Diesels last longer, are cheaper to run, have heaps of low-down torque, and don't rely on electricity - hence they won't conk out in heavy rain or after going through a big puddle like alot of petrol cars do. A diesel is summat you can put trust in.

i think they sound pants but i went out in a top of the range Golf TD an the power from that was shocking! i was so suprised, very good performance for a diesel, i'd have one considering the amount of miles you get for a full tank laugh

HI

used to hate diesels until i got my 106.

yeah its not fast but i cant object to 200 miles to 10 of fuel, nor can i object to putting 44K on a car in two years and suffering no major mechanical failures, or to the 127,500 miles its now covered on a 95 N plate. Oh, and the engine is running that clean that the Emissions Machine at the MOT station had to ask if the exhaust probe had fallen out! <img border="0" alt="[laff my ass off]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions042.gif" />

It truly is a car you can put trust in. It starts, stops and does all you need a car to.

As for fun, the comedy bodyroll is something to behold laugh

Phil

The VW golf Turbo diesel is pretty much top of the league IMO, only one that could possibly better it is the pug engine.

The majority of VW petrol engines are severely under powered, but the Turbo Diesel engine is pretty much the best available, think they use the same/similar engine in the sporty Skodas now-a-days.

Got a Mondeo TD as my runabout - 45-50 mpg round town and very reliable. Only drawback is its slow (even though I have wound the boost out a little wink ) and a bit noisy on tickover.

Went to rockingham over the weekend and back on a smidge over 20 of fuel - how many petrol cars would do that?

As mentioned above, the even newer TDs are quick too, especially the VW's smile I had one of the new 3.0 V6 TD Vectras last week - 180bhp, 0-60 in 8.3 and a top speed of 140mph (which it was rude no to test wink )

Bit "chuggy" at tickover, but open the trottle, and it made a nice V6 roar, and had one of the biggest turbos Ive seen on a diesel road car!!!!
