2.4 5 cyl non turbo AAB engine, maybe not the fastest thing up hills but always gets us where we want to, she can still sit at 90 on the motorway, (just)!
takes all 6 of us with motorbikes or surfboards, we wouldnt be without her, Good times! A: A:

Thanks for your chuffedness campaman, pretty chuffed myself, A: dont know what the highest is i have heard of over 7's but not actually seen the clock, would be interesting to know,
mr t4 toad i gave her a new exhuast for 400000 so i think she may be expecting a little more for 500000, watch this space although it might be a few years til we find out,but i got faith! ;) ;)

When I got my t4 caravelle a couple of years ago
there was a t4 van that had been traded in with 465k on it
the owner has said the only reason he was trading it was he had picked up some euopean work and could not get breakdown cover on the old one

I recon with prompt service intervals they could go 1,000,000 miles :eek:

I met a taxi driver a while ago with a 2.5 merc oil burner and he said 500,000 easy

Said he had 3 that had gone that far without any problems

and as we know that VW's are far better than the mercs A:Rasp:

I've read an article in which the owner had 750k trouble free motoring in his 2.4d caravelle, I worked out that with the mileage that I do if mine does that it'll last till I'm 90!!!!!!!:eek: (mines petrol so if it hits the 1/2million I'll be happy)
