REliability is average, problems are susally engine management related. Parts are just so expensive for such a popular car, so dont go to main dealer for anything or you will get raped.

My brother owns a clio breakers so if you ever need any parts/help/advise if you do have problems then drop me a PM

Apparently a car hit the front earlier in the day but there was no visible damage, fault was likely cause by that
