    Avoid the 55-56 range. Gearbox issues galore.

    If your on about the vivaros didn't they have the same gear box in the cars, that's why they had gearbox issues?

    yeah transporters are nice but pricey vitos seem ok heard they are thirsty and vivaros Gearbox issues, Why cant they just make a good workhorse van like the old days, I truly believe the money is in the parts for these companies

    ive a 55 plate primastar ( same as traffic vivaro), no gearbox issues yet anyway, its a great van, change the gearbox oil when you change the engine oil and youll be fine and don't thrash em, ive an 07 primastar as well if you can afford it go for an 07 plate onwards with the 115 bhp engine as the gearbox issue was sorted in them , im buying a new one of em next year, great vans

    Pre 2005 vitos rust like like hell
    Transporters have water pump problems water gets into the engine which can be expensive. Not sure about the new engines they have put in them 2 LTwin turbos, but pricey!
    I like the toyota hiace they are good reliable work horses little bit more thirsty tho I think than other models, but saying that I want a new sport vito lol.
    I like the Hyundi I load but heard there only good for 70k then elec probs n turbos go.
    Don't like French full stop lol
