I'll bet its a 1.6? If it's a ph1 Scenic then it'll be the 1.6 8v engine, same as in my car. Not bad little engines in them but there is one big problem - frailty of the cylinder head gasket. From time to time eBay is littered with Meganes and Scenics with HG failure. If the cars got to 100K so far then I'm pretty sure it'll be fine!

I agree with Lag, 1000 is great value for money, and the Alize spec is pretty nice having aircon etc.

I don't know what likely timing belt and clutch costs are - I assume the Scenic is slightly different to the Megane due to differences in access.

The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
Currently in Bob925's garage:
2015 '65 Vauxhall Astra SRi, and a variety of "lovely" buses
