i run a 2.4 auto it is very quick off the mark compared to a 1.9td but nothing spectacular after that as the gear ratios seem to be out a bit 70mph is 3,500rpm only ever took mine upto 80mph one real big plus is they are probably the most comfortable auto to drive but a few problems are connections on gearbox corrode making them do all sorts of wierd things and when you change gearbox oil change the filter take the valves out of the valve body and clean them out and then change box again after about 1k miles and it should be trouble free

If the 2.4 is quicker than the 1.9td i would have have thought it was a nice middle ground without the risk of extra mechanical turbo parts?
