Wink Hi everyone am new to this forum but not civics

Hi im looking into going from a Honda civic 1.4s to a 2.2cdti. The one im interesested in has full Honda service history but mileage of 140,000. Im not unduly worried about the mileage as my current Honda is on 130,000 but im wondering if there is anything i need to look out for when i go for a view and test drive.
Thanks for any help received

Well guess that one wasn't meant to be on the plus side you can still have fun test driving lots of other civics and its worth holding out and finding the right model/requirements you want. Welcome to the forum and happy car hunting.
