my response above should have been tailored to your comment. sorry.
if you know how to buy 2nd hand, and how to drive in order to give the dmf an easy life, you wont experience a dmf issue. they last a long time so unlikely to give you an issue over 12months if there wasnt an issue with it in the first place. same with fuel pumps, dont abuse your car with red diesel, cooking oil and supermarket fuel. if you still to a quality fuel you shouldnt have an issue with this at all. on a 2k car you are unlikely to even have a DPF as they were introduced on later cars which still cost upwards of 5k ish. basically get a well looked after VAG 1.9 tdi. job done.
Fair enough, each to their own. What 2 grand motor do you have in mind?
under warranty surely?
