Question Mk1 or MK3

My 2002 1.9 JTD ELX (DOBSTER) bit the dust last month when I was hit by an Audi, had it from April 2004. It had made it to just shy of 150000 miles and was still driving as good as when I got her. I have replaced her with a 2011 1.6 diesel Doblo which I'm trying to get used to however find it a bit gutless compared to the 1.9 and feel the steering is a bit vague.
Just out of interest how do other people compare the pre 2010 Dobsters to the post 2010 ones

Re: Mk1 or MK3

Try taking the MAF sensor off the car and spraying it with carb cleaner from a distance in the direction the air flows through it. That should liven things up a bit. The 1.6 is available in at least 3 power outputs that I know to. 90, 105 and 120 ish. If its a 90 they ain't very spritely as they are a heavy motor. I agree about the vagueness of the steering, I do find mine not as sharp as the Mk2 I used to have.
