Hello Guys,
So I bought a Captiva 2.2 turbo diesel 4wd 184hp. This is my first diesel car. I know my question will sound noob but I would like to ask you that what is the ideal RPM to drive? At what RPM should I shift up? I usually stay between 1500 and 2000. At cold engine I usually don't go above 2000 but at hot engine I shift up at 2500 and drive the car in the city in 3rd or 4th gear. Close to 2000 the engins starts to get louder. Under 1300 rpm the power lacks.
Thx in advance.

I'd say you're driving it about right, it's already developing around 250 lb/ft of torque at 1500rpm and torque maxes out at 295 lb/ft around 2000 rpm.
