2011 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van XLT 4dr Minivan w/Rear Glass (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

We are a Commercial Bakery, servicing 3 close linked towns and their "eateries". Our Transit has performed flawlessly 6 days a week for two and a half years ( West Coast Canada). We replaced a 3/4 Ton full size V8 with this Transit Connect. We carry approx. 750-900 lbs. per trip, three trips a day. Terrain is varied but all pavement. The monthly savings in fuel pays half the truck payment. Maintenance has been minimal, biggest concern a leaking door seal replaced under warranty. As an owner I have 4 decades of fleet experience in the movement of goods across Canada; Agricultural and Mining heavy hauling fleets. As a small business owner this vehicle is a gem with a tiny carbon footprint.

Best Features

Tall rear door entry area. Forklift friendly. Dual side door access major bonus. Solid Rear axle provides high stability with a full load. 4 Cylinder has plenty of guts to do the work and be environmentally friendly and economical at the same time.

Worst Features

Adjustable headrests to change forward lean when straightening up both front seats. Rear Cargo Door Locks need to be "unlocked" at every stop... should be a feature to disable this.
