THERE are several good reasons why Ford has topped the UK van sales charts since the beginning of time – and one of these is that Ford vans are pretty reliable vehicles.
The survey ranked vans on actual breakdowns and warranty claims
This fact has been brought home this week as, for the second consecutive year, Ford has been named the most reliable manufacturer and the Transit has been voted the most reliable van.
The praise has come from the country’s 50 top van leasing firms which voted an annual survey of van reliability.
In the survey, companies themselves rank the best performing vehicles for van reliability based on actual breakdowns and warranty claims. It is the largest study of its kind in the UK with those responding to the survey representing a combined fleet size of 170,000 light commercial vehicles.
Phil Hollins, Ford UK fleet director said: “Ford has been at the top of the UK commercial vehicle market for over 47 years and is very proud to retain these important honours.
“The company’s strong results from this comprehensive study are testament to the hard work of our design and engineering teams based at Dunton in the UK, which continue to deliver class-leading products of the highest quality.”
