Re: Are Espaces as Unreliable as the reviews say?

Espaces are not as bad as the web suggests, as you say only the bad bits are reported, but in general renaults have there more than there fair share of probs. But having said that I have had to Lagunas that had no probs at all a 1.9 ( suposed to eat turbos ) and A 2.2 ( supposed to have manifold probs ).
Get a good one and all will be well, get a bad one and well youve seen the reports, just be thankful you dont have a Ford cos judgeing by what I see on the FOC forum dont get a Fiesta or a Mondeo or any Ford that has a diesel engine, the least faults I see on any forum Im on are the Skoda Roomsters and the Alfa Mito's

The older I get the better I was, must be mad not got enough money to be excentric
