Grand Voyager or Grand Espace

Hi Chaps,

My wifes got a Scenic Mk1 Phase 2, which we have some minor issues with, but me I'm a fan of heavy metal

I've always liked the 1997-2003 Espace, and did buy one, buy the garage found a coolant leak, and then a gearbox problem, so I bought a Chysler Grand Voyager 3.3

Loved that old bus ... until redundancy caused me to hand it back

5 years on, I want another large MPV, so Grand Espace, or Grand Voyager approx 2000 year.

Warranty companies had Renault at 6th worst and Chrysler at 4th best for reliability.

The GV looks good outside, but inside is limited on how to arrange seats.

The GE looks okay outside, but I like the seating options inside.

I tend to like to snooze and lounge in my car at lunchtimes, chuck the dogs it at night, and I prefer the high up drive as it makes me calmer.

Have u ever tried to snooze in the back of a Scenic --- ouch !

As for the GE , i'd be interested in a 16v 2.0, or 3litre V6 RXE, privilidge etc
As for the GV, i'd be the 3.3 LX

Outside of routine servcing, timing chains etc, is that gen of Espace THAT bad and what would you do !?
