Apologies, it is a 2011 with just over 100k miles. Bought from a main dealer, always serviced by the same main dealer.

I’d have liked to have thought once you got to that sort of mileage you were good. I guess while I’m worried as I’m coming close to that (I’m at 255,000km) they die anywhere from next to no miles to max miles so I guess it’s still luck of the draw.
Why can’t they just wear out progressively rather than implode.
