Its had a hard life as a rail maintenance van in Essex but just done 600 miles in lakes for 10 days up and down winding lanes and passes and it never missed a beat, no oil used either. Love it.

Work van has 540 000km (or 335 000 miles) it's a 2.5 TDI AJT engine.
Major repairs were injector pump, snapped belt, 2nd and 3rd gear synchros (they cost a fortune!).

302,000 here I:...

No major work during my ownership other than routine cambelt/waterpump change. Oh and a new radiator.

Touch wood, I seem to have more issues with chassis/brakes/suspension than engine/drivetrain.

OK, it's in kilometers, but who cares? Van is a '92 Westfalia, now with a lot more on the clock I:.
