Re: Clio Diesel Buying Advice...

Front springs seem to be a common fault and the EGR valve but it only takes a hour or so to remove and clean, at 90k brakes, check the discs, tyres at 90k it will be on its second set or wanting some, leaking sun roof have a good look at that, they can gum up the piston rings so make sure you see it start from cold if poss I think this as something to do with the long service intervals, I change the oil roughly at half the interval about 9k miles and when you drive it there should not be any blue smoke or turbo whine, just all the things you would look at on any turbo Diesel.

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.
