Re: 159, 1.9JTDM or 2.2JTS??
As a 19JTDM driver for just over a year now my car is in for its 18000 first service, The garage have given me a 2.2 as a courtesy car, Which is nice revs a lot but is my opinion not any better apart from pulling away where the diesel can be a little slow. In normal driving the diesel delivers the power where I want it and that’s when I'm overtaking. The diesel has given me no issues over the 18000 miles and just seems to get better, also It revs to almost 5000 rather than the 4000 quoted earlier and unlike most diesels doesn't do a massive lurch as mentioned. If I'm honest yes I’d like the 2.4 or 3.2 but budget doesn't stretch to that, but between the 2.2 and the 1.9JTDM I'll be happy to pick my car back up later today. Incidentally I had a 2.2 for nearly a month whilst I waited for my car to be delivered and when I first got into the diesel it did at first seem comparatively sluggish until I’d done 3 or 4 thousand miles in it when it seemed to get more responsive, I did wonder whether I had just got used to the 1.9, but driving the 2.2 today confirmed my thoughts. The fuel consumption is a little thirsty around the 30 to 31 mark.
