Despite HubNut's virtuous report on the LDV, I have to say that, after having driven EVERY incarnation of that vehicle (Sherpa, Freight Rover, LDV 400, Convoy, et al) for the past 30 years, it really is a heap of f*%@#*# c%#p 😆
They leak like a colander, rust like a horseshoe, shake-rattle-and-roll like Bill Haley, brake like an oil tanker and fall apart like Bonny Tyler!!! 😟
Really, they do...they just do.
But...they were cheap!
Which is why fleet managers loved 'em.
Until the repair and maintenance bills came in!!
Then Mercedes proclaimed that "Good engineering pays you, not costs you" (remember that advertising slogan?)
Suddenly, everyone bought Sprinters...🤷♂️
