    My brother in law is looking at a user VW T5. Itís a 2015 with 110k on the clock.

    Are there any DPF issues with this model at this age & mileage? A quick google suggests some try and regenerate too often and have issues that get quite expensive to sort?

    Also any other issues we should look out for?
    Cheers!

    I would think there wouldn't be an issue at that mileage. It's usually low mileage which causes DPF issues. VCDS may give you a measurement on the DPF load if you can access one.

    Yes I have had to do a few DPF cleans on the 2L 4 cylinder models, fact of life with a diesel though-no way around it.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
