The Ford Transit is the most reliable commercial vehicle in the UK.
The Ford Transit is the most reliable commercial vehicle in the UK, according to the Fleet News 50 Survey. As such – based on the performance of one-hundred and sixty thousand vehicles operated by large contract hire and leasing companies - the Transit climbed from the fourth most reliable last time, to first. The Transit Connect retained second ahead of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. Furthermore, in the manufacturer reliability table, Ford climbed from second to first ahead of Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen who took silver and bronze.Mark Ovenden, Managing Director at Ford of Britain, said: “Ford is extremely proud that the Ford Transit and Ford Transit Connect have taken the top two spots in this reliability survey which is based on hard facts from our fleet customers. This is a tribute to the passion and dedication of our designers and engineers at Dunton who make quality the highest priority, and which has kept Ford at the top of the UK commercial vehicle market for over forty-six years.” Stephen Briers, Editor of Fleet News, added: “Van reliability is arguably more important than car reliability. A van driver can’t work from home if he or she needs to deliver vital equipment or provide a necessary service. Ford’s commitment to ensuring the Transit and Transit Connect perform well in the key area of reliability should help strengthen its position as the biggest manufacturer in the UK van market.”
