The second-generation van, which we feature in this issue, is a common sight on the roads, even though the Vivaro and Trafic have moved onto the next generation.
The vans were first introduced into the UK market in 2001 and went out of production in 2014, as the new model competes with the latest offerings from Ford, Mercedes and Volkswagen.
The trio were launched with a range of powerplants, including a 2.0-litre petrol engine and 1.9-, 2.0-, and 2.5-litre diesel engines.
These engines combined with a six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes have provided some additional technological challenges for the aftermarket.
Next month we’ll be looking at another commercial vehicle; the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter from 2006 onwards, so wherever you work in the aftermarket if you have insight to share, we would be delighted to hear from you. To get your advice included contact firstname.lastname@example.org
