Yes I can have for £5250 what about timing chain etcHonest John (they're normally right) has a statement about Kia dealers routinely remapping the 1.6 and 2.0 CRDi engines to extend the turbo's life :
3-8-2013: Seems that Kia dealers are routinely remapping the turbos on 1.6 and 2.0 CRDI engines to prevent overboost and extend the life of the turbos. This results in much less torque in the 1,800-2,000 rev range and considerably reduced performance.
Apart from that they say :
All of the diesels are sprightly in the lower gears which means they're good for driving around town, but they quickly run out of puff. As a result you have to push the Cee'd SW rather hard to get up to speed on the motorway and even the most powerful versions of the 1.6 becomes quite vocal above 3500rpm.
Make of that what you will. The review was written in 2012, before the remapping statement.
BTW the car you linked is £5499, not £5250
