Re: Which espace to buy?

I would stick with a 2.0 Manual Mk3 (around S reg)

Reason being is that the dCi is awful! Big problems with turbos, EGR Valves and clutches.

Then an automatic will end up needing a replacement gearbox, as my V6 Espace did as soon as it reached 100k miles!
Currently in MéganeDynamique's garage:
Avantime 3.0 V6 24v Privilège Auto, Vel Satis 3.0 dV6 Initiale, Vel Satis 2.2 dCi Auto Privilège, Laguna II 3.0 V6 24v Dynamique, Mégane II 2.0 VVT Dynamique, Mégane 1.6 Auto Privilège+ Convertible, Clio 1.9 RT-D
