Re: Clio Diesel Buying Advice...

There are 3 65 80 and 100 bhp all are turbo charged I think the 65 does not have a inter cooler the 80 is fast enough and good on fuel not driven the others, but the 100 must fly, don't buy one with any lights showing on the dash when its running, if you look at the badge on the door DCi if all letters are black its a 65 small i in blue its a 80 Ci in blue its a 100.
It needs a cam belt at 72,000 miles or 5 years and if its done about 50,000 there's a good chance the discs will be french lacquered but they are not expensive but the belt is so try to get one fitted as part of the deal.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
