Grand Espace - what to look for?

Hi, really sorry to ask but have looked to see if any other posts but must be dumb as I can't see any.

Thinking of buying a Grand Espace. Either a Mk3 or 4. Going to be full of 3 dogs so not convinced getting a newer one is the best idea. Anyway, aside from usual caveats, which is best to consider in terms of running costs? Specifically.

Mk 3 - is the non dCi engine any good?

Mk4 - is the 3.0 dCi significantly thirstier than the 2.2?

I have it in my head that Renault auto boxes are best avoided. Is this fair to say?

Is it worth considering a petrol engined Mk4?

thanks and sorry!
