I think you'll find that the engine was probably replaced because the turbo blew up, taking the engine with it. The engine wouldnt be replaced due to a recall related to throttle sensor.

Just make sure you change the engine oil / filter every 9,000 miles with a good quality synthetic oil and filter. The 18,000 mile service interval is too long, causing the turbo failures that the DCi engine is renowned for unfortunately, Renault have now changed the service interval to 12,000 miles !!??
