Overall it is a nice little car packing bags of fun
Judging by the service history nothing has gone wrong with the car except for the usual wear and tear.
I recently put the car through the 72,000 miles major service.
Everything was fine, except for a split timing belt.
I bought the car modified with:
K+N 52 induction kit.
Devil de-cat exhaust.
Magnex rear silencer.
+12 BHP Superchip.
Cool air flow kit.
30-45mm lowered suspension.
The power from this small car is quite shocking.
When you put your foot down in 2nd gear the car really takes off.
Handles very well, very agile.
Great fun to drive.
The interior is nicely laid out.
The seats are sporty and figure hugging.
The gear box feels solid along with the clutch.
Most people will agree that the Clio is a nice looking car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
