    Nissan NV or Ford Transit

    I posted this on the vehicle board, but it doesn't seem like there is as much traffic there, so I decided to post here. I hope that's ok.

    Does anyone have either? We are considering getting a 10 passenger Transit and I'd love to hear thoughts on either vehicle. I drove a 10 passenger yesterday and I was really impressed with how it handled. It didn't feel like I was driving a huge vehicle. I just went for a quick drive around the neighborhood (it was owned by someone I got in contact with on Facebook and she was gracious enough to let me drive it), so I didn't do any highway driving, but I'm going to test drive one at a dealership next week. I'm also going to test drive the NV this weekend. We live in a climate with snow, so I'm wondering how important all wheel drive is. I currently drive a minivan that just has rear wheel drive and it seems to do ok the snow, but the Transit and NV are much bigger. I don't think either has a AWD option, so if we wanted that, we'd probably have to get a Sprinter. I haven't done much research on that one, so if anyone has thoughts on that one, that would be great! Thanks, everyone!

    I know several members have NVs but I am not sure if anyone has a Transit. Both are really nice. I am not familiar with options though, but one friend in Alaska chose the NV, so perhaps it has options for snow?
