I own one of the cars in question here in the usa
I feel it is a real highway cruiser, maintinence is moderate, starter $450 usd, glow plugs $15 ea,
x 6, prepump $197,. that is what I have replaced so far as a matter of preventive maintinence. Performance to me is sneaky, sluggish take off if tranny is in regular mode then it picks up, if tranny is in sport mode it takes off, but it uses more desiel in sports mode. My wife love it for it is a simple car low maintinence, in my opinion.
I use it as my long didtance driver....
It gets a good thumbs up from me......

Does anyone have any experience with the 525 TDS - turbo-diesel intercooled model? I'd like to know what the performance and maintenance for these cars is like.
