Hello all.


Just been and bought a x reg scenic 1.6 rxe.

93k miles FSH

one owner

£2200 plus the wifes battered 12 yr old micra with 110k on the clock.:d

I could not see much wrong with the car and the garage is doing a cam belt, full mot and six months tax.

However i have read some stories on here of head gasket failure that have got me worried. I did check the oil filler cap for any signs of emulsified oil but could not see any and i also had the top off the coolant expanion bottle to smell for any oil etc but i think it was ok. Took the car for a test drive and the coolant level had gone from min to just under max, no signs of any being spat out from what i could see.

Hopefully i have made a good purchase.:)


Picking it up at the weekend.

Welcome Rob

I recently bought my wife a scenic which is also her first Renault and we haven't had any major problems thus far (touches something wooden) ;)

Thank you all for the welcome:)

The Renault will be mainly used for the wife and kids to ferry themselves around in

Thus keeping them out of my beloved Skoda Octavia:d

Headgasket failure is not generally a problem on your engine,so I wouldn't be overly concerned.:)
