Bongo bangers?
June 22, 2010 4:54 AM   Subscribe

What experience has the mind-net had with Mazda Bongos?

I am about to buy a Bongo, but the whole area is a minefield; not least because I cannot inspect it myself before buying!

I've had some good tips from a local specialist, but please; let me know your experience of Bongos!

What goes wrong?
What was wrong when you got it?
Can you can recommend any specific dealers in the UK? (Please PM names)

Maybe the Bongo Fury people can help.

More usefully - nthing Bongo Fury; my folks had one for many years and BF were very helpful. The van itself was everything one might hope for - not cheap but brilliant. Benefits from regular servicing, fuel consumption got heavy if you did more than 70, spend the time and money on a good one at the start.

You want Imperial Cars, Poole if you're looking to buy a newly converted one. Not a customer myself, but I live locally and have heard good things about them anecdotally. I've also heard that they can guzzle fuel if you drive too fast / hard and need good regular maintenance to make the most of them.
