Re: Which Espace?
Many thanks d'Espace, Big Dav
Well, we've purchased a 2006 3.0 Initiale, 92k miles. I did floor it under load, and didn't see what I'd call excessive smoke. It passed its MOT emissions test, not sure how relevant that is.
It got 30mpg at 70, or 35mpg at 80 over 10 miles each on the M25. Go figure!
It's the facelift 2006 with the 6-speed auto, but I can't see any plate on the engine. How can I tell if it's one of the hand-grenades? It's a 1-keeper ex-lease with main dealer stamps.
We've got a Warranty Direct, with main dealer 100% labour and 50% parts cover.
This is a run-into-the-ground purchase.
Have I just condemned my family to a future of roadside misery and debtor's prison?
