36,000 trouble free miles in Espace

Booked my 36k service on the 2nd in Dover, had the car since June 05 from new, and only work it has required has been a pair of new struts for the tailgate.

Considering the Jeremy Clarkeson show (AKA Top Durge) slagged off the reliability of the Espace, it seems to prove him wrong (again).

Get 31mpg average, replaced front tyres at 35.5k last week (140each at KwikFit - they beat any other price in town), think 36k is good from a set of front tyres on a front wheel car of this size.

All in all very happy bunny.

I have also just bought a welder (other car is an off road landrover (need I say more)) and first welding project will be a 3 shelf small trolley to put the seats on when not in the car (they are very big and dont stack) so if any onther Espace owners have done similar thing, please let me know, or if anyone wants me to send em pictures of the finished article etc...

Ho Hum, and its off to work we go ....
