    I see Swift are to increase prices by 9% what with high fuel prices, and the credit crunch. I have to wonder is this a good comercial decission.

    As most of their goods will be bought in possibly from abroad I woud expect them to see some increases due to value of Euro, and of course transport costs. The other thing is they are selling a Luxury product as opposed to an Essential product, so they must believe they can achieve higher prices.

    Hi All,

    Perhaps the price increase is justified because of the freedom from design faults and incredibly high reputation enjoyed by Fiat's customer service.

    That's a big increase so a £4000 van now will be £43600 does this mean that the price of used vans be uplifted?
