Does anybody has the same problem.
I have a 2002 270cdi when i first start up in the ,morning and drive away i get a lot of vibration and noise in the car, is this normal,
It seems to be a bit quieter when warm i have had my car for 4 weeks and still under warranty should i report this?.
Previous to this i had a petrol 320 and it was quiet.
many thanks

My 270cdi makes more noise when cold, especially below zero degrees centigrade, and minor vibration which clears after it warms up, this takes about 10 miles.

I have also quietened motor noise by insulating a few weak spots in the 'firewall'; it only takes a hole the size of a pin to transmit considerable noise.

Having said all that, of course, I cannot tell how much vibration you are experiencing. I would report it as it is under warranty.

thanks for your reply
Another thing to think of is fuel, these engines are quite sensitive to fuel quality.

I find supermarket or unbranded diesel a false economy, it might not be properly winterised, it may not have the proper level of additives to keep the injectors clean and I find the mpg falling from 28 to 26 (miles per imperial gallon) at least.

Try a different brand of diesel and see if your vibration is less.
