High mileage 159 2.4 jtd??

Anyone care to share experiences of higher mileage 159 2.4 jtd? I have had several 3.2 Busso engined cars so pretty much know what issues would crop up but never having owned a diesel I wonder what to look for and what would be considered high mileage?

I am keeping the 2 v6's!!!

Most issues are caused by short trips, so in theory, other than a water pump and suspension arms, a high miler may be a better bet, other than cosmetically, than a low miler.

My 2.4 is a 56 reg with 80k miles.

I know I knock the poor old thing for reliability. But I can honestly say that since it broke down last month and spending £1,000 on repairs it has been faultless

Ps. A sense of humour helps
