hi


in january this year, my beloved dci clio met a snowy end and was written off in an accident. i've been looking to replace it and picked up a 2.0l D4D corolla T3 116bhp. full dealer history and 70k miles. totally different to the clio, of which i will have fond memories.

so just wanted to thank all of the members (especially my fellow irish mucker madnoel10 :d )who've helped me with various issues over the years, and say farewell to those i met on various meets. it has been great.

new motor





cheers

Nice looking car but doesn't have the sleek look of the Clio in my opinion but hey good luck with it anyways.
I considered the same car but when I read about the potential engine probs I decided the Honda was likely to be much less bother. Still got my old faithful 1994 Clio diesel though.

Happy motoring:)

Dual mass flywheels were a problem on diesel engined Rav4s, if its the same engine, same potential problems.

Type dual mass flywheel toyota into any search engine for an explanation.

On the upside I drive an 11 year old Avensis which has never given me any problems.

P.S. Don't leave the forum, we sold our Scenic years ago, you may still be able to contribute, or enjoy other threads on here.
