I am looking for some feedback on the Ford Transit 2010 - 2012. or the Scion XB. Does anyone currently use these on there inspection runs?
Looking for Pro's and Cons.

I've put about 16000 kms on my 2012. Got it new & cheap in 2013. If you're city driving mainly it's great. On the highways it has trouble cruising in overdrive over 110 kmh (70mph). It's quite gutless. Fuel economy is good. I average about 520 kms per tank. That works out to approx 8.6 lts /100kms (just over 27mpg). Road noise is bad at highway speed. If you go into it thinking creature comfort forget it. It's a typical work van. But for our task at hand, it's perfect. And wrapped it looks great. Great mobile billboard. I'll post it on the vehicle contest thread soon.

We have a 2011 transit. Cannot beat the advertising space, mileage (26 mpg) and storage room of the van. Wish it had a little more power.

I always thought it would be pretty cool to have ML350's as a fleet. They're fairly inexpensive, easy to logo/wrap, and give a professional appearance.

In the process of converting my wife's old mini van into work vehicle. Not sure if I want to get it painted and do decals or just do a full wrap.
