Espace IV 2.0 DCi

I'm looking to buy a Diesel Espace 2007 or 2008 DCi 130/150/175. I would appreciate any general feed back as to reliability and any general faults to look out for. Is there an engine that is more reliable than the others?

I understand that this engine uses as timing chain and therefore does not have the expensive recurring cost of timing belt change as on the 2.2 diesel engine. Is this correct and are there any other major service items I should watch out for.

I was also thinking of going for the automatic if these are not too problematic.

Are there any other non-engine issues that present problems with this age of Espace?

Any feedback from owners or expert would be much appreciated. There appear to be some good value Espace's available unless reliability is an issue. Many thanks for any guidance
