    They are fine if you are under 5 foot 11 and are not carrying any weight. I'm 6 foot and lasted only a 8 days in one before my knees were getting so bad I had to limp. Working for ADT in there commercial department on large scale projects they are worthless. We need to have a second one follow you around with our equipment. The fuel savings isn't much better either.

    This van is the biggest piece of junk I have ever driven. There is not one good thing I can say about this vehicle> I am on my third transmission and headed for my fourth. Fleet people should wake up and look at the Caravan Ram C/V I have experience with, light years a better vehicle more suited to ADT and my needs.

    The Transit is ideal for these technicians due to their work conditions; the road they travel down are typical very narrow. The shorter wheel base indeed helps with parking of the vehicle. For ADT; the Transit is no bigger than it needs to be to get the job done.

Audi Q7 3.0T

When I think of a seven-seat, three-row SUV, I usually wouldn't think it would be nimble. Even five-seat SUVs would have a hard time convincing me they were quick, but that was my experience with the 2017 Q7.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
