Transit v Iveco Daily

Recommended Posts

I have read various reviews of Iveco daily's. I run Transits with the smileys face's on them and they take the abuse, but, I need newer vehicles (2nd hand) as the transit's are looking very @ikey, Except all our local caravan dwellers are the only people in brand new vehicles.

 

So plus's and minus's please and what should I look out for if buying either of these vehicles, and is it worth getting the 35c12 or the 35c15. I don't have facilities for operators license facilities either (Shame) so I am limited.

 

Thank you all

I've never run an Iveco, but have read some real horror stories about what they cost when they go wrong, and how dealers are about the only source of parts for them.

 

I've had nothing but Transits for years, both 2 and 4 wheel drive, and never had any bother with any of them really that's amounted to more than a few quid. Plus they're easy to fix yourself and there are loads of aftermarket parts if you don't want to pay Fraud's prices for bits.

 

It's only my opinion, and it's heavily biased - but I'd spend the money on a decent Transit meself! There's probably a good reason why there are still so many old ones knocking about......

Nonsense. Never had any trouble with sourcing Iveco parts, yes some things will be more expensive, but thats usually because they are heavier duty.

Iveco Daily wins hands down IMO. Initially a bit more expensive but there are a few excellent deal to be had if looking in the right place.
