It also seems that the older it's getting the better it's becoming. Now on 103,000 mls and seems quieter, smoother and MPG regularly moves into the low 50's but general running around is providing mid-high 40's.
I am tempted by the 3ltr grand espace initiale but do I really need a 3ltr?
I know how you feel! I feel the same way about my Avantime. The only other car I'd consider at the moment would be the Citroen C6 - Soooo comfy!
