Thanks Noel, so if you don't have a warranty on a ~5k Espace, a major repair is a write-off. Scrap value.

Again then it comes down to if you have a youngish one (50k miles on a 3l diesel = young, to this Volvo owner anyway). We are only doing 5k a year (it's basically a holiday car), so over 6 years / 30k miles we could buy another Espace outright with the price of a warranty.

Or am I missing something here?
