Re: espace mk3 or mk4?


I would say your best bet would be a late Mk III with full service history, by far the best Espace to date but that's maybe because Ive now owned a 2002 2.0 16v Auto now for 5 years, so this maybe a little biased,

Ive had 5 years of trouble free motoring from my Espace apart from normal wear and tear parts failing,iam sorry i can't give advice on diesels as i wouldn't touch one with a barge poll for two reasons... i just don't like diesels nor would i entertain a Renault diesel engine purely because what Ive read on here over the last 5 years,

As for MPG i wouldn't expect to much as you have to remember these cars weigh a little over 1600kg so no matter what engines fitted it ain't going to give you great MPG unless you driving with a light foot or do lots of motorway driving,

Hope this helps Don
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
