Re: high mileage

The 1.5 Dci engines have a history of sticking piston rings - insist on watching for signs of burning oil from the exhaust during a cold and then a hot start. Also let it idle for 10 or 15 minutes and then rev it - again watching for signs of oil burning.

Whilst high mileage isn't always a poor measure of quality or relibility it can dramatically affect resale values.
