    Question VW transporter T4 1999

    Afternoon all

    my dads just bought a VW transporter T4 1.9 TD special 800, 1999 for quite cheap to be fair, on just over 80k miles, 2 previous owners and fair bit of service history, wood paneling throughout the rear of it, 12 months mot and 6 months tax for £1900

    Does anyone know of any faults at all to look out for? do they rust easily? it seems quite structurally sound underneath, and body work pretty good condition, sure someone said that VW's are treated to stop rust

    Well mechanically that 1.9 lump will go on forever and a day, if its looked after fluid wise.
    Ive seen some cosmetically rusty ones, but shouldn't be serious underneath, just some builders etc dont really care about them, and let them get really rusty.

    Ah good stuff

    Seems a pretty solid engine, and the turbo doesn't look old at all

    My dad bought this as his old 1997 transit has rotted before the engine dies, which runs really well to be fair, shame really
