Hi from Holland - 146 1.9 JTD Issues
From a Yorkie in The Netherlands. Joined this site to get some advice as well as share experiences .
I purchased a 2000 146 1.9JTD in March - been in love with it ever since . Metallic blue ( the nice blue ) great spec ,everybody comments on it . It flew through the Dutch version of the MOT , no issues except light bulbs been replaced, Great fuel economy ( my first diesel ,always had petrol)
However I feel that the acceleration is slow ( embrassingly sometimes)and the max speed is 120/130 km/h . I have asked the garage and they say everything is ok with the engine.
I know from this site that this version was not available in the UK and Ireland . But trying to explain this to somebody in Dutch is getting exhausting !
Please can somebody help or advise me to what might me the issue here and how much are we looking at to fix ?
Will post this in the general forum
