Hi i own a 2002 espace 2.0 16v epression with all the toys and its got a few mods aswell. I think it is very well priced for parts from motor factors and parts from renault are no dearer than any other dealerships.I do the work myself so i save there but i would of thought that my 2.0 16v expression that i own would be much easyer and quicker to work at than the bigger 2.2 desiels and v6 models.I pull a 1400kg caravan aswell. Iam very pleased with the performance ive fitted a ripspeed air filter and a electronic turbo and its chipped but i was more than happy with the performance before i did all that its just what i like to be at with my cars.I only have two of a family and my wife but i needed the space for bikes and wheel chair and other bits and bobs for when going away with the caravan.So all in iam happy with mine.I would be doing 25-30mpg i hope this helps you.I think when buying cars you can get a bad one or a good one just make sure its well serviced with low miles i think if you treat them with respect they will not hit your back pocket.My car is a automatic i would of bought a manual but i got my right leg amputated i think autos are a bit harder on fuel and not so good for towing the van but ive not got a chooce.Hope this helps all the best

2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
