65k seems to be the sweet spot for engine mileage, in terms of performance. On the Williams that is.

KS, 0200 that has done 142,000, have you had a new engine if so when, if no what have you had done to it?.

I thought mine had done 79,000 miles, but have really checked paperwork, could be 125,000. the previous owner and I are in discussion :twisted: The car has definitely been clocked.

Feel a bit of a dickhead, to trusting I guess, trouble is the insides are clean and it runs well, keep you posted not very happy with myself!!

Did you pay top money for it Nick? Dealer / private?

A trip to solicitors in order I feel.

KingStromba

If its been clocked by a dealer i would say they could be in big trouble (depending on French law, if thats where you bought it)

Paid alot, secondhand cars in france are 30% more than in UK, bought privately. Not sure whether to ask for money back or keep car get sizable refund.

Play it by ear, trust me! I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE IN THIS LIFE OR THE NEXT. More annoyed with myself than him, actually thats bollocks. KS said something in a earlier thread about take a good look a the seller, should have listened to alarm bells. I,m 42 and a man of the world, oh and a F****N impatient must have it now T**T :roll: :roll: :( :oops:

Most people are when they've got a pocket full of cash and are viewing something they've set there heart on buying. Your not the first and won't be the last. Mileage isn't so important. As long as your happy with the car then enjoy.

Oh and make sure you get your revenge :twisted:

If it's any consolation, that sounds familiar to me too. My downfall was an Uno Turbo some years ago - felt fantastic during the test drive. But cost me close to 2000 pounds to keep it running for the 8 months that I owned it.

In your shoes, I would keep the Clio and try to get a refund. And use the refund to take the car back to good running condition. Once that is done, with regular and fairly fastidious maintenance, the Clio can go a very long way.
