I am thinking of buying a second-hand Renault Scenic, but I've heard the horror stories about window motors, coils and electrics. Did Renault sort out these problems? If so what year was that?

I am thinking of buying a 2005 Renault Grand Scenic Diesel, would you recommend it? Are there problems with electrics or the engine or any other problems I should know about?
Should I go for a Citroen Xsara Picasso 1.6 diesel instead? I need room for 3 baby seats. Money is tight so cannot go above 2005.

Hi, congrats on new website, hope it works well. I'm looking to change an '05 Toyota Rav 4 for a 7 seater, but don't want a boring looking rectangle type automobile! Any ideas for a decent 7 seater that looks good as well, maybe '07/'08, max spend €15k. Thanks.

Hello, I drive a 2008 1.3-litre diesel Astra with a six-speed gearbox on a fairly normal driving pattern: start, stop, traffic-jams etc. and M50 motorway driving (in which I use the cruise control). What sort of fuel economy should I expect?
