“58 swb111 panel van 70k from van ive had”

Written on: 12/03/2013 by wooshy (1 review written)

Ok then ive read the other reviews ad im very surprised, I bought the van new fully specd excluding alloys as I work in london and know what wheels go through. Ive used it for work, camping, travelling and it laps it all up. A review here said that rear wheel drive vans were absolutly rubbish... yes the van does slip a bit if you go fast round wet roundabouts, but what I find is that the back stepping out is predictable and easy to correct...if your any sort of a good driver. Ive been caught in foot deep snow in norfolk and the only vehicals making it through... you guessed it the vitos... If your a poor driver that panics then you need to learn how to handle a rear wheel drive. 111 is plenty powerfull I didnt see the point going for the v6 too heavy for doing 5mph in london, constantly get 400-420 on a fill up. Im writing this review as im getting my new one in april, exactly the same but its now the 113 I believe. From new parts wise upto this year it has only needed tyres brakes.. however this year it needed a erv valve, the aircon this summer decided to develope a leak, and the rear springs have snapped a 1" bit off the end.
My biggest mistake was having qwikfit disks and pads fitted I fell for the free pads waffle, the rwal pisser is they cost more than the merc proper parts and have squeeked and faded since new.. thank god theyve now been changed.
Dont go for remote locking as you need to srand infront of the drivers door to activate it...which in my book isnt really remote....!!!!
The reviewer said it dents easy... yep it will so have the inside lined for 80 quid and dont drive into things
I think it has been a great van
