Re: Thinking of buying an Espace

I LOVE my 2.2dt (1998 reg ) Apart from all the onboard computers, it's literally a lego car, ( parts replace easily and generally come off and go on with out to much trouble, mind you saying that i am having a break from replacing the anti roll bar links as the first one is being stubburn and does not want to come off!!!!) I have had 2 espace's now and would not dream of owning different car, they are so useful ( i have moved house with one!!, ) and you can fit a double matteress in the back, as long as you take all the seats out!! yes they are french, yes they can be a pig sometimes to fix and trying to find parts can be futile - and im not paying renault prices!!!! 140.00 for a top radiator hose!!!, 20 off ebay !!, but they are the best!, I would go for a phase 3 dt rarther than a phase 4 dci as i have heard nothing but problems with them on here.
Hope this helps

happy motoring
