Diesel....enough km/year to justify?
I'm new here. Driving in my 15 years old 156 2.0 TS, which in the not so far future will be replaced with a newer but used model. But I am confused of what to buy. Im in love with the 159, but havent heard much good of the 1,9 and 2,2 jts models. The 1,75 is above my budget (they are pretty expensive here in Denmark).
So, the to models Im looking at is 1,9 jtd and 2,0 jtdm (I love the torque). Im driving 10 km each way to work every day, but do longer trips once or twice a week. In a year, I am driving about 16.000 km. My question is; will the relatively short daily driving distance cause me too much troubles (EGR-vent, others?). I am getting different informations from different people, but I need some facts and user experiences. Does many short distances harm the motor, or will my longer trips (100-300 km) "refresh" the motor?
Thanks in advance,
