Hyundai iLoad: Do the turbochargers 'blow up'?

Asked by Peter

I'm in the market for a used van. I believe that the problem of turbochargers "blowing up" in the Hyundai iLoad was solved at some stage.

Could you tell me which year/MY's are "safe" to buy?

The problem was caused by sludge building up in the oil and starving the engine and turbocharger of oil. It was recommended that oil changes should be done much more frequently than the recommended 15,000 km/12 months to keep the oil fresh and clean.

Buy the latest model you can afford and have it serviced every 5000-7000 km. Do that and you should have a good run.
