Opinions on buying a 1.5 dci Scenic with high miles.
I have seen a lovely looking 2008 scenic 1.5 dci dynamic at a nearby garage, it has fully itemised service history including 6 renault stamps in the book I am told. I have not seen it or driven it yet, I got the info from their website.
Now it's only 4 years old or there abouts but it has done 152000 miles so obviously way above average for it's age. If it were a 1.9 dci I would be a little less concerned but what are the 1.5 engines like for high miles? Can they do 200k plus like bigger engines or are my concerns valid? It is up for £2750 so is cheaper than one with average mileage.
What are your views, especially those of you who have a car with the same engine in?
