hi guys, first post here, in fact i registered to ask the following question.
Is the M9R Dci engine ok? i've done the googling and can't really find large forum discussions on it (maybe a good thing then).
I'm talking about the 150bhp version, fitted to a 2010 laguna III coupe.
I've been on the search for a next car for AGES. My budget is £6.5k.
Initially i was looking at bmw 320d coupes, then found out about the whole bmw 2.0 diesel issues with the engine fitted backwards and how the chain falls apart requiring the engine to be taken out..... and a decent 330d is out the budget, plus i don't fancy bmw parts/maintenance prices.
Then i looked at mazda3 2.2d's with 185bhp, only to find they too have some mental issue with the engine pumping
into the pistons.
Then i looked at VAG FSi petrol engines (Golf/Audi A3), and they too have
Every single car i've looked at has some crazy serious engine manufacturer issue......
Now i've finally found a beautiful car on autotrader, which ticks all my boxes, doesn't look awkward, has xenon lights, sports seats, fuel economy and some power (which looks like can be mapped to around 180bhp).
I'm hoping the particular engine doesn't also have some absurd manufacturer issue due to bad design........ can anyone advise please? This is the car i'm looking at
