(not asking to much i know hehe).The only other thing is are the scenics reliable? all i seem to hear are bad things.Any advice on a suitable model would be much appreciated also news on reliability would be greatfully received.
many thanks
Hi Smudge

Have a read through the links below

Renault Scenic - Buyer's Guides - Review of 3 Scenics

Defo go for a phase II model as the 16v engines are a vast improvement on the 8 valve models, I would not go smaller than a 1.6 engine

Scenic I

Scenic I Phase II

I would think in todays credit crunch times you would be able to get a Scenic I Phase II for about 2000.

Difficult finding a good MPV type vehicle at that age as most have had a hard life on the school runs etc
