles get the car upto normal temp then check under the bonnet for leaks,make sure everything works as it should,if in dout have the car checked by the AA,once you have given your hard earned cash,and the car turns out to be a grim reaper,you will have no chance of getting your money back.good luck

Unfortunately the Renault automatic gearbox is somewhat suspect.Check for evidence(receipts etc) of any gearbox repairs.The faults are well documented on the forum,use the search facility to find them.
Apart from that the Scenic is a generally good car.

Welacome to the forum,by the way.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
