Somebody's a bit bitter! But to be honest, anybody who thinks the 2.2 dCi is the most unreliable engine in the known universe hasn't owned a 1.9 dCi! At least they don't eat turbos every 80k or so... A cracked inlet manifold is relatively easy to deal with by comparison.You are better off with G8T in terms of reliability. 2.2DCI is probably the worst engine renault has ever produced. Older 2.2 dti on the other hand has very good reliability and price. MR espace is the one to talk to. He is the best regarding this subject.
