We have a 2014 View V-6, with 28K miles-and we really like it.

I would really rather have the 5 cylinder you have.

The mileage on yours is really low-so-there should be a lot of use left.

I recommend getting ALL the services done , or make sure they are up to date. The turbo hoses are pretty notorious on Views of those years-so verify all the fuel , filter, lubricants, and turbo stuff. You really do not want to break down on the road with a Sprinter chasis.

Maintenance is the key to enjoying your new coach- do not ignore it.

The OM647 I-5 diesel is a well-regarded engine with a good reliability record, but like any model it has a few things to watch out for. Check that the turbocharger resonator has been upgraded (inexpensive to remedy if it has not) and also pull any plastic covers and inspect for any black deposits around the injectors (they sometimes leak, leaving a crusty deposit of burned fuel.) If this condition exists it can be very tricky to get the injector out without damage. Most will show no problem, especially at low mileage, but it's worth taking a look.
