It'll have to be a spectacular deal to make us change because we do like the car we have now. I can't say I'm a fan of the central digital dashboar display in the newer cars.

The Grand Scenic is a bigger car and I wonder if the 1.6 would be a little underpowered.

We'l have to see how desperate the dealer is to shift his stock and what he offers.

I will definately update you all and thank you for your messages.

Defo have a test drive in as many of the models in the range as you can.

Have a drive in a Grand Scenic the handling can be wooly try the 5 seater as a comparison.

If they have a large stock of Scenic IIs they might be ex Motability cars and some tho low mileage have had a hard life.

Different tyre/wheel combinations can make a huge difference to the Scenic IIs driving characteristics.

I personally would say the Scenic IIs reliability is no worse than the Scenic I.

Early cars suffered from the same maladys as the Megane II but to a lesser extent.

A huge difference in the Scenic II compared to the Scenic I.

I would not buy a Scenic II without a long & comprehensive warranty as in any modern car
