Buying advice on 1.4 Kangoo?

Hi all,

Just joined the forum as I'm looking to buy a V plate 1.4 Kangoo tomorrow.

My initial look over the car revealed some minor surface rust on outer sills, exhaust blowing on joints.

The biggest fault an oil leak which the seller claimed was the crank shaft oil seal and he says it's been done along with the timing belt and tensioner, but I'm a little suspicious because if it were me I'd wipe the black oil off as I was doing the job so I'll inspect closer tomorrow.

Are there any known faults with this model I should be looking out for?

Many thanks.

A Newbie.
