Hi,iam sorry i can't help you with 04 Espace but what i can help you with is what i have been reading on here for a few years and other sites and its like you say it does tend to be the bad that always pops up and like Truckbusuk says not many come on and praise there Mottah only when they have problems,as i said i can't speak for the 04 myself as i drive a 2002 Mk III Phase III 2.0 16V F4R Auto Expression that has been good to me apart from the normal wear and tear parts which from my local motor factors seen to be well priced and if iam beat my local independent do work for me,so when its time to buy all i will say is give it a good check over first and if at all possible get a good comprehensive warranty if possible?,good luck and please keep us posted to what you decide to do all the best Donald
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
