I've had my Town Ace five years. It's never let me down. The only thing I've spent on it is for new tyres and a new battery, and a bulb for the interior room.
This is the best car/van I've ever had. Superb wheelbase for turning. The interior room seats swivel, and naughtily we have used this to load our disabled friend into the car. He is about 28 stone too! His parents, my husband and I are friends, and we are all big people, yet this vehicle has happily pulled us all plus shopping for long trips out without complaint. We have even had a three piece suite in there, and it's done us proud on several house moves for relatives and pals.
It's not the cheapest car to run, but for its age, not bad at all. The insurance can be a bit high too. The radio has been a bit of a let down, as it is limited to receiving Radio 2 or Radio 5 Live. It is very light bodied, and so it's not great in wind, but it's not unsafe at all in my opinion.
I've had lots of cars, and this has been the best. It looks like I just lost it though as someone ran into it while it was parked up, and as it is almost fifteen years old, sadly I anticipate it will have to be scrapped. I'm bracing myself, because it will tear my heart out to part with it. Whatever its 'faults', it's been worthy every penny.
