Re: Possible Grande Espace Owner
If the cam belt is old it could fail any time so get a disclaimer signed if you borrow the car to try it out. If I were buying anything with a dodgy cam belt it would not turn a wheel until the belt is changed. Over cautious? maybe but Ive experienced new toy syndrome (not a Renault) and a broken belt after 2 days.
Also check the air con and alectric hand brake work properly. If OK then its likely to have been reasonably well looked after (if not by current owner).
Currently in Ben Detoy's garage:
Espace 2,0T (2005) - BMW R1200GS Adventure (2008) - Suzuki GT750 "Kettle" (1976) - Cannondale Jekyll 1000 (2004)
