Smile '04 Scenic - to buy or not to buy!

Hi Folks,

I'm new to the forum, I've been 'lurking' for a while but this my first post.

My Wife is looking to replace her '99 Polo with either a Scenic (phase 2), Megane hatch or Saloon.

This evening I've been to look at a 2004 Scenic with a 1.4 engine, with 65000km (45000m?). It's a bit tatty, but here in Ireland I've found there's not much for under ***8364;5500 which was our limit. The cars runs ok, but I've found the following points and I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to feedback any info:

1 - Water in Drivers' footwell storage box (dealer did tell me the car had been valeted twice, as the prev owner had dogs)

2 - Neither of the rear windows work from any switch.

3 - Heater fan doesn't work on no 4.

4 - Small puddle of water on floor underneath the middle of car, approx under the bulkhead (I'm thinking aircon condensor)

5 - 'Parking brake fault' with accompanying 'stop' sign on dash.

6 - There is a damp oil patch on the cam cover, between the oil filler cap and the back of the timing belt housing. (I'm thinking oil that missed the filler hole?!)

7 - Clutch bites in last 2" of travel, works fine with no slip.

8 - Service light on, despite having been service 2500km ago. ALso had a cam belt 2500km ago.....apparently!

9 - Only one key card. How do I get another and how much?

Despite all this, the car runs well, stops, starts fine etc. Most of the electrical gear fine.

Any thoughts would be gratefully appreciated.
