Renault Espace - 2005 2.2 dCi Buying Advice

Hi all
Thanks in advance for your replies.

I am looking to buy a 2005 Grand espace manual 2.2 privilege.
The one I am looking at has done 77k

What do I need to look out for apart from regular servicing?

Do they need a cam belt change? If so when and how much does this cost approximatly?

Any other things specific to the espace I should look for?

In my opinion whilst the Espace does have it merits such as comfort, fuel economy and room in all honesty it does tend have reliabilty issues once it gets beyond its manufacturers warranty and engine maintenance can be expensive plus the 2.2 diesel engines seems to have more than its fair share of troubles and failures with engine replacement cost of up to 6000.
Have a look through the link below and see how it rates.
