We have a 2003 Swift Kontiki and AFAIK that has the same engine and we have a similar mileage, check when the cambelt was last changed as failure of that is VERY expensive....

We love our Swift and would not change it even though it is now old....

Age, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder IMO.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I had the 2Ltr 84BHP engine which travelled most of the mountain passes in Western Europe and Scandinavia.
However it is low powered even in a 3500Kg motorhome but cruising at 60 to 65 MPH was perfectly reasonable.
If it's a larger engine (apart from 5th gear on the 2.8Ltr) then all should be well
Eurojohn and the big 'P' will fill any cracks in.

I try and state simple facts in a nice way.
