Re: yet another newbie

I wouldn't necessarily say to go for a higher mileage, just saying if the right one comes up with an extensive service history then don't discount it

Bodywise, not really sure, don't think rust is an issue as it is with, say, Fords. Not seen many a post on here regarding bad rust. Obviously, you wanna make sure you check the bodywork anyhow, structure wise as well, the same as you would with any other car. After all, what goods a 5* rating if you buy a cut and shut eh

As I mentioned, electrical gremlins are Renaults biggest problem so make sure you check that absolutely everything and I mean everything works correctly. Don't be shy, you're the buyer and you have a right to check everything, doesn't matter how long it takes or how insignificant it may seem. Sometimes the smallest thing like a rear window not opening can become a real drag once you own the car

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
