Re: Advice needed please

if the fan is not working it can be the fan itself of the resistor pack the 1.4 16v on a long trip at a steady 60-70 mph i was getting 50mpg but that was with the engine kept in good service
i had a 2.0 scenic as well that was much better more power when you need it and as long as you are not heavy on the foot a long journey it was also getting 50mpg
as for reliable they are as good as any other car electrics can at times be a pain if you go ahead make sure you have 2 keys as a new one will cost 160
as for the warranty unless you get a short one from the seller it has none most important when was the cambelt changed as its around 60-7000 and i think 4-5 years another member will correct me as i could be a bit out on that
