Best Features

Worst Features

Furnish a transmission that last more than 15,000 miles inadequate roof support for ladder rack, roof now cracked at factory installed hard points. Very little savings in gas mileage compared to a full-sized van with six cylinder engine.

2013 Ford Transit Connect Wagon XLT Premium 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Here's my huge complaint about this vehicle: It doesn't turn off its own lights. The problem is that I haven't driven a car made since 1990 where it was even possible to leave the lights on so that the battery ran down. Other things they NEED to improve: can only unlock the rear cargo doors with key fob. It's impossible to lock the keys in the car (good) but keeping the fob handy at all times is annoying. Back seats: can fold down one, or all, but can't leave 1 up and fold down 2, which would be my preference. Otherwise, it's nimble, pickup is good enough for my purposes. I miss some other amenities of my 2006 hhr but the price was good here.


Best Features

Great hauler (except bed-length). I can almost stand up in it, so it can double as a camper. Easy to find in parking lot.


Worst Features

Heat faster, auto lights off, back seats more options to fold away, storage in sides of back (vs. hollow plastic molding), option for heated seats, use different warning sound for keys left in ignition vs. lights on. Suspension is creaky. Add vent windows in front for driver and passenger.
