53 Espace 3.0 DCi - pitfalls?

Looking for a car to replace our 150000 mile Galaxy which is on its last legs. Have seen a 53 reg 3.0 DCi Initiale Espace which is very smart.

It has 86K on the clock and I am slightly concerned about it needing major surgery before too long.

Can anyone tell me how long-lived these beasties are, and if there are any specific weak spots to look for? Should I be even considering it? It has to be a reliable family car and do another 20000 miles a year, ideally for at least 5 years. If I can get 180000 miles out of it I'd be happy.
