2003 Renault Kangoo 1.2 Advice

Hello all!

I am looking to purchase a 2003 Renault Kangoo with a 1.2L engine from a car yard in Rochdale.
This vehicle is for a cross continental rally from the UK to Mongolia that I am planning to undertake in July.

I live in Australia and am unfortunately stuck trying to buy this car online. I do not have the slightest idea about Renault automobiles and their mechanicals. I have however just organised for an AA inspection to be completed on the vehicle (I hope they are worth the money )

Could anyone provide me with some insight into this vehicle...

What are the 1.2L engines like?
What are the 5 speed gearboxes like?
Are the clutches reliable/solid?
Cooling system issues?
Are there any inherent problems with this model vehicle that I should be looking out for?
Do you think it will successfully transport me and two other aussies to Mongolia?

Any information that you can impart to me would be greatly appreciated.
