1999 Renault Espace
High consumption (13 L / 100 km)
Gear synchronisation broke at 140000 km (high cost)
Have been told that cardan has to be replaced (high costs!)
1st gear NEVER worked properly (car stalls when not starting very carefully) (PS: Yes, with other cars I managed not to stall :-) )
Easy to drive car, which is fun to drive.
We used it often as a camper, as the back is big and great and flat, perfect to sleep in with 2 persons (if not giants, quod non).
Great when driving quickly: overtaking with 120 km / h. is easy!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Agree with all the negative and positive comments:
GREAT fun for a large family, can fit three bicycles in rear and two people! Sexy, cool appearances, BUT so expensive:
Clutch master cylinder twice, timing belt (£1200 of damage/repairs), dodgy alarm, fuel sender unit -all repairs costing an arm and a leg. Should I switch to a Ford Galaxy?
