Poster above querying why Renault don't acknowledge the problem with the 1.9... They introduced a 5 year warranty for that reason.

What to do to extend the life of ur turbo ? Regular oil and fuel filter changes, at least every 9k miles with fully synth oil ; let them warm up an cool down properly. Otherwise the expected life of a turbo is 70 to 100k miles, and u can't guarantee how a previous owner treated it ...

DO pay attention to any increased diesel smoke, and DO be aware the engine is well known to runaway following complete turbo failure so be aware!
