went at 70K on the nail with a full service history and 9K intervals. If you have a manual gearbox and know how to spot the signs, it's possible to stall the engine before any serious damage is done. If you have an auto box, or don't do the right thing, you'll write off the engine.
The 2.2dCi is a safer bet. Not completely problem-free, but nowhere near as notorious for fatal
flaws as the 1.9dCi. If your budget will stretch to a late 2005 model, then the 2.0dCi is supposed to be a much better engine than either of its predecessors. It's also chain driven, so you don't have to budget for a new timing belt at 72K or 5 years.
