    Default Looks like i'm turning.

    To FORD. Don't shoot me just yet.





    Off the the auctions on Wednesday to look at buying a small van to use as a work horse now I'm back working in the UK.
    Got my eye on a few 54 plate transit connects between 55 and 80k miles and a few 04/54 plate VX combo's 50k miles.
    Got a budget of 2k so lets see what i end up with.

    Would of thought that £2k will buy somthing pretty good with the way the market is at the moment. Have you thought about genuine ex BT or Post Office vans as they dont normaly have much mileage on them and sell quite cheap

    I have used the renault traffic and VX Vivaros for the past 6 years and haven't had one thing go wrong with them but they where all new and replaced after 2 years but i know that if you get one with a dodgy gearbox then its big money to fix. Was at the auction on Friday and a 52 plate vivaro sold for £1300 but had 147,000 miles on it. Remember you usually pay vat and the indemnity fee on top of the auction price.
