    Default Getting Rid

    After a turbulent 5 months with my 1.9 CDTi vec hearse, I have decided to bin it. I just shelled out over £1500 on it in the last few weeks on servicing, repairs etc and the fricking thing still isn't running as it should and makes all sorts of weird and wonderful noises. Frankly, although when it is running well its lovely, I am sick to death with it.

    No more oil burners for me - back to petrol.

    Off to look at a 1.8VVTi hearse this avo. This time with low mileage and still in VX warranty. Fingers crossed......

    Thanks Ed. I think I have been patient enough with this one but it really has dented my wallet. Having looked at all the feedback and tales of woe on the site relating to the 1.9 CDTi, I have come to the conclusion that if you are fortunate enough to get a good one, then they are brilliant.

    Trouble is, that seems to be the exception rather than the rule....

    I dare say that I am going to lose out a bit on low down grunt and economy by going back to petrol, but tbh, if it means I get reliability then its a no-brainer. I love the car. Just hate the bills.

    Lets see what happens....
