A good load lugger for trade use


Absolutely nothing has gone wrong so far.

General Comments:

I find this model Transit more comfortable, quieter and easier to drive than any previous Transits. My only slight gripe is mine has the 76ps engine and would have been better with the next one up. As a trade van, it's always running with a full load of tools and equipment in the back, so the extra power would be nice. Having said that, the 75ps engine keeps up with traffic OK and returns 29 - 35mpg, depending on circumstances.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
