I am looking at a focus estate 1.6 tdci, the car is a one owner co car, has 100k miles and a full service history, the last one being a full service to inc four tires, timing belt, water pump and turbo pipe. The car is a 2007 reg.
What are they like as a city car? Are they reliable? What do I have to look out for ? Going to look at in morning.

ask about the DPF, as sometimes this can be a problem with 1.6 TDCI, as for the estate they are very nice to drive with lots of space..

I don't rush about and I try and keep the revs under 3000 and I try and not go over 75 mph. I found the mpg goes down if I do more than the above. Hope this helps
