I would say that the price was a little high,but if the garage is trustworthy and has a good reputation I would probably pay slightly over the odds for that peace of mind.I'd check what warranty they offer and go from there,but if the car is as good as it appears to be I'd probably go for it.

There is a large choice of these out there though,so if your not happy with any aspect of the car or the deal,walk away as another one will be easy enough to find.

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

2001 (Y reg) Clio,
1.2 16v dinamque
3 door
miles: 45,000

its in great, almost perfect condidtion, both inside and out and im getting 1 year parts and labour warrenty from the dealer/garage.

it has been listed for 3,000... went down and had a chat with the dealer and best best price i managed o get too was 2,700... ive been told this is quite a high price but i need advise from one you guys

ive looked around and ive seen cheaper ones etc but they have higher milage and not in as good condition

what is the overall virdict all things or no deal?

p.s, the dealership has been around for 30+ years and has a good reputation in the area?

the way cars sales are at the moment you might get lucky if you go back and haggle again. take someone with you and a handful of cash, let them see your serious and want to do a deal and if they won't budge on the price walk away and see what they do

Take your time. There are thousands of Mk II Clios about.
Have you considered a diesel? Very nippy and refined plus 65 mpg to boot.
