Early days to give a true honest assessment however so far the van has seemed to be economic to run which was a consideration. Other feedback is too early to say for sure.
Excellent. Large amount of space. Great build quality and reliability.
I just love it, its lovely to drive, very comfortable and good on fuel compared to my last van. Overall it got everything I need and more.
Even better than I thought it would be, drives like a nice car and has a huge amount of space in the back.
Early days yet however the van is comfortable and quiet, well kitted out and seems good on fuel.
It is easy to drive and comfortable, it suits my needs well
Its a great vehicle to handle - smooth
Best van there is.
Excellent looking and reliable van.
Brilliant van. Best I've ever driven, I would rather drive it than my BMW 540 m sport!
Great, practical, comfortable, good value car.
Easy to drive, plenty of space, comfortable, looks good, especially in magnetic grey. VERY PLEASED!
The best van I have driven by a long way. So many extra touches that show lots of thought into the drivers needs.
It's like driving a car. The gadgets are great and the van is comfortable. Space in the back seems to be never ending.
ONE OF THE BEST VANS I HAVE DRIVEN!
Our engineers love this van!
Great. Small problem was inside the van, the floor was very slippy. I put a sheet of ply on the floor and that sorted the problem.
Its as good as a car to drive - Its my new baby now.
I had done extensive research, there is a reason why the most popular van in Britain remains so.
Although early days it seems that it the vehicle that is suited to my business needs.
Had one before and liked it so I got another one.
Meets all requirements but on a personal note lack of driver consul storage space.
Really impressed with the auto.
Practically cut my fuel bill in half and I still have the space I need to do my job.
This van drives like a car; enough room for all my tools and looks smart.
Nice looking van. Well presented, makes my business look professional.
5 star only cause I cannot give the vehicle a 6 star!
Very very good all round van.
I can't fault it, great van.
A comfortable van to drive. Performance is very good.
Can't fault the van it's excellent.
Fabulous van, with all the bells and whistles of a high-end car.
I've only ever used Transits. Looked at the alternatives but the new model has everything I wanted from a van.
Can't fault it. Economical, colour and spec is first class.
Couldn't believe the spec on it. It's a joy to go to work in.
Very good van.
A first class vehicle.
My other vehicles are Ford and the brand offers excellent value.
Fits in with what my business needs are.
Good spec van, drives nicely other than a bit of torque steer and the gear box isn't that smooth, but that could be because its new.
Very good van for my needs.
Van is good but still no handbook provided to allow driver to fully understand all vehicle operations.
Already owned one which I have now sold and its the same van but with a new colour.
Good although paint chips very easily.
Like driving a car, could of done with side door on drivers side as well but I did not want to wait 6 weeks for factory build. The spec on the custom is great with dab radio & Bluetooth, alloys and parking sensors. It looks good while being a very practical van.
Very smart looking van. Very car like and enjoyable to drive. Build quality feels solid with a genourous load space.
It's a nice van. I am happy with it.
Very pleased. Very pleasant to drive.
The perfect tool for the job our engineers require.
Very pleased, suprised how smooth it is. Easy to drive.
An excellent vehicle for my purposes
Lovely van. More like a good quality car up front. With the practical use as a van too.
Great van. Thought of everything but low mpg.
Good quality vehicle.
So far....I love it!
Being a mercedes van driver for the past 20 years, I was delighted with the build quality and extras as standard on the Transit. The load space is excellent and having 4 load lights in the back make it brighter and easier to work with especially in winter.Sitting higher up is better and comfort more than adequate.
I'm enjoying all the benefits of my new van. Space reliability & professionalism.
I'm enjoying all the benefits of my new van. Space reliability & professionalism.
Absolutely perfect. Great size, lovely colour, interior is comfortable and feels like a car. Very good on fuel and feels like an all round solid van, couldn't be happier.
Exellent Van, looks good drives good, would recommend it over other vans I have tested.
I am very happy with the vehicle, it is a pleasure to drive.
Lovely to drive. Comfortable with loads if room. Highly recommend anyone to get one.
Lovely to drive, quick and stylish. Only con is the accelerator is very sensitive but I will get used to it.
I am very pleased indeed with my new van. It meets all my requirements and more.
I've always had Transits and love them.
Great van. Cheap to run with great extras.
