They are a highly strung engine, so it seems most of the problems come about because they're not being maintained properly. Make sure the service history is good - and keep it serviced to the book - and you shouldn't see any major issues.

We have a 1.4 Multiair on 110k at the min, and we bought it at 99k with only 3 service stamps... so far no mechanical problems at all. It is a bit rattly at this mileage but does the job.

Re: Should i buy 1.4 multiair

They are rattly from new, it's just the way the MuliAir unit works..
The correct oil, as described in the service handbook, is very important.
Best practice to change it a bit more often, like every 6-7000 mls, incl. filter.
Often overlooked, but VERY important at these somewhat higher milages, is to change the MultiAir strainer/filter, it's NOT in the sevice schedule, but should be changed at every ~30.000mls.
Engine will last forever.
