I bought a new Scenic 150 three years ago having persuaded Renault to take back the 2.0 petrol with its mysterious problems.
I've been very happy with it, but with 50k on the clock and my wife and daughter bringing ever more things with them on holiday, I am considering a new Espace or Grand Espace 175.
So a few questions if I may.
To carry bikes I had to install a towbar on the Scenic - is this Espace similarly problematic in this area (I want to keep the roof for a top box)?
Any issues with the 2.0 150 or 175 engine I should know about? e.g. Is the current one likely to start costing big bucks (although I haven't found any postings on here about it)?
Any major downside on the Espace or Grand Espace? There don't seem to many long-term reviews.
Any insights on when the new one is likely to appear?
