    I think the warrenty of the suspension is only 100K miles so at 100,001 in typical Citoren fashion if would fail and cost a fortune to repair.

    That is of course if the electrics don't die first!

    For deisels right now, I'd stick to:
    Vauxhall 1.2 and 1.9.
    Audi
    Merc
    The one Ford did without Peugeot's help.
    Alfaromeo.
    or FIAT.

    It's a 1242 actually, so it's closer to a 1.25, I think Vauxhall actually call it a 1.3.

    I would if I couldn't afford the 1.9. I'd avoid vauxhalls 1.5, it's a loud clattery lump from suzuki.

    well he has spent the day browsing autotrader and although he isnt a great fan of Ford it looks like its going to be a 2005+ 2.0TDCi 130 LX, looking at £5-7K.

    Thanks for the help chaps, i'm still trying to figure out how he plans on doing a potential 90K a year.

    Oh? Why is that?

    PSA have made some of the best diesel engines put into cars and vans over the years. I would be suprised if they sold Ford a duffer, especially as I have a feeling they sold Ford the HDI engine rebaged...

    Ford mostly use 2 breeds of diesel at the moment, an in house one, and a joint effort with the french.

    And the french one doesn't match the bhp/mpg of the other high pressure injection diesels about.

    There is a Peugeot diesel which uses an additive (refilled at service) which works well.

    What sort of a mileage range is '20-90k' a year?

    Is that like earning 'between £10 and £100000k PA'?
