    Lightbulb Turbo Whistle!?

    Hi! Anyone know if it is true that the 1.9CDTI 150bhp turbo naturally has a slight whistle? A Vauxhall dealer has informed me that this turbo whistle that I have, is actually a characteristic and I just want reassurance???

    I'm hoping that the info I was given is true and that it is a characteristic? There is certainly no leaks or loss of performance and the car has only just clocked 24k. Just worried as I only have about 4 or 5 months warranty and just hoping that i'm not being fobbed off until warranty expires... if you all know what I mean!?!

    Used to have a Vectra 2.2DTi and yes it had an annoying whistle kept thinking something wasn't shut properly.
    Kind Regards,
