Invaluable, reliable and economical load lugger and family transport

We have owned this from new (pre-reg) and have covered 88,000 almost fault free miles. It has served as family transport for five adults, lugged loads to and from University as well as the daily commute. The only problem has been a leaky thermostat, fixed under warranty. This model does not have a dual mass flywheel or a diesel particulate filter. Fuel economy varies with weather and tyres. The supplied Michelin Energy returned around 49mpg overall but handling wasn't the best. I always idle the engine before switching off and have used a Millers diesel additive most of the time. The gear change is not as notchy as some suggest. Motorway cruising is pretty effortless, but bendy A roads can result in too much body roll for passengers if driven too briskly. I plan to run it into the ground - the only problem then being what to replace it with, given the DMFs and DPFs on modern diesels. My only other gripe is that I would like the driver's seat to go back further - I like a high driving position with a flat seat squab (i.e. not tilted backwards), but the adjustment fir this is rather crude.
