    with all due respest. i'd never consider a new van. experience has taught me that they are designed solely to make money for main dealers, due to the electrinics.

    case 1. a renault trafic, 2,5, years old. stopped dead, engine management light on. took main dealers 3 months to get it going. lasted another 3 months, then died again. same fault. sensors that had just been replaced replaced again. 6 weeks later. dead. bloody rubbish.

    case 2. a ford cmax, 3 years old 35,000 miles. went into limp mode. showed transmission fault. started by RAC. no faults found by dealer. 3 weeks later, car locked and parked over night. come morning, all 4 windows opened 3/4 way down. and that's not allowing for no spare wheel, no jack, and a stupid foam aerosol that's useless to repair a damaged tyre' even if it hadn't gone out of date.

    crumbs! i wouldn't have it any other way, all our vans are less than 2 year old, dont put a foot wrong, 20k service intervals, cheap tax, good on fuel, comfortable, safe, no mot, and if it does go wrong its into the dealers under warranty. - it doesn't make sense to run an old van.

    it does for me. mine's 13 years old. not had any faults in the 2 years i've had it. MOTs are just an hour formality while i have a bacon bap and a coffee. and bought without finance, depreciation zero.

    Horses for course's I guess. I'm glad it works for you, for me I wouldn't fancy 30k a year in a 13 year old van.
