    Well, Those engines in early versions 04-05 have problems with timing chain tensioners. It's pain in the ass to change it as it's located at the back of the engine, so the whole engine have to taken out. Job is simple but the labour will cost a lot. Apart from that sometimes injectors gets faulty due to poor quality diesel but in this country it shouldn't be a problem (unless Tesco's will cock it up again;) ).
