i am confused in this ... is really less use of diesel cars will affect engine life ?
my Ertiga again come in daily use only after 3-4 months. Please provide your experience with Diesel engines.
I guess that is a Fiat diesel engine, i had a Ford Figo used for 3 yrs and sold it at 35000 kms, I used to take it out two months once for a long trip, didn't faced Any problem
And now with my 2013 EcoSport diesel close to 15 or 20 days I don't even start the engine but will take it for a long drive spin 40 days once, again have not faced Any issues.
Current new gen diesels are as good as it's petrol siblings
May be your friend might have used a old gen diesel ambassador
