I bought the car 2 1/2 years ago as a one owner car with a full Renault history with it, and 108k on the clock. So in the time of owning it, I have clocked up nearly 35k, most of it trouble free, and it's been a good car.
It's pulled a caravan, race car, been to France, and in the main, never missed a beat and I'm assuming it's the original turbo, so when I read the stories of lower mileage cars blowing their turbo's, I'm quite pleased.
I could drive it into a scrap yard and get around £250 for it, but it's in good condition and I then have to replace it, but I'm loathe to do so, but the cost of the repairs are going to cost what it's worth.
I've located a local turbo re-builder who give a 2 year guarantee on repairs, and I'm guessing their T's and C's will be that a reputable garage must do the re-build, which there is, so I kind of guess it's my safety net if things go Pete Tong, but I have also read of 2nd turbos going as well, with as little as 22 miles from the re-build.
If everything goes ok, then I'll probably keep it another 12 months, so that I can get the benefit of the re-build, and then sell it.
