Hi, new member and resurrecting this old thread....
I'd love a JTD 2.4 Ti estate but the only one for sale atm (here in Australia) is a 2009 with high mileage at 87,000. I've test driven a 2008 JTD 1.9 estate today (not Ti) which was in very good nick. I did notice the hesitation from rest that I've read about here. Is that an easy fix?
But I have the opportunity to get a 2010 JTS manual sedan 2.2 (not Ti) for a very good price, which is tempting. I really did want an estate and I'm unsure of the 2.2 petrol engine. Going from the comments in this thread, the 2.2 has mixed opinions?
Currently I drive a 2004 147 2.0TS. I love driving this car. I find the 2.0 TS engine is quite fun to drive.....
Is the 159 a heavier car than a 147? Or can I expect similar performance driving the 2.2 in the 159?
