A cracking van that drives like a car


I have had no major problems with the vehicle since buying it new. I have replaced tyres which wore evenly, and had it serviced twice, both within the recommended distance. The heated mirrors stopped heating, which was due to a blown fuse, and put right without charge by my supplying dealer.

General Comments:

The vehicle is very car-like, and drives very well. I was very pleased with its performance from new, compared to my previous Volkswagen Transporter which was sluggish.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

We have recently experienced problems with the Vito (2006) - water gets into the fuel system when it rains; would be interested to hear of anyone else suffering the same.
