    I would never have a tdci or in fact a Ford again.
    Myself and my partner purchased 2 identical cars. Both 2009 1.8 tdci's. Both from Bristol Street Ford.
    Mine had engine problems from the first 6 months. Failed injectors. In and out of the garage over 3 weeks for repairs.
    The following year complete engine failure 3.5 years old - 61,000 miles.
    Required new engine, turbo, electrics and injectors.

    This week my partners also failed. It's been in and out of the garage with issues of juddering. Each time software updates completed. Now needs a new engine 82,000 miles 4.5 years old.

    Absolutely no help or support from Vertue motors or Ford UK
