I'm new to the whole car world (started driving 4 months ago), and I've got a '98 Clio MkII (1st phase). I've got a service coming up - and I'm going to have a crack at it myself. However, it's recently hit 84,000 miles. I'm just wondering if this is considered 'high' mileage? I couldn't really see why it is, but there are a number of reasons for my scepticism. First of all, it came with no service history at all (I bought it at just under 79,000 miles). And when I say none, I mean literally none - it just about has its MoT certificates, and currently has an MoT on it, as of about a month ago. I'm curious as to whether I need the cambelt changing, as I'm aware that in these kinds of cars it's recommended to change it every 40,000 miles or so. I'd like to change the spark plugs, too, as it's sometimes not starting up first time. Also, it was owned by another teenager for three years before I had it, which I guess could either be a bad or good thing, as he could have done the servicing himself.
I'm going on a bit here, so I'll just cut to the chase. What do I need to service at this mileage, if I need to service it at all, and would it be worth me planning to keep the car for another few years because of the mileage?
Thanks for any help!
