Currently I have a 99T Espace 2.0 16v Alize, that I've had for almost 2 years, 78k, just serviced, tax and MOT'd a scuffed rear bumper but it has parking sensors added - all is well with the world! Considering I've replaced the hydraulic clutch connection 12 months ago and it is all going well but I have been offered a newer diesel one....
a 2.2 Dci 2001/Y 83k Race edition. FSH, MOT and 1 mnth's Tax. I've driven it and it might need the
valve cleaned or disconnected (DIY), and there is a little
whine. The steering wheel is offset from straight (DIY fix), and the external boot release is stuck and the boot wont open.
Thing is it has been offered to me for £2700, which I think is well below market value. And looking on Autotrader ours is worth in the region of £2400 private sale. I can bank roll the purchase on a 0% credit card for funding until ours is sold so there is no additional costs to change , but reading quite a few dissatisfied owners of the 2.2 Dci has made me question if thi is worth while or is it 'Better the Devil You Know'?
