Renault Espace - Engines - 2.2Dti engine - Thrust washer failure
Has Renault solved the problem that apparently blights the "previous shape" Espace 2.2 diesel, where the thrust washer on the crankshaft usually fails at around 80,000 miles resulting in a bill for a new engine? There were widespread reports of this failure a couple of years ago on many forums etc, sufficient to put me off buying an Espace (I bought a Galaxy to accompnmay the Scenic instead). I'd like a current shape Espace diesel (if I had the money!) but won't buy until I know that the problem has been fixed.
Any forum members know about this issue in more detail?
