Bailee341's review of Vauxhall Combo 1.3 CDTi

“Great little runner Combo 1.3cdti 2009”

Written on: 26/09/2019 by Bailee341 (1 review written)

I bought my 2009 ex-BT van with 110,000 miles on it. The turbo actuator wastegate valve was stuck which is a common problem. Easy fix which took ten minutes with ramps, WD40, and a long screwdriver.
It goes like a little dream. very comfortable (I'm 5`9") and economical. I drive approx 160 miles a day to and from work with a heavy load in it and it`s now just coming up to 140,000 miles and still runs like a watch.
If you can do basic maintenance and change your oil and filters etc every 6000 miles it will last a long time and it is much more responsive than the old 1.7 diesel Isuzu (I had one). Timing chains will break if you run them low on oil or neglect and abuse the engine.
It looks like some reviewers on here have either neglected their vehicle or just found one that was thrashed to within an inch of its life (usually ex-PO). It`s quite true that a lot of people only find out where the bonnet catch is after they break down.
Even though the engine is an Italian Multijet, it does not mean that it is rubbish. These are great little engines.
