    Over how many years? In the old days, they would sell about a million cars a year with TU engines.

    I wonder how many have had the thermostat problems. I know I have had it twice.

    2006 they started making this engine type (1.6) and then expanded it to also making a 1.4. 1,280 engines are produced each day, according to the press release.

    They also produce all the MINI blocks, rods and heads too, but those engines are not assembled by PSA.

    I can't imagine they would have sold too many cars with that engine in 2006-2007, compared with their other engine types at the time.

    I'd imagine HDi is still king in European PSA sales.

    Yes, diesels are far more popular than petrol in France, one of PSA's main markets. They are trying to change this with the new generation of small engines that they have designed themselves, offering better economy and lower pollution than the smaller diesels.
