I have had a 1.8 tdci for a year now and it's great, the only thing to watch out for is the egr valve, needs a good clean now and again to keep it running smooth,

I agree with Lee,

My father has had his focus mk2 with the 1.8tdci engine for a couple of years now. Its just short of 70k miles and never missed a beat. His car normally returns 50mpg, and from what he has said its quite alot on long motorway journeys.
The problem with reading on forums about cars is you never hear much good, only the bad bits. Given how many of them are on the roads today, i would say they are quite reliably. I must admit i dont read alot on here about them tbh.
