    Fiat - Ducato vans

    I am looking for people who have had first hand experiances with the new generation Ducato vans, they look like this:



    I am not interested in the older vans as its completely different, so just this shape. If you have had any experiance with them I want to know the normal stuff really:

    What the engines like and which one was it you drove?
    Whats the spec like?
    Driving Postion?
    Dealers any good?
    Any Problems?
    Would you buy one with your own money (if it was owned by your employer)


    Just any feed back would be great thanks

    I'm sure I replied to this........

    Is there a reason you've not chossen the Citroen or Peugeot versions?

    I've had to deliver some of the Citroen versions and it's not a bad drive, plenty of seat adjustments to get comfortable

    a few people in work have 1 and in reverse with a heavy load the clutch slips
    the windows do not go all the way down in the front
    handbrake takes a bit of getting used to on the right
