They suffer badly from the dreaded tinworm and nearly 7% disappear off our roads every year. Mine wasn't imported till 1999 so whilst UK cars were rotting over here for 10 years mine was leading a pampered life in Japan and is unwelded and rock solid underneath.

It most certainly is way faster. The trannie has two throttle positions. Off and flat out its as simple as that.

Ear muffs are a option when flat out at 98!

You get home in reasonable time as people tend to stay clear. I have no idea why ?

Must be the gerning look on the driver.........

It went through a sef-initiated full rebadging program Mark  :smoke:  I think I was actually the first person in the country to do it and have helped a couple of others through the process now. You need to take off the front bumper to change the grille ....

We had an 06 vw caravelle - t5 - they are without doubt the best van in the world - so car like.

However - they are twice the price of pretty much any other van of their size..........when moving stuff and using it as a mobile tool box.....let's face it they ain't worth double the money!!!

Only here once

Transits are weird like that, I know of a mixture of them locally all similar age yet as you say some rust free yet others rusted to the core!

I had a long line of astra vans, which Vauxhall discontinued couple years ago, I think their combo van is butt ugly and I don't much like any of the French offerings.  So other than the caddy theirs not anything else.

 

So I took the plunge and bought the top of the range 2.0l caddy highline ! Bloody expensive as you say though !
