    Having to change my van due to mine being written off (as per my previous posts)...

    Friend of mine has offered me his 07 transit with 73k on the clock for a very good price indeed!

    Going to have a look at it some time soon, anyone know what to look for or if they have weaknesses?

    He'll be dead honest with me anyway, but just wondered what everyone thinks of them??

    It's the SWB low roof (think it's the T280, not sure)...

    Transits are good vans... But transits seem to rust much more then other vans... this isnt true but thats what i reckon.

    Overall their good vans and ford parts are much cheaper compared to other companys out their

    This one isn't a connect, it's a full size transit.

    Just wondered if they have any problems with the tdci engine or turbo or anything?

    All vans lmao :p I dont know why but transits seem to rust very quickly....

    But transit connect is a much more smaller version comapred to the original transit.

    Transits are very good vans but watch out when buying second hand... because most transits out their have been battered lol

    Tranny vans are brilliant. Ford used to suffer with rust problems but not for a decade now