Like driving a big high spec car. Only downside, I was under the impression that it came plylined, it didn't.
Lovely new van
It's very nice.
Absolutely would recommend this to anyone. Excellent van throughout.
Not as amazing as everyone makes out, but does the job and is hardly slumming it :-)
Absolutely fantastic, drives like a car loads of standard features, just a nice place to be when driving.
Love it, step up in size for me, can get everything in the back now but have not lost a comfortable drive
Having not had the vehicle for long it is difficult to rate it properly, however we are pleased with its overall performance to date.
Very good van its like driving a car its that easy.
Very comfy well specced vehicle.
Love the comfort and features. Quite bouncy when travelling without much stuff on board. Receive lots of comments about how good it looks.
Great van. Drives just like a car.
This is going to be good for what I want it for.
holds the road well. comfortable driving position. not sure about fuel economy as not had it long enough.
To be honest I've not actually driven it more than 2 miles since I've had it. So its hard to say, but it looks great!
Great all round van the only bad point is the mpg isn't as good as it says!!
Love it so far. One downside is the slippery floor! I had to buy rubber matting as everything was moving about!
Just the ticket. Smart, cheap and loaded with extras.
Very nice van, just like driving a car and enough space in the back for my needs.
Beautiful and a pleasure to drive.
I love these new Ford Transit Custom's, this is my second one. It's great, has loads of toys on them. Now I can see why everyone wants one.
Great drive, very practical and looks good. Overall it's a great van.
Love it, definitely made the right choice.
Good quality van and ideal for my business and the miles I do.
Looks good, great on fuel.
Excellent van. Very comfortable and spacious. Handles like a car and has plenty of power for a commercial vehicle. Seems to have pretty good fuel economy but that will depend on how its driven. Well made with lots of nice features front and rear parking sensors, heated driver seat, air conditioning etc. Overall I'm very pleased with my van and the excellent service provided by the Vanarama Team!
An excellent vehicle which is great to drive, just like driving a car with all the bells whistles you need. Great load space. Fuel consumption seems very good but only had the vehicle for less than two weeks so hard to give a comprehensive review of miles per gallon and reliability. So far I'm extremely happy.
I was very pleased with my van.
Excellent van. Good load space. Good pull and drives like a car. Highly recommended.
What a great van, ideal for my needs as a gas fitter.
Very happy with it, it fits my style of work and leisure.
Perfect for the job that I do.
Good van, loads of extras as standard.
Love it. Looks great, drives great. The spec is quality, it's like driving a luxury car!
Perfect for my business.
Superb vehicle. Would rather drive this van instead of a car.
Exactly what I needed in quick time.
Superb looking with great interior comfort.
As I've only had the van a couple of weeks I can't really comment on reliability. Fuel consumption isn't brilliant but it's not too bad.
Good vehicle, thirsty for fuel but worth it.
This is my second Ford Transit Custom. Need I say more??
Great van for any business.
The guys are very pleased with our choice for them.
Well built, nice van, very comfy and nice to drive.
Over the moon with it, it's a great van.
Great van, far superior to my old Nissan Primastar.
Great van, ideal for my job.
Very pleased, it came with all the gadgets. Cant fault it.
Nice all round van. Powerful where needed.
Not a bad van.
Getting used to driving this much bigger van than my last van. The Ford Transit Custom is very car like in the cabin, and well equipped. It has predictable and smooth handling, and will give a decent boost of power if required. So far, so good! But time will tell if my next van will be another Transit!
Excellent, plenty of room after driving a Berlingo for the last 12 years!
I love the look of the van and being a woman this was important to me.
Excellent, like driving a car, could do with a factory reversing camera though.
Looks great, does everything that a Ford Transit Custom should do with plenty of extras including front and rear parking sensors which really come in handy. It's the best van I have had in my twenty years of running commercial vehicles, cannot fault the Transit Custom.
Very good van, would recommend it.
A very comfortable van. Quiet, quick with plenty of extras.
The van is perfect for my working needs, the load area is surprising large.
Only had it 2 weeks but it is an excellent van. You tend to get a lot more spec from Ford for the money paid.
Really pleased with the van. Only drawback at the moment is that the flooring is really slippy, and requires a non slip surface adding.
Love it, perfect, thanks.
Very happy. Looks good, well thought out cab and seems to be good on fuel.
