Red face A love hate relationship

That's what I've got with my old Espace. I love its size, the seating, the colour, the dashboard. I hate the plastic rear bumper which frequently gets damaged. I loathe the pedals because my size 13 feet often leave me braking and accelerating - at the same time..........
I detest the gearbox. After expensive clutch replacement and frequent returns/arguments with the garage it runs ok for a short period, then gets stickier and stickier.
Also, the engine has periods when it regularly misses after about 5 minutes on the road - but, so far, only in the winter......... and it's getting worse. It's petrol injection.
Would I get another? Probably not, because of the pedal configuration - was it made for very long legged pixies?
Any advice regarding the engine misfiring?
