I sold my 147 JTD Lusso with 155000 miles in Dec 2011, and it was still in first class condition on it's original clutch as well - and original front brake discs! That 147 never used any oil between services and I took it on lots of European driving holidays, the 156 sportwagon replacement that I swapped her for is just as good, although because it has the 16valve mjet engine and the 6 speed gearbox, it is more economical on diesel! My 156 has just turned over 100000. Last summer we drove over to Naples, and it behaved perfectly and didn't use a drop of engine oil either - that did surprise me as we drove back via the Timmelsjoch pass from Italy into Austria, and it did us proud!
