HI
I'm new to VW in general and T5s specifically, but have identified the T5 as the preferred adapted vehicle for carting my family (including a little one in a wheelchair) around.

My question (and hopefully I'm in the right forum) relates to mileage. I've seen a variety of vans advertised with high (100,000 to 200,000) miles and prices up to £12,000.
How long do these vehicles last for (mileage wise) and should I be put off one with 184,000 on the clock?

Thanks in anticipation

Peter

If you've got 12k to spend then try your local vw van centre,you'll be surprised how reasonable to they are compared to private sales,plus you'll get a vw warranty and vw breakdown cover wiith it.

They do seem to go on forever my friends van has nearly 200k on the clock and stil drives like new! But obviously you need t know what your buying and possibly take a mechanic with you but I would have no hesitation to buy one with 100+ on the clock as long as it was checked over by someone with a bit of engine knowledge!
