No, it isn't bad. It is the last type before the E-tec came along.
I made the same mistake. On the phone I was told it was an E-tec, but in real it was a new 250 DI (Direct Injection). The same as on your picture. Got it at a bargin, so I was happy in the end. It runs very nice, low consumption, good sound, good acceleration, etc.

Congratulations with your purchase.
