A Quick bit of advice

Hey people,

Sorry if this is in the wrong place. First time visiting these forums.

Today i went out and looked at buying a 60 plate Clio 1.5 dCi Expression Eco2.
And i wondered if anyone would be able to give me some advice on this car? i am looking to find out some information about common faults, reliability etc. The main use will be to transport the kids to and from school (12 miles a day) every day and pick me up from the train station (20 miles) + weekend jaunts when i am at home.

If anyone can let me know of any common problems etc this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there and welcome.

I've moved your thread into a section whereby fellow Clio owners will be best-placed to give you some quality replies.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

You'll be fine. The cars seem very reliable and the economy is superb. Expect in the high sixties at least on a long run.
I have ordered a new equivalent, an Expression dCi with the optional Eco Pack fitted. I will let you know how I get on with it, but I have to wait an incredible three months for delivery.
