Re: Which espace to buy?

Stay clear from Ford galaxy petrol ones. I have earned around 2k on buying and selling 2.0 DOHC engines in Bulgaria. A friend has one with 2.3 engine and auto box. Box is knackered.

If you go for Espace again - MK2 is the most reliable as long as it is manual and not v6. MK3 is still far superior to MK4. Stay clear from auto and DCI. My choice would be 2.0 16v manual from 98 to 2000. As long as you service the engine properly its very good. Always change all pulleys and water pump with the timing belt. Diesel 2.2 is not a bad choice either.

Hope this helps
