OK - cambelts on the 147 JTDm should be done at about 60k, water pump needs done then too. servicing from an indie costs me probably on average about £250... Mpg - depends how I drive it, I've had 47 mpg average out of a tank but that was me being careful to see what I could get - driving more normally I get about 41 and if I'm being a bit heavy footed the worst I have had was 36 mpg. Tax for mine is £150 per year. Very strong engine the JTDm, I agree that turbo lag is a tad annoying, but the torque is excellent and I don't find I have to change gear straight after I get the boost - there is plenty of range in the gears! Ive had it 2 years and i won't be parting with mine soon! I would also say that if it has been well looked after, 70k is not worryingly high millage for a JTDm
