I think you are confusing things a little tigs the g8t engine is actually pretty reliable overall i have seen them with 250k on them

The DCI that on the other hand has a self destruct function built in !

All the manual boxes will get noisy eventually but can do big miles if you use correct oil when doing clutch changes etc

Autos oh my god why do renault not realise that heat kills them and the coolers they use are crep

I have had 6 auto espaces this year and only one actually drove even then i sounded like someone had an angle grinder inside it lol

On the plus side i swapped the box with one from a 406 and i done 1500 miles to france and back faultlesley
Currently in mr espace's garage:
espace escort cabriolet subaru legacy clios etc !!
