If the car has a full service history,and looks in good shape,then you should be OK.Mileage isn't as big a consideration as it used to be,just make sure you check the car over carefully.The earlier Diesel and Turbo Diesel engines are near bullet proof,but the weak spot is generally the gearboxes.Make sure it's quiet on a road test,and that it doesn't 'crunch' into any of the gears.Interiors are also weak,so expect a few sqeaks and bits of loose trim.

Apart from that,the Espace is a damn good car.Good luck!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
