2005 Renault Master LWB 140DCI 3.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A tough work horse with great flexibility
Central locking key fob only works over a short distance - it's not the end of the world.
34000 miles, immobiliser problem - sorted very quickly by the dealer.
70000 miles, heater blower failed. Sorted by the dealer.
85000 miles, drive shafts have begun to wobble - on going repair.
85000 miles, missed recall for rear axle adjustment - on going repair.
85000 miles, engine pulleys sounding rough - on going repair.
This van is superb. I run a delivery company and this has taken everything we can throw at it. Including one European cannonball run (it's not a race, it's a rally, Ha).
A huge fuel tank and gives great MPG's - around 31MPG on average on A roads around Cornwall and Devon.
The dealer gave a 3 year 100000 mile warranty when I got it, and even though they needed some motivation, always come through with repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The van is now on 2702000 miles. The gearbox is past its best, but the bodywork and engine are still fantastic. 2 drive shafts at 160000 miles, new injector pump and injectors at 200000 miles. Can't complain at that.
Great van, still leaves our 2 new 2012 model 150 Masters eating dust.

Could not agree more; the best van I have ever bought, owned from new for 10 years. 2015 and still going.
