MKIII/MKIV Espace advice...


I know that both the MKIII and MKIV Espaces had their fair share of issues (someone I know had one of each and had some crazy stuff go wrong) but for various reasons I am interested in getting one.

I've got a couple of questions (in addition to a previous thread I started) - firstly, which was the more reliable car, the MKIII or the MKIV? I always assumed newer = better but on places such as Honest John, owner satisfaction seems to be a bit higher with the MKIII.

Secondly, I know the 2.2dCi engine was notoriously unreliable but which engine (open to petrol or diesel, though I imagine diesel will be better at this age) is my best bet if I'm buying now? I'm only interested in manuals.
