    Depends on the use but with technological advances in overall engineering as Niky out it, the reliability of a small turbo engine today is much better and will be good for the lifespan of most regular car users. Mas masakit lang sa bulsa pag nasira versus a big old school n/a.

    That's why I love the LC80. Big reliable old engine plus a turbo. Not as fast as a CRDi but dang torquey and reliable.

    Non turbo I like big displacement because of the linear power delivery. Less maintenance. Less worries. But it still depends upon the whole package of the car. Case in point: Fiesta Ecoboost.

    Just an observtion on the matter of choosing between turbo or non-turbo.

    With gasoline engines there is still "that" choice (turbo, non-turbo) but with modern diesels be it large or small displacement a great majority are de facto turbo intercooled with a form of direct-injection.

    I guess what I'm driving at (pardon the pun) with diesels there is a clear cut advantage with turbos but on gasoline engines as with what Niky notes real world results are mixed.

    Having owned turbocharged and V6 cars in the past...... I'll go for a V6.

    I'm very happy with my 9-year old 3.3L V6 Sonata. I'd replace it with another V6 Sonata. But, Hyundai decided to go with a 4-cylinder turbo. So, no new Sonata for me.

    For me po,

    kung pure stop-and-go-traffic,

    non-turbo, (gasoline)

    kung highway driving/long distance travel,

    turbo, high displacement engine

    Daily driven... Non turbo.

    One less thing to worry about in the long run.

    How bout sa diesel engine ano ba mas fuel efficient. Turbo (crosswind) or non - turbo (adventure) same condition.

    The Crosswind is more efficient than the Adventure, but AFAIK that has to do with the direct injection fuel system and not the miniscule turbo which was supposed to improve emissions and make it Euro 2 compliant.

    The weak spot for a turbocharged engine will either be the impeller or the joint where the turbo housing is connected to the engine block.

    Even if technology has progressed, I'm still leery of those weak spots in a turbocharged engine, especially as the car gets older.
