Hi, I'm wondering about the 2013 Ford Focus diesel 1.6 TDCi. How reliable are they? I never had a diesel before and would prefer petrol but none available to me at the moment.

Yes, they're pretty good. We've heard no major reports of serious issues with the current-shape Focus and that 1.6 diesel is long-lived and has seen service in various Volvos, MINIs, Citroens and Peugeots. Just make sure that it gets a regular oil change and that you use a high-grade synthetic oil.
