    dont do it... 1.9s are slower and generally more noisy than the 2.0... there isnt much difference in insurance between the 1.9 and 2.0 TDI...

    ok well i dont know of any common faults on the 1.9 apart from it being slow and noisy...
    in general look out for specs like 'has it got a DIS? Cruise control? arm rest? auto lights and wipers?' that kind of thing.

    but i would seriously suggest you get a 2.0 TDI... i cannot see why insurance would be a problem as they are like an insurance group 11 or something
