    welcome mate!
    good luck on the purchase!
    the only heads up i can give on this are basically the injectors can be suspect, but the dealers are doing a recall if not already done, and if its got a dpf fitted (diesel particle filter) and you do relatively short journeys (less than 20miles) then maybe you should not buy one! as short journeys are not liked by these motors as they get choked up!

    Any car with a dpf needs it's head kicked in at least once a week to clear the filter out....

    Welcome along :salute:

    Hi Jen, is it only the 170's that are fitted with the Dpf ?? ( was it on 2006 models ) dads 140 had a couple of missing' issues lately - but hey, he drives it like its worth 2.5 million !! Lol
