Hello and welcome Tim

I'm not aware of any major concerns with the variant you have bought. With all Renault's, electrics can be cause for concern as they tend to be a weak point! Also, expect high maintenance bills for the 3.0 engine as there's no room under the hood which equates to longer hours for labour

Has the cambelt been done yet? If not that's a large bill as it's an engine out job IIRC

Hope I haven't put you off too much Enjoy the car, they are a wonderfully comfortable machine with the power there if you need it

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
