I read up on the engines on here and elsewhere and wouldn't have touched the 1.9/2.2 DCi models at all. The 3.0 isn't without it's problems but appears to be sourced somehow from Isuzu(/Nissan?) and appears to be a better option all 'round anyway as the fuel economy isn't massively worse than the 2.2 but with much more grunting power. If we get around 35mpg from it on a motorway then it'll be on a par with our existing 1.8 petrol-engined getaround. Obviously we've taken a risk though in buying this 'long-distance' and I am a tad worried about anything we should have asked or should look at when it gets here.

Link to actual car we've purchased:
