Front wheel bearings last 5 to 12 K miles which I have been told is usual!!! (direct from a dealer)
New injector tips at 180,000 miles.
This van is not a working vehicle but has been to Prague and beyond twice with no problems apart from smoking a bit when faced with eastern european fuel.
People scoffed at the chances of the first journey - but hey she/it did it twice!
The front wheel bearing are THE biggest problem. I have been told they are crap as standard. Have tried various makes and would like BL/Rover/BMW to give me some cash for the expense of buying and fitting them.
Dealer service (?), let 'em do a cam belt and they split it on fitting. I found this as the water pump went a week or two later and fitted it myself.
Doing a proper job yerself an' all that jazz.
Oh well keep up the good work and we'll smoke off into the distance (Know anyone with a turbo engine kicking about?)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
