Arrow 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.
