Hey folks, newbie here...
I'm on the brink of buying a used 1.6 petrol style 2007 (57) model. I've heard things about hesitation and wondered which models this affects...from what i can see it's mostly diesel models....or is it a ECU issue that can affect most engine types...

Glad to be a member, look forward to being a part of things!
Danny

Hi, Welcome to the Club!
I'm pretty sure the 1.6 Petrol is pretty worry free ( fingers X'd for your one!!! ),
