John might be right re the 2.3Jtd, I only drove one once on a test drive, I took it up a quite steep hill and it felt up to it, but I didn't go for a long run in it so top gear wasn't tested, which brings us to the Achilles heel of that model, top (5th) gear can fail, it's not an expensive fix, and can be avoided with good maintenance, they run fine in 4th by the way, 5th is pretty much an overdrive in reality, best to stay out of it below 50mph ish.
