Now you'll probably not take any notice of me but.

If the diesel vehicle has been regularly serviced and maintained good. They'll go on for at least 250,000 miles.

If your going to do lots of miles again worth getting but if your going to be doing less than 10,000 miles per year not.

They are much cleaner and less noisier than they used to be.

However if something major does go wrong they can be more costly to repair than petrol driven cars.

I hope this helps Spodge.

Life is not a rehearsal.

You only have one shot at it.

One thing MANY people don't know about TURBO diesels is that they should let the engine idle after a journey for up to 2 mins (depending on how hard you were driving). If this simple rule is neglected then the life of your turbo will be dramatically reduced and will be costly to replace/repair.

As Podgy Pete says, if these are properly serviced and maintained they will last for ages...
