Transit custom or vivaro?
« on: August 28, 2016, 12:45:29 pm »
Some great deals on the Vauxhall, pre reg 16 plate 12000 plus vat about 3.5k cheaper than the custom and made in the uk too. Anybody use one and anything to look out for.
Thanks. Tony

Blimey then have plummeted in price if that's right.

My vote is still the custom though.

Worth looking at the cirteon dispatch 2.0hdi. There always seem to be good deals on them if you look.

My brother shopped around for a Citroen dispatch and got a 2.0 ltr lwb for £15,000. I thought that was pretty good

Good price.
Motorsource are doing the Euro6 Transit Custom Limited 270 L1 130ps for £16295 + vat (new)which sounds quite pricey compared to that.

They're in a different van class

Vivarro is more comparable to the 'normal' transit (pure work vehicles) if you're going to compare prices, the custom is more comparable to a transporter (work/reacreational)

The viarro front end has a face that only a mother would love & the interior is cheap looking

Custom is better looking and a better drive but I'd do a bit of reading on DPF's before you buy either just to see which would be best for you (Ford DPF has a horrible reputation, vauxhalls is quite good)

Also have a look at the specs for payloads etc...

I love Fords. I have a mk7 transit and love driving it. Had issues at 2 years old though. Had a custom for 2 months. Drives like a car. Seats arnt as good as Transit. Not that good on fuel to say they are smaller.
If you can afford it, go VW. You get what you pay for. I think Renault look good. No idea what they are like

Yep, helped him protecktakote it over the weekend
He's gone for the LWB Sportive, looks like a decent workhorse

Its a nice drive, looks wise its not my cuppa tea though...
He had no problems with the old vivarro though and so stuck with the same, cant argue with the logic!

I've gone from a mark 6 to a custom and done less than 1500miles and Wednesday will be the second time I go back to Ford...who's the plonker?? :-[ :-[

Which Custom did you go for? Seats are crap in the base and trend...

VW used to be the mutts nutts, only problem is they've barely changed andything in 10years, starting to look dated in & out imo

Funny you should say that, I'm looking at a two year old transporter tomorrow.

Personally, I don't think I'll ever touch a VW ever again. Our family  must have owned five at least, every single one broke down including my sons Golf GTI - water pump at 16,000 miles. Utter crap the lot of them.

Gearbox is a pretty major thing to go. I would not call a van good that I had only done 11k in and already had to replace gearbox.
