Advice for buyers

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

The Megane Scenic is one of the better built Renaults of its era, but you may still find loose trim and hear rattles from all over the cabin. And, the rear seats can become loose on their mounts if they have not been properly reinstalled after being taken out, and their runners have been bent.

The engines are generally tough, but the gearchange can become even more vague and sloppy than it was when new. To cure this will require new bushes throughout the gear linkage - the parts won't be expensive but the labour might be.
