Should I keep or sell my high mileage 2007 Renault Kangoo Van?

I've got a petrol 2007 Renault Kangoo Van that's done 150,000 miles. A little battered, but in good working order. My dilemma is: selling it for what it is worth, or just wait until it eventually gives in?

Given its age and high mileage, your van won’t be worth a great deal. However, if it hasn’t been any trouble then I’d recommend running it on until it shows signs of mechanical decline. With regular servicing and oil changes (every 10,000 miles) it may well run for another two or three years.

If running costs are starting to increase then it might be time to change. I’d recommend the Ford Transit Connect: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/ford/transit-con.../
