Re: To buy or not to buy...Grand Scenic 1.9 DCI

many on the forum will say no to a dci for the reasons you say ( turbo )
all my renaults have been petrol apart from the van but that is a basic 1.9D but is c**p on fuel compared to the gm combo i had
but what have i done picking up a 1.5dci kangoo van ok it was cheap as the head gasket is on its way out and not a problem to fix but for the same reason ( turbo ) i will not be keeping it for long
the only plus side is its half the yearly cost in road tax than my 1.9D kangoo and it should yet to be seen better on fuel (mpg)
