Hi everyone, I'm looking at at 2009 clio 197 with 50k mileage and i kinda fell in love with it.
The owner said he never did any major service on it, only the regular 7k check and oil change (seen in the logbook as well), so it's still having the original belts (the accessories belt didn't look cracked or anything). Which is worrying, for me, at least.
I did feel some slight resistance when changing gear from 5th to 4th, but I'm kinda sure it went away after starting the car.
Otherwise, car was running great, cornering was awesome, breaks were fine and it did leave me with a good impression. I intentionally took some potholes and i didn't hear any weird noises (might be wrong, tho).
Now, I've never owned a sporty car, I've only had normal cars, so i would need some advice from you. Would you think a car like this would be worth buying? Price would be 9k, but i've read some threads about faulty gearboxes and 2k aud for replacing belts and stuff and I'm a little reserved.
So, what do you say, would this car be good value for my hard earned monies?
