Question Renault Grand Scenic 1.9dci 2004 onwards

Hi all. As you can tell from the title, my husband and I are looking to purchase a Renault Grand Scenic (we need a reliable seven seater). We have decided to buy a diesel and I've been told the only one worth getting is the 1.9 but other than that we have no experience of Renaults. We are hoping to be able to buy at least a 2004 model but we have some questions for you guys before we commit!

1. Is there a particular year/model that we should avoid or consider? Why?

2. What are the common faults for the Mark 2 Scenics (diesel)? I know there are always faults with any car, but specifically what should we look for?

3. Mu husband likes to do his own services and repairs, partly due to money and partly through trust, but he is quite handy anyway. Therefore we need to know how expensive the parts are but also how easily accessible the engine is to work on?

I hope someone out there can help us. We don't want to put all our money into buying a car and then have it break down too frequently, with finances as they are these days. Of course, whilst we are hoping to get as objective a view as possible, should anyone have any really positive experiences with a different 7 seater please feel free to add your views.

Many thanks!
