Re: Going to look at a Clio - Advice?
Insist on watching the exhaust when the engine is started both when cold - then when hot - lok for blue or black smoke. And don't pay too much. Check out the current values in the link below and then deduct at least £100.
Check the wheel in the boot to make sure it's pumped and no punctures.
Check it has more than one set of keys (got stung on this myself).
Check the bonnet catch as there's a dangerous fault where the boonet can fly open at high speeds.
Also, check for water ingress around the corners of the sunroof if it has one. Another notorious fault.
Hope that helps!
