First job must be cambelt and water pump unless you have proof of it being done recently. Also check rear brakes as cylinders don't last long and rear brake shoe linings can become unbonded. Careful in buying replacements - Renault used 4 or 5 different manufacturers of brakes.
In a car park or similar try driving on full left and full right lock. Any clicking noise will be the cv joints. Exchange driveshafts used to be quite cheap if this problem is there.
Hope brake master cylinder is OK as they are a pig to get at if I remember rightly. If it has a sunroof the plastic guides used to break but Renault did a repair kit - don't know if they still will though.

Had full service, brake fluid and cooling system flushed and its driving a dream. All in all with insurance/service/MOT and buying the thing i've spent just over £750. proper bargain.
