Re: Which one? 1.5 or 1.9 ?

My advice is steer well clear of the 1.9dci engine if you can - far too many posts on turbo failure, just do a forum search to see for youself. From what I read the 1.5dci suffer from sticking piston rings and turbo issues too, so is not that much better.

If I had too go down the diesel route then I'd go for neither of those engines and get the 2.0dci engine - much more reliable and chain driven too. But then Im not sure if you can get a Megane with that engine ?

Hope that helps.
