How reliable is a 1987 190D? newbie to MB diesels

I'm looking into a 1987 190D Benz? How reliable are they? Anything that I should look for or be careful of? Any and all advise is appreciated.

Built toward the end of the MB golden age the 201s exhibit superior build quality and reliability. The 2.5 L five cylinder OM602 makes 93 hp but proves adequate for the 2900 lbs. car. The interior can be a little claustrophobic but is otherwise nicely Mercedes efficient. Make sure a compression test is done on the engine before buying, especially if service records are not provided. Although well engineered and designed make sure you have a mechanic check the car. Good luck.
