A wheelchair conversion

Asked by Kerryn McDonall

I AM thinking of buying either a Mercedes Vito or VW Transporter for conversion to a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. I may have to go for something as large as a Mercedes Sprinter or the Ford equivalent. I have also looked at the Renault Trafic and Fiat Ducato. I'd like to know which is the best for reliability. The van will need to last a long time.

IT'S really too early to speculate on the reliability of the present-model vans. I would be surprised if you needed a van as big as the Sprinter or Ducato to transport your 13-year-old daughter. I would take a look at the Vito, Transporter and Trafic before the Transit. The latter has a pretty ordinary reputation for reliability. Have a talk to the people at Capital Special Vehicles, who specialise in doing the conversions.
