My advice for a three years or older car is avoid the renault dealers.

I own an Espace, 2.2Dci, 01 reg. 63k.

Cambelt at an indpendent up here is <250.

I use HiQ servicing, fixed menu pricing. My bro uses the ex Halfords chain fixed price servicing.

Rear exhaust, from just behind the cat was 129 in june, again at Hi Q.

Renault dealers here re 75 hr labour and Land Rover dealers 95 hr.

The air con is about right. I always goto Kiwk fit get a tyre price, phone around the other chains and lie about the price eg drop what kwik fit say by a tenner. They always say that the have other tyres cheaper but have to order them in. Normally get one for 65-75.

So it reads that it has a problem with the exhaust, so i thought i would ring my local dealer and establish how much a compleate replacement would be, including cat. While i was there i added a few things to the shopping list to see what future costs i may be looking at:

72k Service [includes all fluids] 370.00
Cambelt change 842
Cat back exhaust 471
Cat 541
Front and rear discs and pads fitted 660
x4 new tyre's premium brand 400
Air con re-gas 80

Total cost for a 'few bits' 3364

Suddenly the car appears less of a desirable used car. I will consider all my options before buying but it is amazing how quickly things add up with a few replacement parts!

Be aware buyers
you will get a cat from an after market exhaust place cheeper than that after all 1 yr warranty from who ever you get it from

Had a few problems woth my Espace as well.

The cat had gone and the disks and pads needed replacing.
Total cost approx 400 inc labour and a service thrown in as well.

This was Ford Rapid Fit in Derby, so well worth the visit as the dealer was after a lot more !!! Definitely ask around.
