Re: What van

I'm not a fan of the Trafic/Primastar/Vivaro vans either,they have a number of expensive common faults and personally I wouldn't have one.

Gearbox problems aren't uncommon,and I'd avoid the quick-shift at all costs.Injectors can seize in both the 1.9 and 2.0 dCi units,and injector failures aren't uncommon.Rear brake calipers seize for a past time,strut bearings and bottom joints are made of cheese,general running faults due to failed sensors/ EGR valves/high pressure diesel faults are common......and due to the design of the engine bay many jobs that should be straight forward are a right royal pain in the ar$e!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
