Re: Renault Clio 1.2 Authentique 05


some more info on the car would be good such as mileage service history etc. If it the Authentique Clio you are considering buying, you do realise that its the bottom of the range. The Clio Expression or Dynamique is better specced and would not cost you much more to buy. Get one with air con if you can. The 1.2 engine on the Clio Authentique is the 8v version not the better 16v version but it does not seem to suffer with the same coil failures as the 16v version. Make sure all the electrics work, cambelt is due every 5 years or at ex mileage, not sure of mileage but a lot of renault engines its every 72,000 miles.

Currently in Haree's garage:
I don't have a garage just a driveway. The Modus 1.6 16v VVT Dynamique Auto is my Grandparents car which I also drive.
