Although the poll wasn't particularly inspiring when 35%+ of you wouldn't buy a Renault again.

Maybe I shud just go get another Galaxy.........I did love the last one!!!
You could have tried the search facility too.....

buying espace 2001

Just one of a number of threads about buying an Espace 3.

Oh,and just to add,the V6 petrol is a fantastic engine mated to a pretty awful gearbox (auto only).Maintenance costs on a V6 can be a nightmare too,check for cambelt change history as replacement is monsterously expensive.

Personally the 2.2 dCi would be the one to go for,although injector problems aren't uncommon and the engine does tend to confuse people as it has a few strange foibles.
