    Default 2.2 DTi SRi Auto

    Been looking at this 2.2 DTi SRi Auto. I don't have a clue about diesels but are they reliable? And i'm guessing the fuel consumption will be much less than my 2.2 petrol and easier on my pocket!!

    Anyone offer any advice?

    EDIT: I know there isnt any info on the car, and im going to take a look at it tomorrow.

    Had a read through that and the ones with problems all seem to be pre-2004.

    I've been considering a diesel for a while now......

    It does seem a little expensive, the 2.2 dti is ok, the 1.9cdti can be a real dog if you get a bad one. The 2.2's suffer from turbo pipes splitting and fuel leak off pipes. I would get a 2.2dti over a 1.9cdti because imo its a more reliable engine. They are also very close on economy but the 1.9 is quicker.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    What sort of things should i look out for if i take a look/test drive the car?

    I've also seen another car of the same spec/age/price and it has just over 50k on the clock

    the 2.2's will do 50+ too. But its an auto so will be less. Also the 2.2 does not suffer the same level of turbo lag that the 1.9's do. With you looking at an auto it would be better imo.

    I looked at a 2.2dti siggy but fell in love with the 3.0V6. It was a perfectly acceptable engine in the sri.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Recently i've began to notice how hard the 2.2 direct is on fuel and money. I've never checked the MPG on it but i know it's not much. 4 hours of deliveries last night and it drank just under half a tank - that's £30!!!!

    What are you talking about??

    Tam, I had a look on autotrader, don't know where you are but found this:

    Maybe the price isn't so bad?

    My 2.2 Direct was the same price as the DTi when i bought it - 54 plate with 20,100 on the clock.

    This DTi is slightly older and i don't know the mileage.

    Edit: Big Sig, i seen that as well. Looks tidy. The one i'm looking at is very similar to that, although there's no pics.

    Have you thought of a Signum? They are cheaper and higher spec'd. maybe a 2.2dti design?

    Or do you need 5 full seats?

    just found this:
    http://search.autotrader.co.uk/es-uk...=&max_mileage=

    Its got leather, and nasty rear lights!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
