Seeking a 1999 - 2005 Clio 1.3 - What to look for?

I am on the lookout for a new car and really want to buy either a Corsa or a Clio. The fact I have joined this forum would suggest I am more keen on getting a Clio.

The years I have been looking at are 1999 to 2003 with a 1.2 litre engine.

All I need to find is a car that I can run for a few years to commute to work etc... by that time I will be over 25 and should have lower insurance premiums.

My budget was originally about 1500 (at this time I was looking for 2001 - 2003 model Clios, but seen as I only need a car that will last a year or two with little problems I have lowered my budget to 1000.

The reason I am here is to try and find out what I should be looking for, what I should avoid, what common problems are for this age group as the miles roll on etc...

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