Only had it a week but very nice so far.
Very happy. Has all the additional electronics which makes for a great work vehicle.
So far so good.
Best van I've driven.
Great van. Good spec for a base model. Heated seats were a bonus. Sat-Nav doesn't work but Ford are fixing that. Other than that can't knock it.
Great van. I really like the performance and great value considering all the extra's included too. The only downside is the slippy plastic material used to board the loading area floor. We incurred an additional expense re-covering this area in timber instead.
The Transit pulls well once moving but suffers from turbo lag to the point of stalling on islands. One more dislike is the split windows in damp mornings you drop windows but doesn't clear front section to see mirrors!!!
Very comfortable van to drive and looks great.
Great van, I've sold my BMW as I'm that impressed with the van I use it for work and leisure.
Great van, well equipped and best looking on the market.
It's exactly what I was looking for.
Great van, looks great overall.
Exceeded my expectations.
What a van Ford have made, first class, arrive in comfort for a full days work and a comfortable drive back home, superb.
I am very pleased with my van it was just as good as I thought it would be drives like a car with the space of a van.
The van is great but not as much useful storage in the cab as my previous 2012 Transit.
Nice van, plenty of room, drives great.
The van is exactly what I require for the nature of my work.
Great van, bit heavy on fuel. Comfy and looks the part!
I'm still getting to know the van but my first impressions are good, a big improvement on my old Transit. It is far more economical than the old van and the new van makes a better impression on customers.
Good looking van, enough space in the back and comfortable to drive.
Great vehicle overall, very practical as you would expect from Ford Transit. It lacks a couple of extras such as USB socket and air con. Also the wipe clean floor in the rear is great until you load up and it's like an ice rink in the back with loads sliding around all over the place.
I love it.
Fantastic van, drives like a car great on fuel.
Great van, looks good and drives well.
Its a really good van and very versitile. I have found it is somewhat under powered even when carrying a small amount of weight.
Good working van.
Great drive & superb spec. Best looking van on the road.
The Transit Custom is a cracking looking van and is great to drive but I'm a bit disappointed in the fuel economy (currently 31mpg). I hope this increases as the mileage increases as I'm self employed and use the van every day for work. I thought a modern Diesel engine would have better fuel economy but that is my only minor complaint.
So far, so good.
Only had the van a couple of weeks but is exactly what I required, goes really well, as comfortable as my car and also as well kitted out. I love it.
Great van all round and looks sharp on the road.
Great van. Everyone who sees it loves it. It's great for work and I have already been on family trip with it and it's better than a car. Loads of space and loads of gadgets, I couldn't ask for more.
Really great van and lovely to drive.
So far, so good.
Car is amazing!!!
Lovely van no problems
Top spec, has more accessories than I expected.
Having taken a while to decide on a van I opted for the Custom LTD, on the whole I'm very pleased with my choice. Superbly built and very comfortable to drive the custom is the ideal van for my growing business. Being a window cleaner I opted for the 290 version to handle the 600kg water filled tank. All the extras are excellent especially the heated seats! I opted for the LED lights in the cargo area, they are brilliant. One negative for me is the stiff suspension, makes for quite a bumpy ride in my opinion. I could understand it in the Sport version but wasn't expecting to feel every bit of the road. Having said this it's a fantastic van with some very nice features and compared to my old expert is on another level!
This is the first van I've owned having previously had pick ups and I've been very impressed. Lovely to drive, very comfortable and car like. The sensors front and back make life very easy when parking and the heated seats are a god send after a hard day grafting in the winter. We do a mix of short and long journeys and it's proved great for both. Only addition I'd like would be to go for a roof rack but the additional storage under the passenger seats, accessible from the back, means at least we can get 3 metre lengths in.
Great van to drive. All the mod cons of a new car and good value for money.
Very impressed, it's a joy to drive.
A great van with all the refinements of a high end car but with plenty of storage for paperwork in the well thought out cab. My van is no where near under full load weight wise but does however bounce around a bit on an uneven road. Overall a great van and I'm very pleased, I cant comment on reliability yet.
Exactly what I need.
I love everything about it, and it makes my business look so much more professional.
It doesn't feel like your driving a van, it's that smooth and comfortable.
Very happy with the level of equipment.
Extremely impressed, comfortable spacious and drives like a quality car!
