    Default 1.9 150 cdti vs 3.0 v6 cdti

    I have a 1.9 150 cdti and a relative of mine is also thinking about buying 1. Recently tho he has come across a 3.0 v6 cdti for a decent price. Wanted to know peoples opinions on the 3.0 compared to 1.9. Pro cons, common faults etc. Thanks in advance

    Default

    1.9 faults - loads , swirl bar , egr valve , boost valve , water pump seizing which breaks the timing belt

    3.0 v6 faults , maybe get suction control valves in high mileage vehicles but that's about it


    Get the v6 much better ( waits for abuse from 1.9
    Owners !!! )

    a remapped 1.9 is a lot more economical and will keep up with the 3.0. my mates a trader he told me to get the 1.9.

    If you are considering the 3.0 V6 CDTI, then purchase a third party warranty (such as the AA repair cover)
    Any repair on this car will cost you muchos monies

    30K miles is rather low
    What year is it?

    Blocked SCV typically affects older models, and not just high mileage; seems to occur at about 4 years / 50K miles
    Injector misfire, although you have to be extremely unlucky to get that
    Failed EGR (unable to clean)

    Then everything else is Vectra based; suspension, steering, electrical, DMF

    I chose the 3.0 V6 CDTI for high mileage reliability, and that it has had, until the end of last year
    Mine is going to last much longer, the next MoT might be the end of it (repair costs higher than residual value)

    What 3 would
    That be ,
    because an egr will cost you about £90

    A new inlet manifold For The swirl bar is about £180 plus 5 hours labour

    Timing belt kit and water pimp
    Is about £150 Parts And 4 hours labour

    So I beg to differ

    my inlet manifold cost £290 including labour vx fitted it and i would still say the 1.9 is better. cheaper to service as well.
