Ford cuts costs of running older Transits


Operators of older Transit vans have been given a boost to their running costs after Ford slashed the price of parts.

Certain components for Transit and Transit Connect models that are more than four years will now be up to 58 per cent cheaper.

The move follows the recent launch of Motorcraft 4+ from Ford – a parts and service package specifically aimed at drivers of cars and vans aged four years plus.

The programme will see for example customers paying £210 less for a replacement clutch slave cylinder on a 2000–2006 Ford Transit.

Other Ford and Ford Motorcraft value range parts available at a reduced price will include brake discs and linings, oil, air and fuel filters, clutch kits, clutch release bearings and dual mass flywheels, and suspension wishbones, control arms and wheel bearings.

According to Ford of Britain Customer Service Division director Jon Wellsman, the price cuts on regular service parts will produce savings that customers really notice. “Ford commercial vehicle dealers offer top quality parts installed by trained technicians – now at an even more competitive cost,” he says.
