Hi i drive the 2002 2.0 16v expression Espace with the auto gear box with full service but not through choice i just have to drive a car with a auto gear box because iam disabled i would of then bought the car with a manual box. Ive now had the car six months and not had a problem yet touch wood but i only found out the other day that the first owner of the car had the complete gear box replaced at 27k but i really dont no why?? i would put it down to a recall and not a failing box i hope iam doing around 30mpg but my car is also chipped so it would probely do more if it wasn't.I hope this help you choose and remember to choose with your head and not your heart
Currently in Donald's garage:
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.
