Should I be concerned about buying a high mileage Hyundai Santa Fe?

I’m thinking of buying a Hyundai Santa Fe diesel, (to tow a caravan) which is 2.5 years old with full service history and 51000 miles. Should I be concerned about the unusually high mileage?

A higher than average mileage is not necessarily a concern if the vehicle condition is good and the service history is complete. A mileage such as this would suggest lots of motorway miles, which in many respects is better than a lot of stop-start traffic, particularly if you are planning to tow.
