    Default Signum 3.0 V6 cdti advice needed!

    Hi guys. I am hoping to purchase a signum 3.0 v6 cdti during the week. I have test driven the car, and was very impressed with the way it drove and obviously the power it had was incredible. I am going back for a second viewing with my mechanic, and just wondered if there is anything that we should be looking for? Its a 2004 on 94,000 miles. I know the timing belt is due at 100k so not far off for that job. Also, could anyone tell me some honest mpg figures for there v6cdti's please as I keep reading various figures. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks, Adam.

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Hi mate I'm currently doing a roughly 50/50 drive and getting average 29mpg

    When I done more motorway I was getting 42mpg

    things up check would be the standard vec/ signum problems.

    take it for a second test drive. Go to 50ish in 4th an slow down to approx 40 an accelerate hard. Ensuring you still have full power.

    make sure idle idle is steady and do your best to look for signs of oil & coolant leaks.

    use the timing belt a bargaining tool.

    it's not expensive (about 70 from autovaux) and about 1.5 hours labour

    I do mostly country roads and motorways in mine (very little in town) and am consistently averaging 37/38mpg. I don't hang around, but I'm not a boy-racer (and mine's an auto). I've only done about 3k since buying mine, but really can't fault the engine. I've had diesels before that have had more BHP but none that have as nice power delivery as the 3.0cdti.
