How do you spell that ?

It's a Ford !

I recently tried out the new body style Ford Transit van (8 seats), a special version called "journey" with all goodies Ford could ever think of. These include a CD player stereo, aircon, SRS ( or STS ? ) airbags, central locking. Nothing more... Body : --------------- The new body design looks a...

3 year 100,000 mile warranty

poor after sales

The new ford transit 2.4 duratorq they say is the backbone of britian, or is it? As an independant motor vehicle repairer looking after a fleet of 250 transits I see more of the good and bad points of the van than most, even seeing the after sales from the customers side and not just what Ford...

For the past 2 1/5 years I have been driving a Vauxhall Movano but recently I have been forced to switch from my Movano to the new Ford Transit van and was rather hesitant to say the least! I really enjoyed driving the Movano and after taking a cursory look at the Transit I was definitely NOT...

Cheap Cheap Cheap

Unreliable, underpowered, noisy and basic

I drive quite regularly a 1997 Ford Transit purchased new as a company vehicle. It has just reached around 50,000 miles. We have experienced the following problems: Cam belt snapped before due (£800 engine repairs) Steering pinion completely worn, steering slipping! Ignition lock failed. Key...

Very reliable and spare parts are in abundance.

Keep an eye on the rust.

I bought my first transit about four years ago.I only had £1500 to spend, so I searched Auto Trader and found a P reg for £1450, which i purchased. I wasn't particularly looking for a Ford, any van would have done at the right price, and this one filled that criteria. It had 140,000 on the clock...

Practicality

Fuel ecconomypoor and looks poor

I could highly recommend a Ford Transit. Mine has proved itself as a valuable asset. It is petrol so was cheap to buy. It will soon be converted to LPG, which will make it cheap to run. I have even been offered money for it as a courier company want an LPG van instead of a diesel since the high...

I bought a Transit with 100000 miles on the clock, and a week after the fuel pump went at the cost of £1200. 18 months later and less than 10,000 miles same thing happened again. Seemingly the pump has a guarantee period of 12 months. The pump was fitted at one of Fords main dealers but they were...

I bought a 2003 350 van new off the lot and have sooooooooooo many problems with it. It has had a new dash (speedo) new turbo rear brake seals (twice) front shocks, starter motor, to name a few and the van has only done 80,000klm. It is now out of warranty and I am getting rid of it and will never buy another Ford. We also have a similar aged Toyota Van and had nothing but regular services. I have no faith in Ford and have had a really bad run, so bad that I will never buy another.
