What should I look for in a used Renault Grand Scenic MPV?
Thus far, we’ve heard of relatively few common faults reported with the Grand Scenic – this is good news. However, this is one of those cars that’s liable to be trashed by someone’s most dearly beloved, so make sure you check the interior carefully for stains, cracked or broken plastics or scuffs.
Keep in mind, too, that every Grand Scenic features 20in wheels as standard – and wheels that big are always going to be more susceptible to kerbing. Make sure, therefore, that you inspect all the wheels carefully – minor grazes are nothing to worry about, but larger scrapes or chunks missing suggest heavy impacts and could mean the suspension within has been damaged.
