    The 1.6 hdi engine gets a lot of flack and is known to be a very dirty engine
    They can suffer turbo failure but it's down to poor maintenance
    Service regular and these engines will run for ever

    I've got a 1.6 new shape Dispatch with 73k on it. I'm going for the bigger engine next time I get one.
