Title: Espace Quadra on e-bay
Post by: renaultsan on February 02, 2015, 06:35:24 pm
This was an absolute steal at the price it went for, wonder if anybody on the forum bought it!
Had I still been living in UK I would most certainly bought it.

I like the 4x4 but not enough to have bought it! I prefer my Vogue 50 range rover :)

Nice car the Vogue Brian but your fuel consumption must be horrible, especially at your prices. We have two Land Rover Discoverys, one still with the 4,0 V8 (thirsty but at our fuel prices here in USA its workable. The second Discovery was a 3.9V8 (10-12mpg) but we imported from England a 300TDI complete with manual box, dumped the V8 and auto box and it now gets 30mpg. Both used for towing at which they excel, but our 1990 2,0 automatic Espace is still more comfortable and economic especially for long distance travel.
By the way, the Espace rolled over 148000 miles today and it still has its original MJ 3 auto box.
Going back to the Espace Quadra, I still want want one and will have to seriously consider it if another turns up on e-bay.

The vogue is the 4.6 petrol. The only one to have in my opinion :)
I have a 20 min commute to work most days & it costs me 25 each week.
I took my box trailer to London, the return trip was around 125.00
I dont think it would be so economical if the engine had not been replaced 35k ago. It does 24mpg with the trailer at 55mph!
I keep saying i'm going to fit lpg, but never got around to it.
