    Default wish i had a petrol this weather

    hate having a diesel in winter, making me think twice next time i get a new car, might get a petrol, heaters take ages to heat up if you drive like me they do anyway (low revs)

    Never noticed that before Chris. Rarely go above 2000 revs even cruising at 75ish on motorway and mine is fine in 5 mins

    Takes a while in this weather for the gauge to register, even with a correctly operating thermostat, but you should have cabin heat within 5 to 10 mins of running.

    Vehicle : Vectra-C

    Agreed, the CDTi does take quite a while, atleast 10 mins in the current weather. My other car, Pug 406 HDi easily warms up in around half that time.

    Yep, the 1.9cdti is about the slowest car to warm up I've ever owned. Easily 10 minutes and in this cold weather it often never gets to normal running temperature (85-ish?) at all and drops as soon as you slow down a bit.

    Never mind though, as Mick says just put the seats on full and it's not too bad

    I was starting to wonder if the heaters in my 2.2dti were broken! they take about 20mins to warm up and even then its not what you would call hot air that comes out!

    It will get warmer faster if you turn the heater to cold but can you live with that?

    My diesel is warm in the car after a few miles like 3-4 after 7 the car temp gauge is just starting to move off the bottom, id rather be warm than the engine.
