It's a renault clio. The warning light is an amber spanner.
As said, also ask for the Hisory of this car should they have it, if there is a service book in the car, make a note of the mileage when the car was purchase & do a MOT Check via the DVLA to see if the Speedo tally's with the MOT Certs, keep a log of any defect that occur since the purchase, you might need them in case of a claim / refusal, I would think the Warrantee is 3 Months?
The Amber spanner is the service warning light, it is either due for a service or did the car supermarket say they have serviced it for you ?. If it's the latter and it has been serviced then it looks like the mechanic hasn't ( or doesn't know how ) reset the service light.
