Should I buy it with these issues


I've seen a very neat and tidy Clio 1.5 (80 bhp) 03 plate in wolverhampton.
However upon talking to the dealer the car has had 4 owners in 6 years, 2 of them dealers and also there has only ever been 1 proper renault stamped service and 2 non renault services in 76,000 miles.
there is also a small ding on the near side drivers door.
They are asking 3,400 for it.
It is the billabong version and seems to be of the top end spec.

I can't help feeling that the history should be something to be wary of and it is going to be a 6ish hour trip just to see the car.

Would you advise I still go and look at it or is there considerable doubt in the service and owners to say steer clear.

I'm not technically minded and i dont know any mechanics to help advise me

Really not wishing to buy a car that is just going to be a liability.

Cheers for all your help and for reading.
