Re: Potential Espace buyer - Advice please?

I think whatever the engine you are taking a gamble with electrics and build quality but when I was looking at buying one the 2.0 16v petrol engine seemed the most reliable, the biggest issue suggested was the coils which weren't too expensive to deal with. It's not exactly speedy (although my Mk 3 Grand went quicker than my standard Mk 4) and you'll only be getting MPG in the mid 20s but I found it more than acceptable and very comfortable. Have a think about seat belts though, I think if you have the middle seat in the middle row then you'll only get a lap belt.
