Re: Buying 2nd Hand Megane
Mk1 or Mk2
Unless it can be proved otherwise a cam belt and water pump change will not be long before its due NOT AT ALL CHEAP, & catastrophic if ignored.
If it's a Mk 2
I'd want to hear the engine started up from stone cold, the first start of the day would be good, listen for a bag of nails that may go away when the engine gets warm in which case the dephaser pulley could be on the way out, this is not cheap either.
