Hi im Daniel

Newbie to T4 bus!

newly purchased my 1st bus in surf blue 2001/Y reg 2.5 TDi 102 Caravelle 8 seater variant for £3750 got price down from £4000, with 167,000 miles FSH mostly VW/specialists. did I pay a good price?

few questions as newcomer to Caravelles;

1. RFL is £215 a year as V5 says MPV and taxed as light commercial vehicle, surely if registered 08/05/2001 it would be CO2 emission based at higher rate of £270 as per gov.uk website

2. the temp gauge not working?

3. cambelt/fuel pump belt being done at Colbornes £510 next week as last changed 67,000 miles!!!

4. Disappointed no ABS, ESP, Airbags on this spec, however has air con/rear heater controls on sliding door is that standard?

5. Is the TDI 102 good on fuel and will it do many miles with regular maintenance?


replies to my questions and any help most greatful! great site by the way!

I'm not really up on prices of vans, doesnt sound horrendous and so long as you're happy it's all good! T:

The tax has just been discussed here:

Have a search on here the temp gauge not working is a common fault.

Having aircon is good as its prohibitively expensive / difficult to retrofit!

MPG you should get around 35, and the engines go on forever with good maintenance!
