Re: Looking at buying a Renault - opinions ?
If a garage is selling a car with a problem, you can be sure of 2 things;
1. it won't be a cheap fix, otherwise they would do it themselves.
2. it won't be the only problem.
Also, yes - regular servicing obviously helps, but when you buy a 2nd hand car, it isn't a clean sheet - you inherit all the use/abuse the previous owners have foisted on the car.
I wouldn't risk it at all.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
2005 FIAT Ducato 2.8JTD LWB Gran Volume, 2000 Kawasaki ZZR 1100 D7 'fullpower' in black + full GIVI & KAPPA luggage, 2007 MB R-Class 320 CDi Sport LWB uprated by Brabus to 300Bhp don't know if there's a 155mph limiter - will be fun finding out! 2004 Mercedes Vaneo 1.7 CDi Ambiente 7-seater
