Just had to pay out for a new engine as my Astra 1.4T petrol engine 2016 with only 27k miles as suffered from a damage piston.

Just discovered that Vauxhall fitted a reconditioned engine at a cost of £4,500 when I was told it was a new engine.

Has anyone had a similar experience?

Small capacity engines being stretched to their engineering limits due to emissions targets.
What’s not to like ?
Less weight , fewer cylinders , high pressure clever fuel injection , less emissions , more power.
What’s not to like is the reliability issues that crop up from this less tolerant engineering.
