Please help

Hi, I'm a new member, and looking for some advise. I was about to buy a Grand Espace 2.0 dci 175 bhp, automatic, 2008 plate with 85k miles on the clock. The current owner says it runs well but has warning lights saying the emissions need checked and the injector needs checked. Could this be an expensive fix? Should we consider buying or walk away and continue our search? Would really appreaciate someones advise. Have had an Espace in the past, and love their versatility.
Thank you for reading, and thanks in advance for your help.

Hi & welcome

I'd personally walk on by, if it has expensive issues which are visible now, what about the ones that are not.

It's your choice at the end of the day though.
Good luck

Re: Please help

Without a diagnostic check its hard to say ...does car have a DPF as that would throw up they fault if it needs a regen EGR would throw up that as well along with numerous expensive faults so as Chuffer says walk on

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together

Thank you. The seller has been up front and told us before going to view. It has a full service history, and he has offered to have it repaired and a full MOT too. Not many Grand Espace come up for sale, been looking for a while now.

If he is getting it repaired then may be worth a look if its a dealer
