Then and now .

Postby olympia5776 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 12:21 am

A bit of "deja vu " this last week when I realised that I was working in the same place as I was when I had bought my van in Feb. 2006.
Still going strong and earning it's keep.
Easily the most reliable vehicle I've owned . :D

Thanks . It's a 2001 TDDI and running sweetly . It's done 105K with oil and filter changes every 4 K miles due to the short trips . I soak all the sills and chassis cavities once and sometimes twice a year but even then I had to do a little rust repairs in 2016 but took my time and did it myself properly .
I really keep it out of sentimental value now but as long as it keeps going it'll stay with me .
Strangely enough the condition of it brings me business .
