2,2 has two main problems:

1) rod bearings – not possible to change the oil each 30 000km(not sure with miles) and necessary to drive carefuly when the oil is cold

2) setting of timing belt – necessary to use special items for blocking of internal moving parts of the engine and for setings of timning

 

My probelm with the head was on used car which had more then 200 000kms (i drove more then 2500kms with dead head gaseket) so for me it wasnt a general problem of 2,2 – problem was thet the repair was done correctly but there was some kind of microhole inside of the head which wasnt possible to see during the first repair so it started to overheat again after 20000kms. i changed the head for another one from laguna with 152000kms and everything is OK.

Turbo – the one which i have is insid for almost 200 000km so it depends again on the situation and on the driver (few minutes of cooling with started engine after the long trip etc.)

  A low mileage 2.2 could be a good bet in a VS then.

for phI models (2002-2005/6) it is a bit better choice than 3,0dci with P9X 701 130kw ISUZU engine in my opinion – now comparing only diesel engines. But in my opinion – there is i think 86kw G9T (2,2dci), 102 (facelift with FAP i think) and 110kw – G9T 702/703 with 110kw is the best choice regarding to their power – i cant imagine how it has t o be difficult to drive that 86kw model :)

 

For phII models the best one is 2,0dci (the best is 127kw) 

 

and now the best choice for me is Laguna Coupe with brand new 3,0dV6 :) i think 175kw – all the tests said that it is better choice than 3,5V6 for LIIIC. 

 

but my new car will be poor czech Octavia Cry (company car)

I decided to repaint my door mouldings today,nice weather and i,ve just fitted new 3.5 V6 badges so i decided to smarten the mouldings up.

They had a few chips on then where people had opened the odd door onto them,they have saved the actual doors but the  mouldings could be better,they are now!!!!

I really took my time and after a few hours in the sun they look great,the affect is satin anyway so a good respray made them look loads better.

I owned a Laguna Coupe with the 3.0dCi engine and it was excellent. 235PS and 450nM torque (more than a Ferrari 360 Modena Laugh). The engine has also proved to be very reliable in the 6 years or so of production so far, unlike the older, Isuzu 3 litre diesels, which have suffered numerous reliability problems.

That's a job I should also do, as mine are chipped.

   So what other cars can we find that new V6 diesel in?  Did the last Espace get it?

I believe that engine is only fitted to the top-spec. Laguna Coupe and Latitude.
