    Sorry Sir but what do you mean by "take it easy for a few minutes before you park"

    Also, coking?

    Thanks.

    I'm not niky, But it means before turning off the engine (after using it on a trip) let it idle for three to five minutes to let the turbo cool down. You can install a turbo timer, which will allow the engine to idle unattended for the specified minutes and it will shut down by itself once done. No more waiting.

    [SIZE=3]3~5 minutes is relatively long. Plus, if you do that after every drive wouldn't that eventually negate the dieselís supposed fuel savings (as against a gasoline engine)? Pity you have to choose between wasting extra fuel and harming the environment needlessly vs caring for your turbo engine. ([/SIZE][SIZE=3]Just wasnít aware of this diesel quirk.)[/SIZE]

    In terms of absolute loudness compared to others... well, that depends... I was comparing it to the same sized engines of other makes... the Santa Fe is a more luxurious vehicle, chances are it has more sound-deadening on the outside.

    Just remember, take it easy while the engine is cold, and then take it easy for a few minutes before you park it. New turbos are not prone to the "coking" of old ones, but it pays to be careful. ;)
    dibale kahit na mas maingay siya ng konti kaysa sa santafe, masaya parin kami hehe

    ITMA, it's not a quirk per se. It's caring for the turbocharger (whether diesel or petrol engine).

    turbo costs around 100-150k for the ordinary ones. I guess VGT would cost a bit more to double of that.

    The way to do this is to slow down when you know you're gonna park. Say, 10mins from your house, don't go beyond 80 (or at least, keep it at 50). You can do this cruising inside the subdivision so you wont need to idle anymore.

    Just goes to show how difficult it is to educate a market.

    We'll at least a veil of exclusivity will clothe the blessed owners of this baby.

    My biggest problem is i don't see myself being "blessed" anytime in the near future. Anyhow, positive thinking...........visualize........arghhh.

    so here's my lowdown on the ford focus 2009 tdci after 3 days of driving it. the car will never disappoint on the open road. torque is readily available and acceleration is instantaneous. i had to restrain myself from pushing the car past the 100km/h mark when i took it to our province in Batangas. So far my top speed in this car is 120km/h. I'll test it true power after passing the 1000km mark on my odometer. Shifted it to manual mode a couple of times only because even in automatic mode, the car continues to deliver. With regards to driving position, it also seats the driver well with a good view of the road. Ride comfort? My passengers were all soundly asleep during the trip to Batangas and would only be roused when I felt like going into F1 mode and whip the car in the open road. The A/C more than adequately cooled the inside of the cabin even on a hot sunny day and music delivery coming from the pre-installed Ford head unit kept me entertained during bumper to bumper traffic listening to Boys Night Out last night. All in all, I'm one very happy owner of the new Ford TDCi. So what if it's a 1million peso sedan. I assure you you'll get your money's worth because it's an urban car with race car under trimmings under neath.
