    Default Questions on C5 2.0 Hdi and 2.2 Hdi

    Hi all,
    I have a few more questions on the C5 series 2 (2006-2008) model diesels.
    Firstly, which of the diesel engines would be the preferred one when taking into account longevity and cost/ease of maintenance. The 2.0 hdi (100kw) or the 2.2 hdi (120kw)?

    Also, when was the 6speed AW box introduced? I see models for sale in the 2006 and 2007 years, some stating they have the 6 speed and others the 4 speed. Its very confusing. Was there a definate changeover date, and therefore the specs given in carsales just not accurate, or were they supplying both at the same time in various models?

    Thanks for any info on this

    Is the 2.0 the old version of the 110kw 2.0 in the Grand Picasso? If so, I'm a fan.

    We love our 2.2ís. Only problem in 200k km in the older model has been the air doser. Great for hauling portable bedrooms/aka Aívans etc.

    What are the issues with the 2.2? I know it has a twin turbo which increases complexity but other than that what could be issues?
    So the 4 speed autos in the series 2 cars are not the AL4 but 4hp20. Whats the difference?
    Also, what are peoples experiences with the dpf's on the pre-2008 models, both 2.2 and 2.0? I'm interested in a vehicle with around 200k.
    Thanks

    No power wise they are fine and all in all ok but the water heat exchanger is a particular weak point and the bi turbos can be expensive both problems write the cars off from an economic point of view mind you this is from a mechanics point of view and I tend to see all the dramas.
    What money are you looking at spending

    Money, around 5k to 9k. The money is not so much the issue. I do prefer the pre 08 series 2 models so its not that I am after the newest I can get. I am looking at 06-07. Preferrably a low km one but more importantly one that has been looked after and serviced properly. My current Peugeot 406 hdi has 400k on the clock and still runs very well, with no oil usage at all, and no smoke blowing. The previous owner looked after it, that was clear when I bought it with 300k, and I took the chance, which has paid off.
