I'm confused however. You say diesel. Is that right? I had assumed that the 2.0 litre 2004 unit model is petrol. If it is petrol will that make a difference to the reliability problem?

The car you are looking at will be a petrol. As in 2004 Renault didnt do a 2.0 turbo diesel engine.

As long as the car has been serviced regularly, with good oil , the reliability should be fine. I'd suggest seriously thinking about taking out an aftermarket warranty on the car, however you will get 3 months from the dealer.
