Question Re: Megane DCi or DTi or avoid?

Thanks the two I'm looking at have full service history but its closer to the Renault recommended dates. DCi has history at 20K,31K,35K,48K and 57K. The DTi was a police office car and so was maintained by the police.

What about the Turbo 's though I test drove a car with 74K on it the other day and it was clear the turbo was not working and ?I have noticed one with 80K for sale statiing a new turbo . Surely the turbo 's last longer than this?

Hence I'm keen to know a replacement cost, to work out whether buying a Diesel will save me money or not in the long term.

Thanks, Matthew
