I had one from new in 2012 and it covered in 4 years 120k and been remapped from new also carried in excess 1t all the time and never missed a bit pretty much bomb proof.
Good luck with your search ac and comfort seats is a must.

I don't think it will be that relevant as it's the older model with the older engine but thanks anyway.

Sounds promising this one has ac but not comfort seats. Did yours have the om651engine in yours?

Am I right in saying they all suffer from timing chain problems?

2007 and 2011 Vitos are both W639 - it was just a facelift in 2010. The current version (W447) came out in 2014.

Yup the OP mentioned the OM651, just pointing out that the van itself wasn't a different model ("the older model with the older engine") ... just a facelift.
