Looking to get a Clio Expression '03 - what to look out for?
Hi all - my wife has recently passed her test and is looking to upgrade from the Ka she was using for between lessons to practise.
She's spotted an '03 Expression 53800 miles in a local reputable small independent and we had a look today. I'd read the main problems were electrics and suspension - a push on the body work found no creaks or slow springs and as far as I could tell the electronics and electricals were ok. I checked the
cap for white 'cream' as well. We've put down a refundable deposit subject to a test drive tomorrow.
Any hints from anyone for what to look or listen for in the drive tomorrow? Have seen you can get the dashboard to do a self-diagnostic - is this worth doing? Are Clios rust magnets in any particular area? We've not had a Renault before so need any hints we can get
