Which brand / make?

DISCLAIMER: European boy here!

Hi guys!

I’m currently looking for a van. I’ve been checking multiple brands and models, such as:

  • VW Crafter
  • Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
  • Fiat Ducato
  • Renault Master
  • Ford Transit

The VW Crafter is quite expensive for me, so recently I’ve also been looking at the Fiat Ducato and Renault Master. I’ve heard people say they’re reliable and don’t cost much to keep running over time. Also, lots of RVs have a Fiat engine, which must mean they’re pretty long lasting (?).

The two things that matter the most to me are reliability (something robust that doesn’t break down every two days) and low maintenance costs. I don’t care that much about gadgets and pretty interiors.

What do you guys think? How would you rank those vehicles based on these two criterias?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Antoine
