    Citroen dispatch ??

    French is cheap on parts.

    Make sure you get a hdi turbo engine as there best for reliability and a turbo will use Less fuel.

    The only problem with the ford transits is that if you get one with a tdci engine... Then there is a lot of expensive parts that go wrong and go wrong early on.

    This is due mainly to them using a fuel system made by Americans (Delphi) instead of stick with there good old Bosch.

    If you get a transit tdci then expect the fuel injectors, fuel pump, various sensors, dmf, fuel line and turbo pipes to fail regularly ( I know this because its the same engine in my mondeo :( and I am a qualified mechanic, just not practicing as money is pants)
