What do you think of a used Renault Kangoo Van?

My son needs a vehicle to drive to and from work, and occasional use as an overnight bed. He prefers Volkswagen or Ford, we've seen a £3595 2014 Renault Kangoo Van 1.5 with 82,000 miles. Is it a reasonable buy?

Answered by Dan Powell
It’s a fair price for a 2014 Renault Kangoo, as they usually command £4500+ for this age and mileage. If he wants a Ford then the alternative would be the Transit Connect, which is a better van, but you son’s budget would probably only stretch to a 2012 van with high mileage. It would be a similar story for a Volkswagen Caddy.

For £3595, I’d be tempted to go with the Kangoo so long as it’s in a sound condition and has a full history. For our round-up of the top 10 vans for under £5000, see: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-top-10s/top-10-small-use...0
