Re: Central locking problem, possibilities?

My opinion would be to steer clear of the 1.9dci engine. Far to many horror stories of turbo 's blowing and engines running on their own oil due to this !

If you can stretch to it, get a newer model with the 2.0dci engine in it. This engine is much much more reliable, plus is chain driven, so no cambelt changes every 5 years or 72k miles.
