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

The Clio is not the hardiest of superminis, but in recent years it has emerged as the best Renault in reliability surveys.

This is backed up by the JD Power survey, where the Clio's quality and reliability were rated as average. It would have performed rather better had it not been for a high number of reported engine problems.
