I am thinking of buy a [color="#ff0010"]2008 FORD TRANSIT CONNECT T200 1.8TDCI 75PS[/color] are these any good it has only around 68.000 miles. I need a van as I travel all over Europe and just wanted to know if these vans are any good ? I do around 80.000 miles per year and need a good reliable van.
Your thoughts please

Overall I have heard good feedback on them.The 1.8 I think is without DPF so its good in that respect, though its a small power output for a van, so if your happy with the power, they can be a good buy.
As you can see by the lack of Transit section, where not overly familiar with it, but I am sure others will provide their feedback!

I have had some experience with Connects as i had one as a dog wagon about 4 years back.
Lovely little runner, economical, spacious and solid as a rock.
You have the nifty ability to fold the passenger seat flat to allow long loads and also it has a tray built into the back of the seat with cup holders and such (ideal for placing paperwork on etc)
Only a couple of little niggles i had with the one i drove, it had solid rear doors so suffered a bit or reversing damage (reversing sensors a good idea?), and the bumper corner pieces have a habit of shedding themselves.
Other than that, i reckon they're cracking little vans for couriers and small building companies/plumbers/travelling workmen.
Get the back fitted out with wood panels and storage racks and it becomes a right little workhorse.
