Renault Scenic - RX4 Buying Advice

Hi all,

You probably have been asked this but apologies for asking again...

I'm looking at an RX4 with the 1.9 DCI engine which has done about 63,000 miles.

My question is how reliable is the 1.9 DCI engine and have there been any recalls on this engine. I've read horror stories about the 1.9 DCI and am wondering if they apply to the RX4 (2001 Y registration). I keep bees and between May and June must have a car to manage them.

I have to do softroading primarily along muddy fields (short stretches but can get very muddy). Will the transmission hold out or not?

The reason behind thinking about the RX4 is its MPG which is high for a 4wd.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
