dont buy a 2.2 dci . cousin is a renault mechanic and he reckons he changes a 2.2 dci from a laguna or espace at least once a week for the same reasons as forementioned in recent thread . i would also say dont bother with 3.0 dci as i "drive" an espace 3.0 dci and its been in the workshop more than ive driven it. latest drama...engine replacement.
apparently its a known problem where water ****es out from coolant bottle from over pressure so ending up with overheating. havent seen car for 4 weeks now...
