2.0 TDI 170 - Risky for low miles?
Hey folks, so my last post was worrying about buying a Black Edition due to the risk of theft and all that goes with it, however I have come across a few 'cheaper' S Line models which are earlier (06/07) but still have a decent spec.
So just a few questions if you could help...
1) Are they STILL as desirable to thiefs? (170 2.0TDI S line) no Sat nav or Xenons or Rotor wheels though!
2) I do about 1000 miles a month if that, whilst some would say it is silly to consider a diesel for those miles, it's more a case of me trying to find the right car for the price, and sometimes they are diesels, plus they are the only decent bhp car unless I went for the 2.0 TFSI but i'd rather get a little better mpg! (I have owned the MK5 Golf GTI was lovely but not great mpg!)
Is this a problem with the DPF? A lot of short journeys, but I would be willing to take it for a blast now and then if that helps?
3) Are there big problems with the 2.0 TDI 170 engines in the earlier models? I had a Leon FR 170 which was the 2L CR engine (it was a 2009/59 so I am guessing it was common rail) and I never had any DPF issues at all, but isn't the Audi engine in the 56/07 models still PD instead of CR?
Appreciate some of these are idiotic questions but I am just a nervous person who thinks a lot (too much!) :)
