    I've worked from primastar and vivaro and the traffic and there all fantastic to work out off but if the choice was mine id feel I'm missing out if I didn't get a transit , running costs are about the same but I think the transit is a bit better to work from and better desighned

    When I was looking for another used van most transits I looked at were scabby rust buckets.

    Transits rust, but vivaros, traffics ect can have huge repair bills.

    Google watchdog for vivaros and you will see the major problem they have with injectors seizing in the head which in really bad cases can lead to needing a new engine

    back when i was a mechanic a good way to get those seized injectors out was to weld a slide hammer directly to the injector itself. this wasnt in the rule book but it worked!
