Re: Traffic van SL27 115 07

Aside from the usual signs of use & abuse that all vans suffer from in varying amounts, I would check for conclusive proof that the cambelt has been changed at the correct interval, and that there is some way to confirm the mileage as genuine.

For peace of mind, I would also ensure it is serviced as a condition of sale, that way the impact of any missing service history is minimised.

At least you have some comfort in knowing the van must be fairly reliable to have covered some 20k per year.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
