The Campaign for Worse Bicycles – Opinion
@mattwragg: I had the 1.6. It sounded ace when flooring it in 3rd to join a motorway - which you had to do as it only had 120bhp I think. Not really enough in the sportwagon. I also had a 1.8, then the JTD. The 1.8 never felt as raw and fun as the 1.6 and the diesel was the biggest car mistake I ever made. I still get shudders when I catch a whiff of diesel at a filling station. Agreed on the suspension issues though - it was like it was made of cheese and considered to be a consumable like, you know, brake pads or fuel. I still miss each and every one of them.
