We have a 3.0dCi from new & find it excellent. Auto box works well and is effortless. Just as it should be.
Cruise control is very useful, especially in keeping to speed limits. Seats are heavy but solid.
Fuel consumption is generally around 30mpg. Cruises nicely at high speed & is very quiet.
Not had any serious problems - just niggles which the dealership has fixed.
The reason we bought new was in order to spec it up & keep till it dropped. The standard model didn't have the features we wanted many of which are standard on the cheaper & noisier 807.
Happy to answer any questions you may have.
Currently in John J's garage:
Family car - 2004 3.0dCi Grand Espace. Fun car - Calibra 4x4 Turbo
