I think youíll be surprised at just how good they actually are, they drive like a car, they go like the clappers & have you ever seen a rusty one?

Itís getting collected at 7 am tomorrow Andy, so needs done regardless. The personnel carrier at work is the Nissan NV300, which used to be called the Primastar, and itís the same van. I have had it a couple of times returning from a feeder to Dover, this on is the twin turbo 136 hp version and does 40+ mpg. The van Iím looking at is the 125hp version. It still has the remaining manufacturerís warranty until 31/1/21; so subject to the test drive I should be ok as itís covered for another year.

Same here, I donít normally surface on a weekend until about 10; but as usual the son has an activity with air cadets that means I have to take him,as the wife doesnít know how to get there. This means that by the time next weekend arrives, I will not have had a full weekend off for 5 weeks. I worked 1 day last weekend, and the weekend before and two days the weekend before that. Next weekend I am at a funeral on Saturday and have to get up to take the daughter to an event on Sunday. No peace whatsoever.

Morning all. another lie in for me again. Flamin' raining again, is it ever going to stop? I'm dying to get in the garden as the moss has taken over my lawns


Looks like shopping day will have to be tomorrow, I'm not going out in this weather & my missus is in bed with a rotten cold, There's no cereal, no bacon or black pudding, just egg on toast for brekkie.

Youíre having a rough time of it just now Bob, one cold after another. Maybe you need to drink a bit more malt. Purely for medicinal purposes of course. Look after yourself and get better quick.

Good morning Bob, a day in bed won't do you any harm and before you know it, you'll be up and about. You have an iron constitution and nothing keeps you down for too long.

I hope it all works out for you Richard if you decide to go ahead with the Trafic. In Auto Trader it scores 5/5 in reliability and they said.......

"It comes with a pretty standard three-year, 100,000-mile warranty but the servicing intervals are a well-spread 25,000-miles or two years, which suggests Renault has built up plenty of confidence in the Traficís durability."
