My 1st Anniversary with my 1998 Renault Espace
Insurance renewal time and it reminded me that I have almost owned the Espace for a year!
It started badly with a slipped cam belt, several sets of glow plugs and the cherry on the cake £450 to replace a gear cable that should cost £30.
That £450 gets split roughly as £300 to renault, - cheers Renault, £100 to have car picked up and towed to garage ( stuck in reverse ) and not forgetting the tax man.
And yet "it seems like yesterday when I thought I would never buy a renault" as the TV advert says....
- oh it was yesterday and today and throughout the last year.
£300 for a gear cable sums it up!!! Not only does it break but Renault is there to slap you in the face when it does.
Everybody told me not to and I thought how bad can Renault really be. Now I know - BAD.
Currently in antalp's garage:
