In Topic: Buy A 1.4Tdci??

01 July 2013 - 11:18 AM


Had my 1.4TDci for 4 years now. Had a few issues with it most notably the injector seals. These were replaced under warranty so cost me

I now use the car for Business and regularly carry ladders on a roof rack.


I still return around mid 40`s on MPG with mixed driving this includes central London.



The plus points>

£30 Road Tax

Cheap insurance

Good MPG

Cheap to service at main dealer (Keeps the stamps going) or diy

Small size

great carrying capacity


The negatives.

Tyre prices (16 inch Alloys) (15s are cheaper)

Every screw and bolt is Torx

The engine bay is cramped (the starter motor is a ****** to replace)

No dedicated Haynes Manual


Would i buy another one .... YES!
