Bought my 156 2.4JTD about 2 months ago. I love it its by far my favourite car I've ever owned already!
I bought it from a used car place, and it showed 107k on the clock with no S/H.
Today whilst fixing a bodge from a warranty trip to the (useless) dealer I bought it from I spied a small yellow sticker which was a service sticker from 2005, showing a mileage of 125k!!! So logically taking it forward it looks as if the car has done anything from 160-190k
I was absolutely gutted. and
I hadnt heard of clocking for a while and the thought hadnt even crossed my mind!
So now i'm in a quandry, and looking for advice:
a) how long do 2.4JTD engines last? (It does look as if its been cared for)
b) should I pay more attention to the sound and appearance of the engine than the miles?
The car is almost immaculate inside and out (everyone comments how good it looks for a 100k car! if only they (and I) really knew...) and the engine sounds really good. I have somewhat fallen for the car, and I am hopping mad that this has happened (we checked it so thoroughly!) Advice please!!!!!
