Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Renault Clio hatchback?

Electrical faults are quite common on the Clio, so make sure all the electrics work – or at least, make sure you know how much they’re going to cost to fix if you don’t.

It’s also important to make sure there’s evidence of regular servicing, preferrably in the form of a full service history with evidence of the cambelt having been replaced whenever it was due to have been. The cambelt isn’t a cheap job, and the intervals are short, so some people will have skimped on this – but if it breaks, it can ruin the engine and lead to a costly bill that might be more than the car is worth.
