Vw 1.6 tdi
« on: December 21, 2016, 08:28:52 PM »
Well folks
Thinking of buying a 13 seat leon with the 1.6 tdi engine
Goes well apart from being ridiculosly high geared

Any opinions or experience of these engines
I had a 1.4 petrol leon from new in 07 5 years trouble free motoring with that so im confident on the rest but have no experience on the 1.6 tdi engine

Well both colly and rob were correct about the 1.6 tdi leon
Within 5000 miles of ownership the egr failed at 44k
Got it blanked and deleted from eco and a good aul remap and proceeded to thrashabout in it for two and a bit years
Great wee car not a rattle in it when i moved it on a few weeks back
Lost 750 euro in valu in two years driving
