Ford Transit voted most reliable van of 2013

Despite fierce competition, Ford took pole position in the FN50 van reliability survey for both model and manufacturer for the second consecutive year.

The survey asks FN50 companies to rank their best-performing vehicles for reliability based on breakdowns and warranty claims. And in a table that witnessed very few changes from last year, the Transit has retained its place as most reliable van, while Ford also continued as the most reliable van manufacturer on FN50 fleets.

Although Ford’s smaller van, the Transit Connect, took second place last year, in 2013 it is demoted to third by the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, which has been ranked a place higher than in 2012.

Phil Hollins, Ford UK fleet director, said: “Ford is very proud to retain the top spots of most reliable van and overall most reliable van manufacturer in the FN50 survey.

“The results are testament to the hard work of our design and engineering teams based at Dunton in the UK, who continue to deliver class-leading products of the upmost quality.”

Because of this great success, Ford has a huge challenge ahead of it. This year Ford’s revised Transit range launched the Transit Custom, Transit Connect, and these will be joined by the two-tonne Transit and compact Transit Courier over the next few months. However, Ford’s challenge is to make sure these new additions are reliable from day one if it hopes to repeat its success in the survey in 2014.
