Auto replaced at 280000.
Carby re coed at 280000; still had heaps of problems with carby. The carby models always have problems.
Air con pump playing up and noisy from 280000, but still worked.
Front calipers and disk replaced 280000.
Diff had bad back lash from the date of purchase; quite annoying.
Rear automatic seal continually leaked oil over the exhaust, and covered the underbody of the van in heaps of oil. 3 different mechanics could not fix or find out why. My mate's Express does the same thing.
Radiator replaced at 320000.
Side sliding door roller rail wore out about 270000. Door would rattle and was hard to close.
Both front door windows are hard to wind up and down, and the winding mechanism was worn out.
Driver's seat belt never retracted properly, and always stopped door from closing if trying to get out quickly like a courier driver (me).
Lucky to get 50000 out of a set of tyres. Brake pads; the best you can get lasted about 50000.
Air con mount broke at 320000; very hard to get a replacement.
The van had a vibration in the cab if revved over 4 grand; very annoying, could never work out what was doing this. It was like a panel vibration.
Road noise quite noisy when driving on the highway.
Rear tail lights blew globes every few weeks.
Exhaust broke just after the exhaust manifold. This is a single pipe set up; very hard to find the part again.
Overall lots of things went wrong / lots of little things too, that most people would not fix, dash light etc.
On petrol it used a lot of petrol, maybe get 400klm to a tank if lucky, on gas about 250 - 300klm with 53ltr LPG tank. 60ltr water capacity gas tank.
Very hard to get the timing right for both LPG and petrol so I just tuned it for gas, would always start 1st time on gas or petrol.
It never let me down on the move, all repairs were done after a days work.
Started 1st time every time.
Quite cheap on gas.
Could sit on 130klm with over 1 ton in the back.
SWB very easy to park and move around.
Had plenty of power; gas and petrol.
Air con very cold, even on 40 plus deg days.
Carried over 1 tonne very easily and smoothly; it drove better with a load.
If possible, I would stay away from carby models.
Good looking van with plenty of space in front and rear cargo area.
Resale value is crap.
