“reliable, excellent service”

Written on: 16/04/2014 by Fitch356 (1 review written)

i hear people slate transit vans, but i can only say after owning and driving them for 20 odd years, i,ve found them brilliant. very few problems and very small ones, none kept me from driving them to work, running repair costs are nothing. everything is available and cheap. bought 2nd hand 2-4 years old kept for 6-10 years without problems. i will say this , i don,t do big miles and sell them before they have 150,000 on the clock. i carry 500kgs plus everywhere i go with all the tools… Read Full Review

AGREE , GREAT VANS BUT THE RUST PROBLEM IS OFF PUTTING IF YOU USE THE VAN AS AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE COMPANY ESP WHITE.
HOPE THE NEW TRANSIT IS GALVANISED THEN I MAY TRADE MY VIVARO IN FOR ONE NEXT TIME.

“56 Plate Ford Transit T260 TDCi”

Written on: 07/03/2012 by gibbo3673 (1 review written)

I previously had a Peugeot expert (non turbo) which was a bit small and underpowered, but mechanically bullet proof, and ran hassle free for 5 years. I decided to get a bigger van, and because transits are so abundant, I never questioned whether they were any good........ massive mistake. I look on forums now, and they truly are dreadful vehicles with massive and known design faults. The stories about my van are too numerous, so I'll just give you the results to my pocket.... In just under 3… Read Full Review

“My Ford Transit 280 SWB 100bhp has a rusty interior...”

Written on: 06/05/2004 by MULLAMAN (1 review written)

My Ford Transit 280 SWB 100bhp has a rusty interior roof. The Van is not even 3 years old. I spoke to Ford customer helpline but more like unhelpfull line. Dispite the van not being over 3 years old they were not interested as I had bought it second hand. Also it had not been serviced for a year and 4 months? The rust inside the roof has been caused by no paint being sprayed on the panel it is quite a large area and if not sorted will rust out the roof from the inside!!

Written on: 17/09/2004

Totaly agree with you, i have found there product and customer care to be .......well....crap! Even though my transit is the 300swb on an X it looks poorly finished on the inside roof area and the paint work on the outside is so thin we get rust marks making us constantly T-cut. Its done 50k and has had a new gearbox, turbo, starter motor and alternator, wich we have been forced to fit ourselves. When contacting our local Ford dealer and explaining the van is needed and relied upon to run our business we are presented with either a 3-4 week waiting time for parts (at ridiculus prices)or a two week waiting period for them to fit it in to there workshops?! Having had many transits to be honest the newer they are the worse they get...come on Ford pull yer fingers out.
