I realise this has been asked a million times, and I've made the choice myself in the past, but things have changed since then.
Years ago, diesel was more reliable, more economic and generally better in every aspect except performance and refinement.
Now, with turbos, high pressure systems, dual mass flywheels and DPFs, diesel are different, as are petrols with progression in economy and reliability.
So, the question is, if you were to buy a new car (either brand new or used), what would you go for and why?
Also, for you mechanics out there, reliability wise, do you see more problems with diesel or petrol engined cars?
