Wink Espace IV 1.9 or 2.2


Which Diesel Espace is best the 1.9 or the 2.2?

I'm considering getting a used Espace 2004 or 2005 era. Anyone got any comments!

Re: Espace IV 1.9 or 2.2

Both the 1.9 and 2.2 have their common faults,but if it were me I'd have the 2.2. Turbo failures on the 1.9 are pretty common,and this can lead to allsorts of problems/costs.We are now getting a few problems with the 2.2 reported,mostly oil leaks caused by the inlet manifold cracking/manifold gasket splitting,but on the whole the bigger engine is better.

I would defiantely buy an aftermarket warranty with the car,the Espace comes with many expensive faults built in!.Buy very,very carefully too.......

There are a number of threads on here about buying an Espace 2.2dCi,have a read through them and see if you still want one.