I was driving a rented Vauxhall Vivaro Sportiv for a week immediately before taking delivery of the Transit Custom, and I found it more responsive to drive than the Ford, but in every other respect the Transit Custom beats it, on build quality, equipment, finish and economy. The doors have a nice solid thud when you close them too!
Everyone is extremely pleased with the new vehicles.
A great van that meets all my needs.
I love it, had a Transit Trend before this and this one is so much better.
It's like driving a car, it's perfect. It's got all the mod cons and can fit everything I need in the back.
Delighted with vehicle.
Looks great, drives great, has loads of great kit in it and plenty of space for all my tools etc. And being a Transit, I'm expecting it to be bulletproof.
Very impressed with van, comfortable, handles well and good quality. Not the best on fuel economy and could do with more storage spaces in the front but nether less very happy.
Too soon to rate properly, but I have given all 5* so far.
Excellent van, top spec, plenty of toys, all you could need and more for a van! Bad point is the load liner that comes with the van from ford is really slippy so everything moves about in Transit. Would benefit massively from a non slip floor covering or just ply lined floor.
Looks good and drives like a car.
Really nice van but I would go for the bigger engine next time.
Excellent all round vehicle. Superb fuel economy, and FINALLY a van that's comfortable.
Perfect for me as a joiner, plenty of room for everything I need once I racked out the inside. The L2 is definitely the way to go as the L1 is just a bit on the short side.
Everything it says on the packet.
Very nice van, heated screen is great cleared ice in under a minute.
Just one problem I've found is that when I fill up with diesel, it seems to leak out of nozzle cap.
Great van, ticks all the boxes.
Great van, lots of mod cons, drives like a car.
Very good van, although would be better if both sides had sliding doors.
Overall excellent, nice to drive for a large vehicle, looks smart, lots of extras, I would highly recommend and currently looking at getting another one.
I've had the van 3 months now and it drives and looks superb. Great around town and just cruises along the motorway.
Had the Van for just over a year now, looks great and drives beautifully. Front and rear sensors stopped working but took it into main dealers and fixed in couple of hours, no quibbles. No regrets at all, in fact my son is thinking of getting one after he borrowed it and wasn't keen to give it back!
I have had the van for 6 months now and it is a great investment. Having the long wheel base allows me to rack the van out and still have room to slide 8X4 sheets in the van still. The comfort in the cab is better than my car. The heated seats are lovely after a hard days graft. It's so nice to drive and I get about 600 miles to a full tank which I think is pretty good. Overall I am extremely happy with my new van.
Best van I have ever driven. Well manufactured, performance and comfort better than many modern cars.
Absolutely stunning van in every way.
Best van on the road by miles, Mercedes and Volkswagen are not as good as these new Transit Customs.
Very comfortable (for the driver) and responsive drive. Rear passengers a bit up-right and so uncomfortable on long journeys. Load space is excellent.
Excellent all round working vehicle. I would definitely purchase again and recommend to others.
I have had the van for 4 months, I use it everyday for my plastering and decorating company. It is by far the best vehicle I have ever had. It drives like a car, and has plenty of torque. There are too many great aspects to the van so I'll tell you the only 2 negative things I can see. The display stating how many miles left in the tank is well out (I drive it mostly lightly loaded) And the second is there is not adequate space for me to store my diary and other paperwork in the front. Otherwise it is absolutely superb.
It's the most practical car like van I have ever driven. From the DAB radio and hands free SYNC audio system to the flap in the bulk head allowing another meter for pipe or 3m lengths of whatever. It's a fantastic van.
It's like having another pair of hands.
Coming up for three years old now, still looks great and drives superbly. We use this vehicle daily and it has not let us down, a little juicy when fully loaded but acceptable. Most comfortable van to drive out there and smooth and quiet. We have the Limited version which is a great spec for the price. I would recommended this van to several of our customers who have all leased through Vanarama. Cab is very well spaced with Ac, heated seats and screen. I would definitely buy another Transit Custom. Our over all our experience with this vehicle is very good.
We have had our Transit Limited Edition for two years now and it has performed faultlessly, we mainly do motorway miles and it returns 35 mpg. We have covered now 75000 miles with no issues other that the keyed bonnet opener failed but was fixed quickly buy my local ford dealer. The heated seats are a godsend after a hard day on site and we use the cruise control more than we expected. Also the passenger seat can get a bit uncomfortable after a few hours.
