please tell me that the 2.0 Dci 150 is fine....

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 oil into the pistons.

Then i looked at VAG FSi petrol engines (Golf/Audi A3), and they too have Oil consumption issues.
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

thanks

Its fitted in the Trafic The only issue that keeps popping up is mileage, once 100,000 miles, its a timing chain job.
Lots of guys on here have these engines fitted, in their cars... Look for M9R engine

Re: please tell me that the 2.0 Dci 150 is fine....

thanks, ive been googling M9R dci.
I'm also aware there appears to be a FAP and non FAP version...i'm assuming non FAP is better (i just hear bad things about DFP all the time...)
i think i'm going to go check the car out on saturday - how can i tell if its a non 'eco2' non FAP version?
Will the exact engine model number be written anywhere?
any visual cues that would tell me?

Just clocked up 152,000 today. Mine's low mileage. Seen 300K examples. Chain done at 143K.
Regular Servicing 9K Miles rather than recommended.
Yep Fine.

Main Clue 2.0L, earlier Diesels were 1.9L

2010 or younger I think would have a FAP (DPF)

Whether or not this is likely to be an issue depends a lot on what you intend to be doing.
Extremes are loads of long journeys, no issues
Couple of miles a day at most.... issues.

If you have the reg number, any motorfactor should be able to check, dealers certainly can.
