Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Renault Grand Scenic MPV?

Since the Grand Scenic is a family car, your attention should be on the interior. Make sure the seats fold and recline as they should. Check for any stains, rips or holes in either the seat fabric or the carpets, and look for any broken bits of plastic trim. You should also check that all the electrics work and that the TomTom sat-nav card is still in the car, otherwise your sat-nav system won’t work and you’ll have to visit your Renault dealer to buy a new one.

The loading lip on the rear bumper is nice and low on the Grand Scenic to ease loading and unloading, but it is still susceptible to scuff marks from buggies and bikes as they are taken in and out of the boot. Check the alloy wheels as well for any kerb damage and examine the bumpers and bodywork for any parking damage.
