Hi guys, when you need a bit more space than an Alhamb or Galaxy, what would you look at?

I will be keeping the Alhamb but need to look for something bigger too.

Are the vianos any good or is that a case of typical Mercedes rust bucket? Budget would be small.

Thank You.
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all. Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

On a small budget you'll probably by in the pre 2016 stuff which means they all rust :) Assuming you want a people carrier type van rather then a proper out-and-out van but they are all commercial vehicles so the rust proofing is minimal and the paint is thinner often without a lacquer so it doesn't take much to chip and then rust.

I'd go Ford Tourneo myself if only because Transit parts are abundant and cheap :)
