    How long do 1.7 DTi engines last?

    Going to go through with the Astra van plans, preferably and older model to get it cheaper.

    As the title says how long do them engines last until? There's a lot of 100-110k miles about for decent prices, I do about 6-7k miles a year and would probably keep the van for quite a few years...if the engine conks out it'll be changed but I want the derv to last through my college/apprenticeship years.

    Ive heard of one that went up to 450k as a taxi but then they got rid of it cos the doors fell off but the car still ran sweet.

    Great cheers lads, really not bothered about high mileage for this one, saying that 100k is pretty good considering they're work vans.

    450k!! Not surprised the doors fell off with all the customers mind!
