Smile Re: 2003-2005 Clio buying advice

the mk 2 isnt a bad bus really, but on that sort of miles u want to check cambelts been done, since they snap at just 1000 miles over, check for nice starting, and smooth running, also, make sure the gearbox isnt leaking, especialy the selector seal, renault designed the box so baddly, what would be a 10 minuite job on a leyland mini, is a box out and strip down on a clio. interiors are weak, so make sure its tidy, if any lights on dash after start, walk away, personaly id go for a late clio campus, without sunroof, those sunroofs creak and leak for fun, but aircon is tried and tested. hope that doesnt put u off..
