Hi there, I'm looking to buy a Toyota 4runner but am wondering about the engine. It has a 3 litre turbo diesel but it has a lot of milage on it (290.000 km / ca 180.000 miles).

Does anyone know how these engines do after this much use and how likely it would be for me to have to replace the engine soon?

Like most cars with age and miles driven it will usually come down to the service history and how it was treated.
I would see if you can find a mechanic who knows his trade and is knowledgeable when it comes to Surfs to give it a good thorough inspection and test drive as Iceland is not somewhere I would want to have a breakdown in the middle of winter.
