What do the experts think ?

Postby remush » Wed Apr 15, 2015 12:02 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking into the following van : http://www.carsales.com.au/private/deta ... 269/?Cr=24

I don't know anything about cars, and am a bit nervous about buying this one, as I've heard ford transits can be a bad investoment.

If anyone know is if the 2000 ford transit VH Long Wheelbase van is a safe purchase or if I should avoid, I'd appreciate some feed backup.

Thanks :)

I wouldn't give more than aus$3000.00 for that or £1500 -£1600 here in the uk. Is that what the market value is in Australia, seems way overpriced!!

Everything in AU is very expensive.

Its called "The AUSTRALIA Tax" here.

I have no choice but to pay these prices.

I don't know if I would be better off importing something from the UK ?
