Hello Gents and Gentesses.

Just on the brink of getting this in SE spec. Drove the 1.7CDTI; was quite a lot slower but seemed a little quieter.

Please can I ask two questions as a newbie;

1) Is this generally a good engine? From what I've read its not exactly cutting edge technology but seems relaiable.

2) There is plenty of info online on the 1.7 CDTI engine (Isuzu) but little on the 2.0. Does anyone know who/where it is made.

Any other info appreciated.
