    Wouldnt buy high miles but I have owned high milers, my last car was 157k when I got rid of it, but I had owned it from 76K so knew its history.

    No problems but you might need to spend money on tired suspension or something is what i think. Does't always mean they are cheap in the end

    in the 1.8 petrols the gearboxs tend to go around 160000 miles which in most cases costs more than the car plus other wear and tear parts keep costing money every month
