I would like to buy a Peugeot Partner Tepee - is this a reliable engine?

I have a 2001 Vauxhall Astra Estate 1.6i which is about due for a change. I like the look of the Peugeot Partner Tepee and other vehicles which are like vans but have side windows. I need the space to carry a dog and cat and furniture. Is the Peugeot diesel engine reliable and which would you choose from the HDi 75 or HDi 90? Or would you select another make or model entirely?

The HDi is a very reliable and strong engine. We'd suggest the 90bhp version as it has more poke but is nearly just as economical. It's worth looking at the Citroen Berlingo Multispace which is essentially the same vehicle but with a different badge.
