Re: New user looking for buying advice
So you're obviously no stranger to DPF's and the carry on that goes with them.
I'm pretty sure the 2.0 DCi does have a timing chain but it's only from what I've read....I've never been under the bonnet of one, so do make sure I'm correct!
The Lag 2 with the 1.9 DCi engine had a service interval of 18k
....many people think this was one of the reasons they suffered
problems and most service the engine a lot more regularly.
Most manufactures are quoting long service intervals these days, personally I wouldn't trust any of that waffle and would much rather have the
changed more often.
