Smile Re: Trafic Vs Transit.

Hi, I have to say I like the trafic. Good sturdy van & as you have had no major reliability issues, get another. The Transit isn't a great van, it's good but not great. As mentioned before, Flywheel problems, corrosion & the fact that EVERYBODY has one.

Just a thought, I drove a 2002 Mercedes Sprinter 313cdi for three years covering 165,000 miles & other than routine service parts, the only bits that needed replacing was one rear shocker at 37,000 miles, Front pads at 50k, front & rear pads at 92k then front & rear disks & pads at 156k! Drove like a car & with the chip fitted bloody went like one too! I know they are a lot more expensive than the competition but, you do get what you pay for & a properly maintained Sprinter will outlast any other manufacturers offerings(except maybe the VW lt but its essentially the same van so doesn't count. Or maybe counts more as it's cheaper?)
The choice is yours my friend.
Oh, and good idea on the vinyl wrapping Velsatisfied.

Did I just bugger my own argument?
