I would be more concerned with low miles on the 1.5 a high mileage engine is less likely to suffer the problems some seem to get and will no doubt have had some parts replaced already

We have 56 reg taxis with 400k miles on them and all still have the original engine bar 1 that dropped a valve and destroyed itself ok they are peugeots but hey all french is crap
Thanks. I know many diesel engines are good for high miles but never had anything below 1.9 before so a wee bit cautious hence the questions. The fact it has good history may persuade me to go take a look.
