A poll conducted among leasing companies has revealed Ford to be the most reliable van manufacturer in Britain.
The Fleet News magazine survey, which questioned users of more than one million vehicles, revealed that Ford vans are the least likely to suffer breakdowns.
In addition to this, Ford’s Transit van was named the single most reliable van make, the third year in a row it has taken this title.
Steve Kimber, Ford of Britain’s commercial vehicle director, expressed delight at the manufacturer’s victory and said it was indicative of the quality of its range.
He said: “Ford models have led the commercial vehicle market for 44 years.
“Their reliability record is of paramount importance.”
This comes a month after the US carmaker was named as Van Manufacturer of the Year at the Fleet Van Awards – a title it also won in 2008 – in recognition of the affordability and efficiency of its vehicles.
