You shouldn't have much trouble with a 2.0 petrol Espace - probably the pick of the bunch because the V6s and 2.2 diesels are a pig to work on, so even though they're fairly reliable, anything mechanical that goes wrong with them costs a fortune to fix. The 2.0 petrol is a good, reliable unit and the only problems you're likely to have are coils and the TDC sensor - both very easy jobs.

It sounds like you've picked a good car and I hope it turns out well for you
