    So you will have 162,000 miles approximately........you have nothing to worry about. Keep it serviced with regular oil changes. It doesn't matter whether you have a petrol or diesel either. These are well built cars. (From my personal experience anyway!)

    I had an old Rover 218 TD, I got shot of it at 194,000, was hoping to get over 200,000 on it, but alas the bodywork let it down....
