    Question Are Iveco Vans Really Sh!t?

    I'm having trouble finding the Transit minibus at the price I want (they keep on bunging on VAT)

    But lots of Iveco vans about. I was warned off Iveco vans last year, but are they really so bad ?

    Cheers

    My experience-yes. Lots of issues with the one's I had (not owned, but loaned by our then sponsor) from engine anmd electrical problems through to poor build quality issues.

    I don't know much about them.

    I thought I was going to learn about vans a couple of years ago, when I rang a mate, and asked if he wanted to come in on my new venture, setting up one of those "man with a van" businesses.They'll do removals, deliveries, taking away waste for you, that kind of stuff, I think ...

    But he thought I had said, I wanted to set up a "man with a man" business. It was quite a sticky situation, but I managed to extract myself with everyone's honour in tact

    c'mon yozza. usual rules-you get what you pay for. And if you're using something as a foundation it pays to get the 'best' start you can.

    Thanks all, I think I'll stay away



    I was just checking as Ford have a hand in things and they don't usually produce crap.

    Ivecos are to commercials what Chinese motorbikes are to MotoGp.

    Had one for a few days last year. It didn't seem awful, but the throttle had no "back pressure" - you couldn't rest your foot on it as with a normal type. Very hard on the ankles. Most of the time it was foot flat to the floor anyway, but if you managed to get up to a speed it wasn't fun. And the "cruise control" affair was stupid - you set it at a given speed, and when you went faster than that a light came on

    Summary: OK as a short term rental, wouldn't wanna live with one.

    i use a 2001 banana engined LDV as a minibus. it's cheap, cheerful. slow, noisy, a bit juicy (27mpg), but in 18 months i've spent 200 on it (kingpins, whod've thought eh!).
    the later 6 speed iveco is a better (bigger) vehicle, the earlier 5 speed were the choice of window lickers inc. high mileage but usually well maintained and imo the right size for bike & motorhome, and come with a ramp
    merc sprinter, da biz! but mega money for a clapped out one and they rust like an ldv.
