Is there an echo in here?

The 2.1 turbo diesel is a pretty good lump to be honest.Just make sure that the cambelt changes have been kept up,and make sure everything works,electrical problems are not uncommon on the age of Espace that your looking for.Also check for regular oil and filter changes.There aren't the turbo problems on the earlier diesels as there are on the later dCi's,but regular fresh oil will always help with engine reliability.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
