Currently going through the process of buying my first T5 (never been this excited before!).
It's a 2009 Caravelle 2.5 130 and I've heard through the grapevine that some garages may not be able to lift it on a standard car lift. Does anyone know the kerb weight of this vehicle and what standard garage car lifts are able to lift?
Cheers

2313kg + depending on exact model. Some Range Rovers are more than that so I doubt garages are going to limit themselves by getting a lift that only takes 2tonnes Max. It will depend on the lift but I'm sure you'll be OK. All these T5 drivers must be taking them somewhere successfully. Maybe go into your preferred garage and check what their lift will take if you're concerned.
