    Have a Peugeot partner hdi. But it is the 800kg payload one, which is much better to have.

    Peugeot partner. My mate john the mechanic reckons if you change the oil every year on these they are one of the best diesel engines out there

    I have a Peugeot partner 1.6 hdi for sale! It's absolutely mint
    Owned by Cheshire breakdown and recovery maintaining all the police cars
    Yes the hdi is reliable but can suffer massive turbo failure
    Service them every 5000 not the recommended 10,000 and you'll have no issues

    Oil needs changing every 5000 and sump dropping to clean the carbon it's this that causes the turbo failure

    Be fine then
    Just make sure when serviced the injector bolts are tight it's 5 min job and stops carbon build
