EGR valve went in VW just as warranty was about to expire. I kept a box of headlight bulbs in glove box as the daytime driving bulbs kept blowing.

Yes your rhigt ther m8 but you save that 250 a month for 20 years it nearly 60 grand
That doesn’t make sense, in 20 years how much would you have spent on buying second hand vans and maintaining them?
so it’s not 60 grand wasted because you would have spent a percentage of that anyway.
plus what about days lost when the old van breaks down? I had a gearbox go on a vivaro which was gone for over a week
Starter motor went, gone for 3 days
We’ve got a transit connect that’s always f**k**g up, new vans are the way forward

I could understand leasing if you've 5 vans but 1, can't see the point, but what ever works for you, you do have zero liability I guess, which I Can see the appeal.

That's my attitude with it. I used to have old vans so I can relate to the above, your just bringing hasstle on yourself. I recall an old transit I had about 10 years old, it was pot luck wether it would turn over on a cold morning, looking back, I'd think how can you run a business like that.

I wouldn’t even change a flat tyre on my van now. Got full AA cover through my bank. I’ve used it once. They came out within 30 minutes while I tidied up.
