I've just managed to make access to the forum again after being unable to raise it on my computer or my Nexus tablet for 1½years ! I don't know what the problem was but it seems to be solved now.

I see there are only two postings on the Carry forum since I was last able to access it so I suppose others have had the same problem. It's good to be back !

G'day

I just found that the forum is back up. My vans are still going strong. My daily driver is getting close to 300,000kms. I will start checking in again.

Access to the forum is still intermittent but I hope Mr James Wade will be able to sort out the problems. Over my many years of membership, it has been a useful and interesting facility and I hope it continues. Unfortunately, the long period of unavailability has lost many of the regular members who, presumably, have not checked back to see if the forum is available again. I don't know how we can tell them and call them back.

Great to see the forum back, sadly I sold my carry van last December after nearly 14years of ownership, I retired from decorating and couldn't justify keeping it, 2005 reg with 111,000 on the clock when I sold it and in very good condition except for some light surface corrosion around the rear wheel arches. I sold the van on EBay and after a slow start I was amazed to get £2300 for it, I think I only paid £4999 new for it, I was told by Vans Direct It was the last silver one in the country may have been just sales patter. I can confirm the V310 scan tool, fault code reader works on the 2005 carry in case it helps anyone, used it to confirm the oxygen sensor was putting the check engine light on, apart from that and two starter motors I can honestly say it had been super reliable. Will still check in on the forum in case I can throw my hat in the ring on a subject.

All the best

I think you paid £7999 as that was the 'going price' at the end of the Carry era in 2005/6. Nonetheless you did well to get £2300 for your Carry but I am sure from your other postings that it was well-maintained.

On a depreciation over 14 years of only £400 per year, your van maintained its capital value very well. I look forward to future postings from you. With my best wishes for your retirement. (I've been retired for 27 years now: what a good scheme retirement is ! )

Cheers Alan for the retirement wishes.

I think my carry was cheaper because it was pre-registered in September 2005 and I purchased it in March 2006 with 132 delivery miles on it, I remember seeing green algae around the window seal and thinking it's been parked up a while. I think Suzuki has a brand take some beating my son has a swift and I have had Suzuki motorbikes although not the poshest interiors,(the cars ) with me its all about reliability.
