My engine also sounded like that when I first got it. The clip holding the air intake pipe together had alot of play (not damaged, just a very loose fit). A zip tie around the pipe has almost eliminated any rattling. So much quieter. Might be worth a look.Had my nv200 for two years now and has 52,000 miles on it,had a few problems,central locking has failed twice which were repaired under warranty,had 3 windscreens changed.
Things i can fault are ; unstable in crosswinds
engine sounds like someone left a spanner in there.
Clutch judder on first 5 mins of driving then seems to go away
other than that a good van,good on fuel,pleased with it
My experience so far is this. BCM had to be replaced x2 with less than 10,000mi on it. Just experienced while driving "I press the blue tooth on my phone to go hands free to make a call and the navigator screen flashed on and off and again then the entire system seemed to have to reboot". After rebooting the buttons that surround this screen all are flashing in red mind you. I had to pull to the side of the highway turning the vehicle off. After a restart everything was fine. Having it looked at next Monday the 27th. Seems to me to be a hardware or software issue.I'm starting up a new business and I'm looking at the new NV200. I have a few Ford Transits used in the area but I've heard bad things about them. Is there any known problems with these vans yet? My dealer is offering a life time unlimited time/unlimited miles warranty on the drive train.
I have the same problem with the brake switch,My minor annoyances:
- faulty brake light switch (this leads to ABS and anti slip disabling, both warning light come on). Dealer replaced it, but I adjusted it myself afterwards (5 minute job).
- windshield washer freezing (I know, I know, it's -20C here in the winter, but still). Here's the faulty part:
All in all, pretty happy with it. I do close to 1000kms/week, so I'll post any reliability issues if they come up.
Check this web page. The NV200 uses a similar switch. Once this switch is out (do not disconnect the harness) , the stop lamps will come on. I adjusted mine by barely depressing the brake pedal and putting the switch back in until the stop lamps go out.I have the same problem with the brake switch,
Dealer replaced it 2 times
How do you "adjust it" ????
