The 2.2 dCi is said to be the worst engine in the Renault range according to a lot of online discussions. HOWEVER - this is the most popular engine for fleet sales, and this fact could be quite meaningful. Hopefully, somebody with some knowledge of the problem might come across this thread - so subscribe to it to get an email alert

I've found reference to a 2.2 dCi recall to avoid some crankshaft pulley problem,but can't find any specific details. If you are looking for an Espace diesel, get the VIN number and you can check if any recall work has been done via a main dealer. There is also _supposed_ to be a panel of blue stickers inside the engine bay. If this is absent this could indicate that no recall work has been done