Very comfortable to drive, very good capacity, looks good and a pleasure to go to work in.
It's a great little van, stylish and practical and handles very well.
I use it for transporting musical equipment and it's a great van.
The vehicle is the perfect work horse, whilst having all the creature comforts I've come to expect from a new luxury car. The parking sensors, retractable mirrors, comfort cooling, heated screen and heated seats make the exceptional ride through the day that much more enjoyable.
The Transit Custom is a very practical van and drives like an executive car.
Very good and capable van, looks and drives lovely, not as economical as I thought it would be, but that is a small price to pay for such a smart van.
Fantastic van. Not enough room in the middle seat when carrying two extra passengers, you have to reach across to control the heating temeprature, fan etc. Perhaps there's too much dash! They're the only problems I can think of though.
I love my new van. I play piano for a living with my band. We travel all over the place sometimes crazy long drives, it's great having the splitter part, in the past in my old people carrier if we braked hard everyone ducked just in case they got hit in the head with a snare drum. The splitter section is ply lined and feels secure, I am happy to leave the equipment with out to much worry. The band really like the van, it drives like a car and we can get where we want quickly and quite comfortably. My one and only criticism is that you can't recline any of the seats other than the drivers, which on a very long journey doesn't make sense, the only one who can lie down, can't. For my liking if the splitter section was 1 foot back and the seats reclined and the the two front passengers seats reclined then it would be absolutely perfect. Other than that, I am over the moon and Vanarama have been fantastic, helpful, quick and kind. Thanks Guys.
I love It! It could do with a few extra cubby holes in the cab, and I have fitted an after market led lighting kit in the back, but other than that it's great! Comfortable, stylish and it looks professional. I sat on the fence for about a year before finally taking the plunge and ordering a brand new van.... Should of done it years ago!
I've had my new Ford Transit a couple of months and fell in love with it straight away. I've noticed people in the street and going to work noticing it, also looks good when arriving on jobs as it definetly makes a good impression for you and your business. Vanarama were great all through process and very professional. I'm really really pleased with my Transit, haven't got a bad word to say, it's a pleasure driving to work. I've only ever had old vans and they cost a fortune to keep on road, wish I would have done it years ago but thanks to Vanarama for giving me another option.
Very good in all aspects except it needs servicing every 12 months and not every 24 as expected.
I'm a plumber and use my van daily, I've had the van for just over a year and it does everything I need it to do. For starters it gets me to work everyday, secondly the practicality of the van is amazing. I love the hatch in the back that you can lift up and place 3m lengths of copper tube in, also great for ladders and saves putting everything on a roof rack. The cab is so comfortable, it feels like I'm driving a car and the heated seats are a bonus too. Definitely going to be getting another Transit Custom in the future.
Best looking van on the market at the moment, I think other manufactures will struggle to beat it. Only issue is my limited does 29mpg and on a run with reset trip computer it hits 32 mpg which is awful but at least it's amazing in other ways.
There isn't a lot to dislike about the Custom, especially in the limited version with 125ps. It has plenty of power and it's economical. The limited version has all the toys you can get, in face most cars aren't as well equipped! Originally I was looking at the Volkswagen van but that just doesn't compare against the Ford Custom. All I can say is it's the best out there and I can't recommend it enough and all my customers love it too.
Comfortable and looks great, loads of compliments on how stylish it looks, well pleased.
Owners handbook is very poor.
I like the van it's very practical, nice to drive and good performance. I do a lot of local driving so can't really comment on long distance driving the only thing I find annoying is sometimes driving in the cold can cause the engine to cut out, but apart from that it's the perfect vehicle for my business of carpentry and joinery.
Great van, we can get long timbers under the seat and can get full sheets of plasterboard laying flat. The heated seats are amazing and the quality is right up there, so I'm very satisfied. Thank you to Vanarama for all your continued support.
