Diesel injector problems

I've had diesel injector problems with my 2004 Mondeo TDCI 130 and hope never to again. Are there any makes/models, 3-5 year old, on the used market that do not suffer from injector problems that I should consider next?

VAG has just had to replace the piezoelectric injectors on a lot of its 2.0 diesels. But that does not mean the rest of the cars will be okay. Generally the PSA 2.0 TDCI/HDI 16v seems to have been the most reliable.

Very good to drive. Comfortable on long distances. Well built interior. Good value as a used buy. TDCi diesels offer great economy. Huge estate versions ideal for load lugging.
