Thanks for posting the info up , most helpful indeed . I still feel its a flawed system certainly not for everyone . Think it will be a modern high pressure petrol engine for me next time !
You should look at the 140PS 1.4T Meriva, wife gets 45mpg and it can be eco-remapped easily to over 180PS with further improved fuel economy. A very well laid out and competent car, just a pity they don't offer the 140PS in automatic for me, or have a 4x4 option, or a bigger turbo-petrol engine ..
It is also a pity that there is no petrol option for the Antara in the UK, diesel is my second choice and indeed something of a deal breaker, I would have loved the 3.2 V6 auto 4x4 available elsewhere.
