    you have been reading too many horror stories on the 2.0tdi calm yourself down relax and enjoy your motor you will easily put over 250k on that engine with the right servicing

    The 1.9tdi engine is as robust as they come, the 2.0tdi engine is of different design and has some well documented Audi design faults.
    There are many 1.9tdi engines out there with in excess of 150k trouble free miles on the clock.
