    Default buying advice 1.9cdti 150 auto

    hi i looking to buy a vectra c on around an 06 plate,i have owned a pre face 2.0t and had no problems,i know there is the common stuff like egr,manifold and the auto box but was that issue solved on a certain year ie water in gearbox and what to look for,i have driven a 58 plate auto 150 and from standstill there is delay from putting your foot down to anything happening but im guessing this is normal,im driving a 54 plate saab 9-3 with the 2.0t engine which is alot better than the old vec and the handleing is great but fancy an auto diesel looking at spending £4500 maybe a tad more for the right car but do i get one with slightly higher millage hoping that any problems would have been sorted cheers guys

    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    Default

    Mine was fairly low milage, but anything 57 or later will already have the revised manifold and swirl linkage. Recently told by a member who knows more about diesels than me (1st one) that the auto's don't suffer as much with egr/dpf probs, as they are usually at the proper revs for speed. I've certainly had no cause to complain.
    I had noticed the lag, think it's largely an autobox thing, but taking the restrictor out of the airbox and a K & N filter helped.
    I found mine runs better on V power or equivalent, but others don't. I don't regret having one, power is good, handling (sri) good, and economy great.

    The af40 box never had the water ingress problem,it was the af33 box in the early auto's.
