1.9 16v or 2.4 10v, which is better?
Hi all, I currently have a 2004 156 1.9 jtd m-jet, I'm thinking about buying a 2.4 pre facelift jtd and was just wondering if anyone had any advice, thoughts, preferences etc as to what to expect.
I've looked at the specs, performance, mpg, bhp etc and they look very similar but as I have never owned or driven a 2.4, just wondering what they were like comparison wise.
my saab 2.2 diesel shows very similar specs to my 1.9 alfa but to drive they are nothing like, going from the alfa to the saab is like going from a Ferrari to a tractor in terms of noise and performance, only I think the saab is worse on diesel than your average tractor.
can I expect much the same from the 2.4 jtd or are they quite good?
Any advice or personal experience / opinions is greatly appreciated.
also anything to look out for on a 2.4 potential major problem wise.
my 1.9 engine has done a quarter of a million miles and taken me all over the country without missing a beat, can I expect the same reliability?
