Wave High mileage 159 1.9 Jtdm......

Looking to buy an 08 jtdm 159 with 130k+ miles.....Other than the obvious belts etc what advice can anybody provide on any issues to look out out or even whether to completely avoid the purchase. The seller is asking around 3500.
Thanks in advance.

The gearbox should first on your list. Check for whining when driving.

Gearbox, wheel bearings, check the front sub frame for rust, waterpump and cambelt change, glow plug change, check the parking sensors if it has them.

Check the buyers guide in the stickies, but at that age, for the 1.9 the m32 gearbox is the main concern...as mentioned.
