2005 Modus1.5 DCI 86 Oasis % door review

Hi All,
I have been looking for any members review or thier comments regarding a Modus, as above, but cant seem to find anything. My wife seems to have been put of by reading somewhere that the engine have given a number of problems and also they are prone to turbo issues. Does anyone have any info regarding these models, in particular, cars that have done 90,000 miles or indeed does anyone have any experiances of owning one.

Many thanks ALL

I have a 1.5 DCI 86 dynamique S had it for a year, and very happy with it. Good mph 60+ even into 70s if I drive steady. have had no problems, my machanic said at the last service that they are great so long as you keep them serviced as the oil ways will block to the turbo if the oil gets old, much like the Lagunas. I would think that that is true of most engines though. hope this helps.

Re: 2005 Modus1.5 DCI 86 Oasis % door review

I have a Clio of the same vintage with the dCi 80 engine, which I bought new.
The car has done 99,000 miles, virtually trouble-free. The only (very recent) issue I have had is with a pair of faulty keys, which I have now replaced for the horrifying sum of 271.00. These key/immobiliser issues are very common, I believe, as are problems with the airbag and service lamps lighting together on the dashboard.
The engine itself has been completely reliable and continues to deliver around 70 mpg. While it has cost very little to fuel, it has been quite expensive to service, but I don't think I can complain much given the reliability.
I haven't really heard of serious turbo issues with the 1.5. It is a very reliable and proven engine which should give you many years of service.
I have ordered a new Clio, in fact, having been delighted with my existing car. Purchase a dCi Modus with confidence - you should not be disappointed.
