My Audi 200 had exactly that system. It also had fans to cool the injectors after shutdown. That didn't stop me from running it for a minute, either.

VW doesn't exactly encourage people to maintain their own cars. Whenever there is a choice between a standard fastener or a uncommon one, they go for the uncommon. When you open the hood all you see is a gigantic plastic cover. You have to remove a splash guard just to change the (of course "special") oil. More trouble than they are worth in my humble opinion.

Well, I always maintained my cars, and VW is very easy to maintain.
Long story short, they did not bankrupt like some companies, and I think there is a reason for that.
When it comes to "special" oil, it is not special, it is just thicker (generally better) then what you have to use in Stratus for example (which is not some reference).
Splash guard is very useful, not because it prevents water, but small rocks damaging wiring, hoses etc.
Standard or uncommon fastener. Well considering that almost all innovation in auto technology comes from Europe, I would say they are doing something right.

They want to sell you another car so for them, they've designed it perfectly wink

There are many things that can wear a turbo excessively, I suspect most of the wear took place due to the driver not being gentle on it on the warm up phase and being on the wrong service plan for it's use.

Longlife servicing is for gentle, low load, long distance driving according to the VW website, if you use the car for spirited driving, short journeys or towing then fixed interval servicing is the plan you should be on.

This of course is not explained by the cretin salesman who just wants his commission.

We will see how that will go now when they departed with Mazda!



I hate to point out that it was Mazda getting input and borrowing platforms from Ford not the other way round really.

Mazda are minority player in the UK.

New 6 looks nice enough but not cheap for what it is.

The fact is many high mileage drivers that use a car for work have moved over to Ford products and strangely Skodas which seem to suffer from less issues than VW despite sharing platforms, perhaps the difference is the fact they tend to get new tech a year or so later than VW.

There is no excuse for 2.0tdi sumps cracking in normal use or under engineered oil pumps in this day and age.

And i ran a garage back in the early 90's and we did very well out of "bulletproof" VWs thank you very much.

I haven't even mentioned suspension bushes on Passats and Golfs yet.

2.0tdi PD is one of the worst engines that have been produced by VW. Why they produced 2.0tdi PD I have no idea, when 1.9tdi PD proved to have been able to deliver outstanding power even with 8V head.
As far as 90's. we drove VW diesels during Bosnian war bcs they could run on oil that cools electrical stations. Opel and Ford not only that they could not run on the oil, but bcs of the rusting, we were scared to take them off the road, which we usually had to.
So please, Ford made huge leap forward in recent years, but 90's?

Mazda got the tribute and the truck from ford. That was it. The fusion was a Mazda6 when ford got it. Mazda engineered Ford's 4-cyl duratec lineup. You are quite wrong about Mazda/ford relationship. WHEN they were working together, Ford provided the money and facilities and Mazda provided the engineering.

Nope. Ford's CD3 platform is based on Mazda's G series. That is a Mazda designed chassis that is used in several Ford vehicles. I believe the CX-7 also has its own Mazda chassis along with the Miata.

Not that it matters because Mazda doesn't use Ford for any current chassis other than possibly the Mazda5 and the CX-9, but both of those could be made by Mazda in next model year.

And the 4 cylinder duratecs since 2003 have been Mazda engineered/designed MZR engines, not Ford, yamaha or whoever: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda_MZR_engine

Zetec engine was developt by Yamaha in the 90s. Both mk1 and mk2 Euro Focus have Ford chassis c170 i c1. I'm not familiar with NA models so there might be difference though.

that is why we are talking duratec, not zetec.
