just personal choice
dont like the way they drive , most are no revs and no power
economical , well yes , till you factor in perhaps a turbo re-build , some engine management random fault , a set of injectors, pumps etc
the £1800 bill from that lot will wipe out any fuel savings quite quickly
i agree not all diesels are like this ,my mates got a big old 2.5 l merc thats
got about 500,000 miles on it still going strong apart for a few consumables , he had a 504 pug with similar miles before the rust got it
@ reuben , buy it , prove me wrong
dont pay more than 600 tho
I have a 1.8 Diesel Passat and, to be fair, that pulls like anything. Revs nice and low on the motorway so never feels stressed. Top car
(agree with mikee on complications with servicing turbo though)
On the money, Mikee!
Twelve red ones and it's mine!
New clutch and DMF last year, sus bushes the year before, pulls like a train, unmarked leather and icy climate control!
and 3/4 tank of fuel!
