hello at this milage there' shouldn't be much wrong with it mechanicallyask when the van was last serviced and how many miles to the gallon they get as this is a good indication of the engine health( should be about 40mpg on average)The 1.6-litre diesel feels too strained on the motorway and at higher speeds, negating any economy benefits of this motor.Seems to be a problem of anti-roll bars repeatedly snapping on Dispatches used as 8/9 seater MPVs.Recall 05-01-2009: Accelerator pedal may not return to original position after being depressed.Recall 09-08-2010: Brake linkage rod not made to manufacturing standard and may cause premature wear.Recall 05-10-2010: Exterior lights may switch off without warning.Recall 22-02-2011: Fuel may leak due to pipe rubbing on fuel filter support in engine bay.Recall 11-07-2011: power steering may fail due to wiring coming into contact with other components.Recall 31-08-2011: Cylinder head may leak oil and cause engine fire.Recall 28-03-2012: Front left tyre may have suffered damage from deflation during transport.
