Love the noise but if it's a modern Diesel it'll be wracked with reliability issues. My last 4 vehicles have been diesels. First 1 was a wee common rail TDCi, not to bad. 2nd was a CDTi Vauxhall (Fiat JTD clone), plagued with EGR issues, finally got shot of it when the gearbox started to fail (car was 2 years old) 3rd was on old school Nissan Terrano TDi, it just ran and ran, if somewhat slowly and noisily but I couldn't break it. Current one is a Honda CRV iCTDI that has a battery drain from the crazy multiplex wiring system, if I leave it for more than 2 days the battery is dead. Only the diesels do this apparently. Dealer solution? New battery. (2nd in 2 years), clueless.

All the wife's petrol cars just run with no issues. Seems we have perfected the petrol engine and old diesels but trying to get them to emulate something their not (i.e. a petrol) has put diesel reliability back 40 years.

So unless it's an old smoker, I aint touching one.
