NV200 known problems

Im starting up a new business and I'm looking at the new NV200. I have a few Ford Transits used in the area but Ive heard bad things about them. Is there any known problems with these vans yet? My dealer is offering a life time unlimited time/unlimited miles warranty on the drive train.

I would read the fine print. Here's one example. Fleet and commercial vehicles are not covered!

Phil is right...read the fine print on that specific warranty. Don't take the dealer's word unless it's in writing.

Mmm known faults let me think. I have a few things to add here, not really faults just annoyances that I gathered in various places before I ordered mine.

  • people moan about the location and shape of the electric window switch (it attacks some peoples knee while driving!) it hasn't bothered me.
  • when driving on a gusty/windy day the van is pushed around a bit, I have experienced this I assume its due to the lightness and the gap between wheel and wheel arch.
  • lower front bumper has no protection grill for radiator, I fell for this one and has a 10mm stone puncture my rad. *not warranty, due to accident damage*
  • 58 mpg is not realistic (real world seems much lower) but that's the general consensus of all new cars and vans.
Overall its a sweet little van with generous capacity, my friends call it the tardis due to what it can hold!

My trade friends who all drive VW transporters (£20-25k plus) love the NV and are shocked to find out how cheap they are.

Just my 2 pence worth.

Just thought of another, my business is on the road and the Bluetooth was next to useless. If my customers cannot hear me while I am driving leads to many problems.

After 2 new microphones and a new head unit at Nissan main dealer Nissan UK agreed to pay towards a new parrot kit.

My minor annoyances:
- faulty brake light switch (this leads to ABS and anti slip disabling, both warning light come on). Dealer replaced it, but I adjusted it myself afterwards (5 minute job).
- windshield washer freezing (I know, I know, it's -20C here in the winter, but still). Here's the faulty part:


All in all, pretty happy with it. I do close to 1000kms/week, so I'll post any reliability issues if they come up.

@Mudflap:

Is the Parrot bluetooth kit any good/improvement ?
What model did you install ?

Thanks.

Hi GSM, I replaced the head unit to a Pioneer head unit with parrot handsfree module built in and its brilliant.

See my ice post for details.
