Time to Say Goodbye

Post by Gra on Mon Aug 07, 2017 9:49 pm

After 7 years of ownership it will soon be time to say goodbye to my Hijet. Not bad for a van that was bought in an emergency when my previous van was stolen. I had only expected to have it a few months at best but to my surprise it proved to be a very capable performer with its 1.3EFI engine and LPG system. It is silver so has flaking paint on its sides as all the silver ones do. The roof and tailgate have excellent paint though as I had them resprayed 3 or 4 years back. I use the Hijet in connection with my business so it has been regularly serviced and is very reliable with a good strong engine and positively no overheating issues.

The VW tracker website tells me the my new vehicle will be built next week so the Hijet will be available for sale some time in September. If anyone here is interested in buying it then please do pm me.

Oh I almost forgot, it has good headlights and new tyres as well.

You'll miss it and won't have a smile driving the VW like you do in the Hijet. Put some photos up and some more details.

Your probably right, Raggy. One things for sure, I'll certainly miss the ease of parking. I'll put some pics and more details on here over the next couple of weeks.

I'm not too sure at the moment, avfcdale, as I've no idea of its value. Perhaps more knowledgeable people here could give me an idea? It's on an 03 plate, done 95,000 miles, the sliding side doors are the window type and it has a tow bar fitted. It also has the door cards from the 7 seater and the interior roof padding/insulation.
I think the biggest thing in its favour though, is the fact it doesn't overheat and will take you anywhere. With the petrol and LPG you will get close on 400 miles without having to refuel.

Sorry to see you go Gra. Posting pics of the van would help generate interest.
