I am looking at 1 Grand Espace yr 01.
Company owned n mileage at 170K. Test drove today and found the car quite
smooth. Gear changing are smooth. Air-con probably needs service. feel
vibration from the steering even at the speed of 60kmph town driving.
Suspect engine mounting worn out.
The bodyworks still original with no accident.
Interior looks good, cushion well maintain. Need furbish to keep away
from virus....hehe.
Used car dealer asking for RM84K.

Any comments? Hope to hear from all of u soon. Notice this thread has
been quiet for long time.

Best Rgds.

The most important thing to do is get the car inspected by a Renault
mechanic. And I mean a mechanic that has been trained on an Espace, and
has been around Espaces enough to know what to look out for. So, the best
option for this is at Tan Chong (forget Quasar, all the good mechanics
have left and are now with Tan Chong).

Rust is not a problem with this Espace. It's shell is made of composite
materials, so no issue with this cancer. Aircon and transmission needs a
thorough inspection. Otherwise, all should be well.

I still think that Grand Espace is a very nice car. Its one of those
vehicles that still looks good after almost a decade.

Good luck
