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 Turbo 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 oil changed more often.

Clean oil is happy oil
