Are Vivaros prone to engine problems?

I have just spent quite a lot of money on a 2010 Vauxhall Viavaro 1.9 CDTI which has been converted into a camper. I love the van, but am worried about stories that surround the injectors. Apparently they are prone to corrosion, with water leaking into the engine. Is this true?
