What year?

And has it a good documented service history including T- belt changes?

Have you test drove it and how does it feel generally ie:- gearbox performance etc?

Hi..there..

Well Service history and Timing belt replacement history would be something to enquire about..at that mileage it should of had it all done by now or on that mileage as it stands...of course proof in how its performs will determine if its good buy or not..On a diesel its not uncomon to see mileage that high to be honest around that year id say maybe a little too high...but thats doesnt mean to say its a bad car..if its been well looked after then it shouldnt have any bearing on not considering it...obviously of course you have wear and tear items like brakes/suspension/tyres etc so a check on MOT history as per here https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-history

might help let you see what it will need or has failed on...But mileage id say is little high for that year but as above with what i have mentioned will determine if its worth it or not buy looking at the information you get for it aswell as the history and test drive..I do hope this helps
