Thanks for the replies.

The car is in Spain, where the prices are much higher for 2nd hand cars.

However, £3300 for a UK one of the same age/mileage makes me think I could be paying well over the odds.

I am actually going off the idea - I don't want the possible expense of continuous repairs.

Cheers all.

I'd say that the Espace isn't any more or less reliable than most other cars, I'm sure if you went on a VW forum, you'd see a similar mix of problems and issues. At the end or the day they all use the same systems.

As to pricing, many moons ago, the prevailing wisdom was to buy second hand left hand drive cars in Holland. I've no longer any idea how difficult it's to import a car into Spain, but given EU regs shouldn't be too bad.
