Recommendations for a commercial van


Recommended Posts

Would appreciate recommendations on models that are reliable and have reasonable service costs.

 

Looking at those that are 7 years old or more or even COE renewal type. Any particular models to check out?

Not sure if the kangos are ok or I should stick to Japanese brands.

 

Thanks.

dun need to think, toyota hi-ace  [thumbsup]

 

nissan ur-van use to be good, but after merge , the new nissan lite-van is using france engine.

the big ur-van (i still not sure)

 

if buying a small used van, lite-ace is the most reliable around.

 

dun touch those altas kangoo. belingo, it will burn a HOLE in your company burget (no joke)

For vans, think better stick to japanese or korean brands. My Hyundai H100 van still going strong after 17 years. Very reliable workhorse. Thinking of changing to Toyota Hiace or Nissan Urvan as my Hyundai van COE expires early next year

It's for workers to deliver goods and run errands.

 

Not too many Hyundai vans listed on sgcarmart though.

 

Gotto watch the diesel tax too. Quite a killer after the tenth year. Ouch.

i think u mistaken the tax for diesel car, and diesel commerical van.??

 

com van after 10 years , the tax is not the problem,

its the inspection.

 

every 6 months once. so imagine if u got a fleet of those, basically is inspection non stop around the year  [crazy]

A diesel car is treated differently from a commercial diesel van. The road tax is slightly higher after 10 yrs, maybe $400+ thereabouts.

 

It's the 6 monthly inspections that is ridiculous.

To quote from a wise old mcf bro from some time back:

 

Got vteck kui vteck!

Got turbo kui turbo!
