[QUOTE=Nowell;5440342]A far better engine it maybe but at the moment it as far more problems with it than the 1.0 the rev hang the clutch judder on some and there is a lot on recall for engine Oil dilution at the moment I know it is a good engine after test drove several of them.[/QUOTE
All engines have problems and the 1.0 litre is no shrinking violet, there have been reports of turbo problems and engines throwing rods. Plus the 1.0 litre has a timing belt and from what I understand is super expensive when it comes to replacement. The oil dilution occurs on all DI engines and these were my i intial fears but it is easily managed with oil changes every 5k which coincidently is what I personally carry out on all my cars. Rev hang, cant say I noticed it and to be honest I thpught it was part of Hondas ecu programming, something to do with gear changes?
