Depends on which engine; I have had a TD5 and currently own a TDi200 & TDi300.

The earlier models TDi200/300 have timing belt issues which can easily be managed, generally every 80,000, but would warrant attention.

My Defender 110 (TDi200) has done around 300,000 and the engine is running fine. The 130 Twin Cab has had a reconditioned engine, but that was always our intention when purchased and we deliberately sourced a vehicle that required it.

The use you intend to put the vehicle to might dictate how closely you want to look at the engine, but the best advice for any vehicle that has done that sort of kilometres is to have either a full service history (that you are confident with) or have a very good look at it. That would apply to any breed of vehicle.

As mentioned earlier; take a look at the AULRO site.
