Hello Mike


 


Thanks for your reply.


 


That seems about right but I am receiving conflicting news from Nissan Ireland - having given the chassis number of the vehicle they seem to think it weighs 1445kg kerb weight- which I imagine means unladen weight?....and 2505kg gross weight- which is its loading capacity I guess.


 


By my calculations 1445kg is 1.445 tonnes right?


 


Here is the chassis number - i wonder if you can shed any further light on this :


 


Chassis no. VSKMEVC23U0160144


 


Nissan UK said it was a van made for the Malaysian market but the chassis no. seems to suggest it was made for the irish market according to someone else at Nissan uk- maybe it was made for both.


 


Anyway please let me know what you think herein?


 


best wishes

Yes 1445 Kg is 1.445 tonnes and the best information that I can come up with from the chassis number is this is the unladen weight is 1.175. 2505 kg is the loading capacity. Thank you.

JustAnswer... Has seen a spike since October in legal questions from readers about layoffs, unemployment and severance.
Mr Pole-Carew contacted Value and was told that the £820 taken was the company’s ‘estimate’ of the cost to repair the clutch. He said he had contacted a Ford adviser on JustAnswer who told him ‘a perfectly good clutch is highly unlikely to fail from four to five hours of good, or even very bad, driving'.
