Turbo failure is definately what puts me off ever owning a dCi.

Renault aren't alone in having reliability issues with their common rail engines though,it's still reasonably new technology and many manufactures are letting their customers do the development work on the systems for them.

Things are improving though.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
