    Hi, We are planning to buy an extended Ford Transit T250, High Roof, 3.7l

    We put about 150K miles per year. Can this van last 3 years, 500K Miles?

    I know that diesel V6 Sprinter can go higher, 1M miles maybe.

      Any vehicle will go as far as your wallet will take it. What tolerance your wallet has is up to you.

      What's wrong with the Sprinter you just bought?

      Already DEF issues, less than 8K miles on the odometer, and the driver adds peak blue regularly.

      I like to receive my information from various sources. There is no need to be rude. If You don’t like it go to another post.

      If you think i am rude .. then leave ..
      There is already 3,000 too many Spr/Pro/Trans/cargo Vans ... we don't need bragging up rates ... everyone has there rates they will run for .. but for NEWBIES (which you are ) to jump in ask lots of Questions and then post those rates the first 2 weeks in Business ...
      My point is Newbies sometimes jump on the Cash Big Miles Wagon early .. only to have it blow up in their face in 3 months when they can't make Van payments...
      So step back .. take a couple of Breaths and go forward with baby steps ... or you won't last in this business...

      I’m looking at 2017 Model, extended with 18K miles, $30K. No reason to spend over $40K on new.

      Maybe not but, very new low mileage used units are often someone dumping a problem.

      NO! Absolutely not!
      Don't need more competition with these vans.

      Besides, That's what I'm looking for
