Re: should i buy a grand espace 3.0 dci help ??

it sounds like we have another budding member of the 3.0 dci "owners club" on the way.

They are pants, total pants but when they run properly they are lovely. As was said earlier in the post I was sold on mine for the way it drove on the test and that panoramic roof. It's the closest you can come to a convertible people carrier.

It's just a shame about the 73 days spent in the garage and 3 grand in repair costs in it's first 18 months. Hopefully the next 18 months will be better.

The inspection is a good idea, as is the bit about using warranty cover as an excuse for it. Make sure that the check includes fuel rail pressure. Renault diags usually do but check to make sure.
