    Crafter has a timing belt that should be changed about !00k or 5 years if that snaps you will have to keep chickens in it,
    Sprinter has a chain but if it has not been serviced well they can let go too,
    big mileage thin ice all round, reason people get shut after 100k is past their sell by date  Reg!!!! Help needed!! 3913804730

    Thanks Reg. I'm going to give it a swerve. Messaged the guy. Asked him if there was a service history. He replied "don't know". I said "can you find out then". His response was "Van is always serviced to date and always got what needed". So I said "So, thats a no then?. He hasn't replied Reg!!!! Help needed!! 3025408739

    Minefield out there Reg!!!! Help needed!! 1498946960  If you must buy used make sure the owner had it serviced and not just the book stamped up (easy to do ) but has all the receipts to show you, if not walk away,
    Guy just bought a second hand Range Rover from a garage for £40k had it 4 weeks and the Crankshaft broke , look that up for a common problem, garage told him to go forth he should have known about it Reg!!!! Help needed!! 2419626307 
    so the guy took it into my garage Simon Green and asked him to verify what is up, £2k later Simon says your Crank shaft has broke, so now the guy wont pay Simon and has solicitors trying to sue Land Rover and the garage that sold him it, I can tell you now he wont get anywhere,Minefield out there

    Fred has left me his 2010 diesel Kia Rio to dispose of since leaving these shores. It has done a massive 318,000 miles! Before he got it one lady owner from new and full service history (receipts). I have driven it and it drives perfectly with everything working! I told him I would probably struggle to get £800 for it but to be honest I'm reluctant to let it go. £30 road tax and 109bhp whats not to like? Yeah, I know, the name on the bonnet.  Reg!!!!
