In Topic: Help With Engine Choice Please

thanks for the help everyone...i am looking at a 59 plate 1.8tdci focus this weekend.....like everyone says just worried about dpf..we will be doing 60 miles a day so fingerscrossed we will have minimum issues....dont fancy the 1.6 just too many turbo problems around...and not that much difference in mpg..yes i know tax is cheaper....wish me luck...!!!unless anyone thinks its a bad idea..

wow thanks for the replies.....i have to agree i will never buy a french car ever again!!!....i have always bought fords or vauxhall and one bmw and never had any problems apart from normal things........i would still plum for an estate focus if i can find one just need the extra room,i also have a dog which we squeeze in at the moment and with a pram it could be tight for him......looks like the 1.8 diesel maybe the better buy(do you agree)cheaper tax and we also travel to devon a few times ...if i bought a 1.6 petrol how do the figures compare ie mpg and road tax.....................also if i looked at a mondeo which engine types are safest to look at................can i also say what an amazing feedback and replies thankyou.....
