I would say that they are a bit louder than the petrol but not a huge amount, we had a tdci before our current one and that sounded like a petrol with the big ends and cam going lol, the new ones are very good, when we picked ours up new I thought they had not put tdci in it because it was so quite, it did get a bit louder after 2000 miles though. Don't get me wrong I think that the Ecoboost engines are the future, small engine turbo ect good performance from a very small engine, not sure how they will last maybe compared to a larger engine but time will tell.

No I would not like a Ecoboost, have driven one but not for me, I don't really do enough miles to warrant a tdci but I would not have any thing else, I do about 12k a year but have found the fuel economy on the tdci very good.

Our car is two years old and a 1.5 litre, after reading up on the engines I found you get just a bit better mpg with the 1.6 litre and a bit more power, think ours is 75 ps and the 1.6 95 ps.

Just don't like it, to me they just did half the car and forgot the rest, found out the colour is metallic so am going to get a new Zetec Econetic with the 1.6 95 ps tdci engine (mine is 1.5) and a good few extra`s, not ideal but it will do, just had ours serviced and they loaned me a 1.25 Zetec, cost me £15 in petrol for the trip home and back, and on the way back to pick ours up the warning sounded for low fuel and the orange light came on, the display on the car said it was doing 38 miles to the gallon, on our car (71.6) did not even see the fuel gauge move and with the petrol one thought I was going to have to get out and push it up the hills lol.

To me it just looks like a unfinished car, if it was all round no problem but I know they cant do that because of law to do with seeing out of it but then again what about when you are reversing, I think privacy glass should be a option not you are forced to have it, may be its my age or some thing but if I could only get a Ford with privacy glass I would not buy a Ford.
