I have been running a 2.1 for the past three years with no problems what-so-ever. I have used it for towing the caravan on several Continental tours, and it has been supurb. At 40000 miles I now need to fit a new cambelt. Haynes say that the starter motor needs to come off to get a timing rod into the flywheel, but I'm hoping to manage without doing that. My advice would be to get it.
