Smile 2002 Espace running costs

Before I bought my used 02.2002 espace in July 2005 I read some articles on the internet by dissatified espace owners and prepared myself for a car with worse reliability than my previous vehicle, an Isuzu.
2 1/2 years later and with 38,00 miles on the clock Im surprised that this is actually a cheap car to run.
All servicing I've done myself, Ive paid 10 to see if there were any fault codes( there were none)
Rear brake discs rusted quickly and needed replaced after just 40,000 miles ( (120 for pads and disks )
however that is probably my driving style as my previous vehicle was the same.
Plus I forked out 200 to get the auto trans fluid replaced in 2006, allthough it was not due, better safe than sorry.
Currently in jack daniels's garage:
2005 Grand Espace 2.0T auto and a couple of others
