Re: Renault Espace - Buyer's Guides - Upside / Downside

Hi All,

I've not long ago bought a 2005 2.2DCI Dynamique. it's 2 owners from new and cover 130k. Full service history and has oil changed every 9000 miles from new. I've had a few issues since buying it. Mostly just routine stuff to be honest, rear calliper seized, broken rear spring, Aux belt tensioner, Aux belt bottom pulley. All above are common things and not major to fix. I have just done the Cam Belt myself though. After the Timing pulley location pin had snapped and was throwing timing all over the place. No internal damage though so new pin, new tensioner and new belt all sorted.
I am very impressed with the car overall, its very comfortable, I have a really bad back so this is important. Very roomy, love the panoramic sunroof, Economy is OK averaging around 37MPG. Wish it would do more, but at nearly 2 tons can't complain really. I think the important thing is service them well and change oil regularly and it will be fine.
