Re: Buying a renault megane coupe 1.4. What should I look for?

Pretty much as this lot suggests
buying a Renault senic

A Scenic is much the same as a Coupe once you peel them.
1.4 are a bit lacking power wise. Sporty looks without the performance so have that in mind.
1.6 is quicker but no rocketship either. Both undergeared so motorway cruising is hardly relaxing.
The rear boot lock could be down to broken wires running alongside the left hinge.
You can open boot lock from inside boot if you fold rear seat down.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
