3 posts in this topic

hi guys, i am just new and already on asking questions...lol...anyway guys n gals what i want to know is should i buy this car,,,i took a 2002 1.8 tdci for a test drive the other day and absolutely loved it, i have never owned a diesel or a ford and didnt know what to expect but i was very impressed...the probem is that when returning to the garage the car lost power and a orange light came on the dash with a kind of coil looking thing in it..(im very technical) the salesman said he would have it repaired and as the car has a two year warranty im not overly concerned, yesterday salesman called and said it is the injectors and the car is away to specialist to have them repaired and i can pick up car on friday...now do i take a car that is already having problems before i get it or should i give this car a miss..or are problems with these cars rare.........or am i too trusting lol , thanks in advance people...

If you like that particular car, I'd take it for a lengthy test drive before committing to it.

Fords generally don't have a lot of engine problems - you'd be hard pushed to find anything more reliable. However, I've heard that the TDCIs do have a few more reliability problems than the TDDI. For what its worth, I've had my TDDI coming up five years and engine-wise it hasn't given me a day's trouble, and its currently got just over 135,000 on the clock.
