Yep, make sure the engine oil is changed at no more than 9k miles, better still 6k if you can afford, also use only fully synthetic engine oil .

The turbo is kind of delicate most certainly on 1.9, & 2.2 dCi Renaults & they're damned expensive too.

The cam belt MUST be changed at or before 5 years of age or 72k miles

Good luck, the Mk 2 is a lovely car to drive.
