Re: 2.4 jtd advise most wanted
I've got one with 215K miles on it and the engine still seems OK. A lot will depend on how its been used and serviced, but potential problem areas are the turbo - vanes can stick if not given a bit of welly from time to time...and the clutch is an expensive item to replace so check that out.
The engines are heavy so the front suspension gets a bit of a workout, this can lead to the sump getting smacked, so check for damage / cracks....
But they are a great motor if you find a good one!
