Focus 1.6Tdci 2009 Plate ...any Issues

3 posts in this topic

i am looking at a focus 2009 plate 1.6tdci with 14000 miles on it....i know this has a dpf fitted but it should not be an issue as we will do a 20 mile each way work run....what i dont know is would it have this eolys additive system on it....???i have read about the 1.6 having turbo failure issues with a new engine remedy,was this sorted by this time???other option is the 1.8tdci engine which i know is a solid unit...but so is the cheap tax on the is cheap but does it come with cost risks????any help i thankyou for... :D

It will have the eolys fluid for the dpf, but at 14k miles, and a regular good run, I wouldn't think that would be cause for concern. The engine in question did suffer with spontaneous turbo combustion, but was remedied by 2008, so again, you should be fine.
