Tell me about it. Gone from RWD Hi-Ace with a tyre scrubbing lock (Seriously). To a FWD Tragic. Good job my drive is onto a private road, first time I manouvered the caravan. Took me about ten attempts to get it in, no damage, just major embarrassment.

My Brat's Mate, Loves Espaces, keeps buying summat else, but always goes back, Just flogged a very tidy Zafira & got another 02 Reg Espace. Like any car really, if you get a good un. But you never can be sure until you've bought it. If you read all the problems on one make Forums, you'd never buy any car.
My take on Renaults, a few common weak spots, but most problems are down to either poor servicing or water ingress.
