    Thought I would ask this question on the Tech /Mech side.
    We are considering purchasing a brand new work van. Always bought second hand in the past. We have been looking at nearly new vans and to be honest there is not a lot of difference price wise with a van under a year old and a new one.
    The size range would be SWB transit or similar like a Vivaro.
    The new Transit Custom is on offer and comes in around £19000 including Cat 1 alarm, Ply lining and fold down roof bars.
    Hopefully a new van will see us through to retirement.
    Any advice welcome.
    Thanks

    Get the Tranny why do you think they have been a 'work horse' since 1966?

    If you take a look at the transit owners forum there is lots of information on it, ie any good or bad points for certain models.
