I had to think long and hard about what we were going to use this car for. She had a Picanto but 2 weeks ago someone T boned her forcing us to look for a replacement. We don't want a massive motor as I've got the truck but something that I would be more comfortable in for longer journeys so I can put the old girl in to semi-retirement.
I did do some searching last night and this smoking/oil vapor out of the oil filler seems a bit more common on VW engined cars.
