Can anyone recommend .....

I am looing to buy a new van (second hand) transit size SWB.
Could anyone recommend me a van that has a reliable engine/gear box
I have been told that the Mercedes Vito vans are good but prone to gear box problems .

It would be good to hear your views .
Thanks in advance

The RAC guys I've ridden with have heaped praise on the VW's they have, Transporters I presume, although they can come up a bit small. Also I know a few people who like their Transits, rust being a bigger bugbear than mechanicals providing they didn't already appear shot.

The Toyota Hi-ace is a lovely van to drive and tough as old boots. Just not as economical as it could be but you won't spend much on replacement parts.
