I have been on the lookout for a Mk2 1.9CDTi 150ps Zafira but am struggling to find one within my budget. The garage at the end of my road has just got in a 2007 Design with ridiculously low mileage well within my budget, only problem it is a 1.8 petrol.
What are peoples opinion's of this engine, does it have enough torque to pull the Zaf along? I'm selling my ST170 to make way for this as I'm sick of the fuel bills, road noise, rock hard suspension and averaging 25mpg, can I expect any better from this engine?
On the flip side it will only be doing 6-8k miles per year, so even my local Vauxhall dealer said a petrol would be better (not the one selling this car I add, I test drove a CDTi with them), as the DPF would get clogged with such low mileage on the Diesel? Grrr, I don't know what to do?
Anyone got any tips?
