Octavia TDi Engines
« on: November 01, 2018, 08:53:55 pm »
The daughter is contemplating a Scout TDi. Seems they come in 110kW and 135kW options. Is the difference simply the level of tune, or are they different engines? If different, is one more reliable than the other? Anything to be aware of with these wagons?
TIA.

Diesel particulate filters are a big issue.

The 135kw Scout is effectively a mildly jacked up RS wagon.

Any particular reason she's aiming for a Scout and not an RS?

only are a big issue if you dont keep up regular oil services and never take your car on long trips...

take it for a good roadie every month or two and it wont clog.
