There is some confusion in the article between 2.0 petrol engines and 2.1 turbo diesel engines.

Twice the 2.1 diesel is referenced, when it should say 2.0 petrol.

The first time it says 2.1 diesel atmo is lacklustre. That should be 2.0 petrol, as the diesel atmo was never sold in the Uk.

The other reference is in the buying price guide. It says the cheap cars will be diesel estates...which couldn't be further from the truth, unless they have done inter-galactic mileages and are very tatty.

The least desirable engines are the 2.0, 8v and 16v units, followed by the 8v turbo.
The diesels and V6 are the ones to go for.

A late V6 is a real wafto-matic machine...

Another respected magazine win and a decent appraisal and read, which gets over the main point...Xm are an incredible car for the money (when new and now) and can be looked after on a DIY basis.

On.that note, who are the small, but dedicated band of enthusiasts, mentioned.
We could do with getting them to join the forum to help us out.
