Leaves transits in the dark ages

After having transits for nearly 30 years I gave up on them due to continuifaults and Rust.
The trafic wasn't my first choice but the deal I got was a steal so I took the plunge.
A lwb trafic sport crewca with the 120 twin turbo and manual gearbox in oyster grey.
The van had a knock which was noticed on hand over and was fixed the same day with 4 new shock absorbers replaced even though only 1 was faulty.
Now admittedly I dont carry much weight as the van is for private use and carries my pack of Huskies and it hasn't covered a big mileage at just 37000 in 4 years but it has been completely Faultless and is an absolute pleasure to drive even on our regular long trips to our house in France.
But best of all NO RUST my transits all had rust at 4 years this van is completely mark free.
Im so impressed with it ive just ordered a trafic sport lwb crewvan 170 edc with every option box ticked as our next Dog van, its a lot to spend on a van but I need it for my dogs and if I've got to drive a van I'm having the best I can get and the trafic fits that bill perfectly.
