Hello and welcome to the forum.

The Espace will be pot luck in all honesty.They can be prone to reliability issues,and although I used to believe that the 2.2dCi was a good engine,we have had a number of problems reported on them recently so maybe it's taken it's time to show it's real self rather than the 1.9dCi which was a bit of a nightmare right from the start!.

You could be lucky and your Espace will be fine,but in general I would say that they were below average in the reliability stakes.

As for the Megane,what engine does it have,what mileage and is there any history with it?.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