After driving a T5 for 5 years I initially rented a Transit Custom which triggered my decision to get one. I was amazed about the van. I am a sales agent and the only reason I cannot drive a car is because I need a space however I do appreciate my comfort when I do miles. I never understood why van's cabin needed to look so boring, basic and feel plastic-y. The Ford Custom is like driving a car and does not look like a normal van's cabin. Everything has been thought with the driver experience in mind, for example, usb in the compartment above the steering wheels for your phone, sat nav, iPod... (No cables everywhere, by the way it would great to get 2 or 3 usb), the bottle of water holder, the coffee cup.... I drive the Limited so I also have the digital radio which is a great add on. The van does look very good and it will show your business in a great light. I have the long base , double cabin which is great for the space however although it is easy to park with the sensors, the van will fill a small space leaving very little room for cars each sides to open their doors without touching your doors. The metal paint is so great I am too scared somebody will scratch it so I usually end up parking far away in supermarket car park which I guess it is not a bad thing if you are like me and need exercise. I've only had the van since September so nothing to report regarding technical issues, so far so good. If you still not sure between a VW and a Ford I would suggest you try one and compare the inside and options as it will be the place you are going to sit everyday.
Love everything about this van it's like driving a car and looks great too, best decision I've made in a long time.
We have had our Transit Custom for 4 months now. It's in use daily carrying 600 litres of water (600kg) along with other heavy equipment. Despite the amount of weight carried it still drives like a car with plenty of power. With jobs close together we are constantly stop-starting and yet fuel consumption is very good. The vehicle has lots of extras including DAB radio and automatic wing mirrors, which come in very handy when driving down country lanes or narrow roads. The Bluetooth connectivity is instant and read out text alerts on the dash are very useful for busy work schedules. The van looks great now its all sign written and pulls work through all the time. To date we really cant fault it! We will definitely be sticking with Ford Transits in the future.
I am a self employed plasterer and this van ticks all the boxes for all my needs. Great for load capacity and the cab has many great features like heated seats and screens for those cold frosty mornings as well as air-con, dab radio and cruise control. If you don't believe me take one out for a test drive. You won't regret it.
The Transit Custom is fantastic value for money and has proved a brilliant addition to our fleet.
Really good van, runs like a car and I like the extra compartment in the back for extra length.
I've had the van 9 months transporting bathroom suites and I've had no problems. It's very good on fuel, saving a third on my fuel bill a month. I do most of my driving around town but on the motorway it drives better than any other van I have had before easy to handle and a better turning circle. I have highly recommended the transit custom and I have no complaints what so ever.
Superb, drives like a car. Great van, I will definitely be getting another one.
Had my van for almost 18 months now and I'm really please with it. Great looking van, practical and love the gadgets like the heated seats and the air con.
I have had the new Ford Transit Custom for around 6 months. I was very pleasantly surprised about how well equipped the van is. It's a very nice place to spend your time driving although I do have a few issues with it. The van is lovely to drive around town but the steering is far to light for the motorway. Although it's very low revving in 6th it still seems to use quite a lot of diesel, now averaging 28.3 mpg compared to the claimed 42 mpg. Overall though it's a great looking van with a lot of equipment and a very practical tools, but I don't think I would have another one.
I have had my van for 5 months now and I wonder how I managed before without it, I'm a carpenter and joiner and find the van very spacious inside for all my tools and the under passenger seat storage very useful for those extra long bits of wood etc. that would not normally fit inside without strapping on the roof. The cab is quite luxurious and just like being in a car, I love all the little storage facilities in the cab and the ride is comfortable on long journeys too. Economy is not great, could do with a turbo on it to improve economy and performance, reversing takes a bit of getting joust too as rear sensors can make you think that you're closer than you actually are but that comes with practice. Pulling out of junctions can be difficult at times as visibility isn't great out the side window, a little concerned as to how secure rear doors are when shut as it seems like there is quite a lot of movement. But all in all a great asset to any business and I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend Vanarama as the whole process of my van purchase was very smooth, they were most professional from my first enquiry to delivery.
Really nice van, very pleased with it, it's definitely as good as I could expect.
I have had this van for 2 years now and it has been fantastic. It's used every day for transporting my tools and materials. I used to have a Mercedes Vito, but the custom is better in every department. I have had many comments on its great dark blue metallic colour, which is a change from white. It came ply lined and I requested 2 side loading doors, which I find much more practical for me personally. I fitted a rack for fixings etc on both sides of van. Leaving 1250mm which enables me to slide in 8 x 4 sheets of ply ,plasterboard etc. The hatch under the passenger seat is great for 3m pipe so no need for pipe rack on roof . The cab is refined with lots of extras including heated seats, cruise control, electric fold-able wing mirrors, dab radio, blue-tooth, heated windscreen, passenger seat storage, electric windows, and many more. Outside it has smart alloy wheels , metallic paint, fold-able roof rack and colour coded bumpers. It's really smooth and quite quiet ride, this truly is a great van. I will be leasing another when this one ends, no question. A million miles from the old transit. I only travel about 7000 miles a year at the moment with lots of starting and stopping but it never lets me down.
