    How about a nice Ford Escort 1.8 turbo diesel Taurus. I hear they're really good

      I have an early C, I like it. Will most likely be getting another one day probably a late C and put a LET in it.

      I like how cheap they are, and personally I wouldn't buy a D as the roof sits too low and being tall I don't have much visibility

          Taurus, the new merivas have 1.4, 1.4 turbo and a 1.6 turbo in the petrol range.

          when I next buy a car, it'll be much better because I won't be in a rush because the other car died. So I will be looking and choosing wisely. A turbo'd 1.8 Sri C is something I'd like, or the D Sri. I have looked at a fiesta or polo, but neither really appeal to me.

              Ta! The information I'd got was that they did 3 1.4 engines, 100ps, 120ps & 140ps - all listed as 1.4.

              Edit - just checked on the Vauxhall website - apparently all three engines are 1.4 - no 1.6 listed. They do the two diesels but for the kind of mileage I do petrol makes more sense.

              I might do some digging around and see if the 140 turbo is showing any issues. I have a mate who works for Vauxhall, I'll ask him this evening.

                            Yes, that's what he reckons, they don't seem to get too many issues with them.

                            Well hopefully the Vectra will soldier on and I can keep it going as long as possible, but when it needs much spending on it I'll change.
