Wouldn't go that far when compared to a Galaxy!

Funny you should say that, Galaxy was the second on the list when we were hunting for a bus, they just didn't inspire me as much though.

It was one of only a couple that ticked most of my boxes. The reliability of the Espace does worry me a little as there's just so much that can go wrong. I agree with truckbusuk though, the new Espaces are simply light years ahead of everything else when they work OK. We had to settle for a mark 3 espace when we really wanted a mark 4, we just couldn't afford one as all Espaces are heavily overpriced for the most part.

Rest assured though, if I win 5k on the lottery I know what I'll be buying with it. and it'll get the most comprehensive tyre kicking I have ever given a car, one single problem and I will be offski.

Hope that answers your question a bit more Nick.
