I own a Grand Space 2.2 diesel 2001. Superb car and very reliable. Apart from normal servicing never had any problems with it. Great mileage per gallon and a joy to drive. On holidays I pull a 5 berth caravan without any effort.
Will buy another at any time.

I own a Renault Grand Espace on a W reg and am having problems with the dash going daft. I was led to believe that it was a heater sensor on the PCB board on the instrument panel, but I have replaced the instrument panel and still have the same problem, so beware spending money after false claims. It is probably worth having a diagnostics check done which is my next layout. Will report any new information.

Dash board problems,.. Try one of the specialised Renault Breaker yards, they supply these quite cheap, and with a 90 day Warranty.

I own a 5 year old Espace. Already replaced the turbo and cat at a very big cost. A few other minor repairs.
Now the big end bearing has gone, and it's needing a new engine. Renault dealership said most probable cause would be when it was built. Told to call Renault customer services. What an insult; offered £600 towards cost of either any car or the £5500 repair bill.
Wouldn't touch Renault with a barge pole. Even the dealership agree with us, what does that say?

I have owned my Renault Espace 2.0T 2003 model for the last 2 years, and was bought with 50k on the clock. I don't seem to have had any problems at all with the vehicle, and use both RENAULT main dealer and local garage servicing.
I do find though that I am getting heavy front tyre wear, but you can pick up re-enforced front tyres for around £70. I love this car and would buy a new one any day, I'm even thinking of getting it converted to LPG in the New Year.