This is the best van I have driven, it's quite a comfortable drive, packed with useful features. Very responsive engine and smooth ride, looks stunning and is more economical than previous transits.
I don't dread the 5 hours a day driving now that I have my new van, I love it.
I haven't driven it enough to form a proper opinion.
Everything I was looking for, highly recommend.
I have had my Transit for 3 months now and I am really pleased with the van, it has an amazing load space and is a joy to drive it has helped me expand my business by allowing me to carry more materials to site and I am really surprised at how economical it is. I would recommend the Transit Custom to everyone.
Nice van, I'm pleased with it but it can be heavy on fuel.
You wouldn't know you were driving a van, it's so comfortable. I've had many nice cars and this is up there with them so I'm glad I chose this van. Also the help I received in choosing my deal was excellent always willing to go extra mile with advice and helpful over the phone whenever I had a query, thank you.
Love this van. Economical, reliable, nippy and very comfortable. Heated seats and screen are such a luxury. Possibly too posh for a landscaper!
There are only two things I would change about this van. The heater controls are too far away from the driver and the air conditioning turns itself on if left in either the hottest or coldest setting when you start the ignition. I am being very picky here but to find a fault I feel I have to be. What a fantastic piece of engineering and a joy to drive.
Such a good van! I love everything about it. Practical stuff is top notch, but also the level of spec coming with the Transit Limited makes it just a joy to drive every time I use it.
Good comfortable van although electrics are sometimes unreliable.
We've had our van since June last year, we use it for everything, including fishing taking the folks out, but obviously manly work, I do push the fact that we got it from Vanarama even went to the supermarket the other day and kept some poor guy and his wife talking about it for 1/2 an hour (well he started it). The only one thing that can be a pain is hills sometimes if you don't wind it up or someone slow gets in the way it can be a bit gutless but if you use the gears a bit more it's not too bad.
Really nice van and suits our requirement.
Absolutely brilliant, even when I become rich I will have one of these, far better than its rivals. The only thing I will change for next time I order from Vanarama is a vehicle more power as I have several hills to go up and over. It is fantastic.
I use the van for my work as a dog walker, I have had the van since Sept 14th the only problem I have is that I have had problems with the doors both drivers and passenger doors not closing properly. Other than this I am delighted with the van , it is comfortable and economic, as I do a lot of localized driving.
I drive to and from work, I've had it 18 months and I like the front heated window & heated seats, although front heated window is unreliable. It helps me to have all tools on site and drives well on all types of journeys as it's very comfy and the economy is good, I just wish it had a Sat Nav.
A great van overall, it could do with a bit more torque and mpg. Although the comfort is amazing and just like a car.
Excellent van. Drives like a high end car and great on the autobahns!
This van has been great for our business. It looks good which has improved our image and offers us plenty of load space without being too big which is handy when working on domestic properties as it is easy to drive anywhere. I would recommend this van to anyone especially at such a reasonable price.
Comfortable van on short and long journeys, drives like a quality car, fits all my plumbing needs and inexpensive to run.
I have had the van for just about a year now (doing building/landscaping) and I have clocked 14000 miles in that time. It still looks like new and I still love driving it. I love the heated seats and the quick demist in this weather. I even leave my mec c class at home and take the van. I find that economy is very good compared to my old van I would say I save around £45 a week in dev, which adds up to £180 a month,so really it pays for itself. From a business point of view it looks good and makes us look more respectable to our clients. To sum up, fantastic van the best I ever had.
The lower than 5 star ratings is because I have not had the van long enough to know.
Lovely bit of kit, really good van.
Looks great and drives well. Lots of cockpit storage but nowhere to store anything other that 2ltr bottles, also not great on fuel compared to the 2.5 Vivaro sportive!
A great van for my business.
I love it.
Great looking van. Great spec. Great everything!!! Just needs a Sat Nav.
