Terrible truck

Transmission issues since purchased. Steering failure after 600 miles. Took 6 weeks in the shop to fix. Intermittent radio issues like defaulting to FM after leaving off for more than 10 min and listening to AM before.. Doors need to be slammed to lock/latch in the back. Sliding door needed rubber filler for the door stop open position. Just really bad initial quality. Dealer said trani is fine. Slam the doors it’s a work truck. Radio was worked on but same issue.

The only 3 things that are a con: 1) no swivel front seats, 2) there is some type of "thing" or pump or motor that grumbles intermittently - I know its "normal" because every owner remarks about it yet nobody can give an answer as to what it is. It may grumble once or twice, sometimes 20 times before being quiet for the night. 3) When you take off and put it in drive (so you think) it passes "D" and goes into a manual gear which makes you hesitate or bog down until you click it back a notch to Drive. Other that that- zero glitches at 50k miles

Ford transit cargo owner now for 6 years

Ok, I needed a new work truck for me for my painting and remodeling business, I have always owned ford cargo vans before, the higher roof had my interest as for me getting older and it’s just easier to get materials in and out while still able to stand. The gas mileage is disappointing I get 9 mpg (no eco boost motor) I had shelving installed on day one, within two months the mounting brackets tore out of the walls, the metal this truck is made out of is very thin and if you even push the cargo door shut on the sheetmetal , as a friend of mine did on mine, you will have a dent/crease in panel. FSt forward 6 years and 49k miles, now I get a dash notification stating, hill start assist not available, along with my ABS system not working and all warning lights on now. Took into see what code comes up and to my surprise, no codes were found. I’m just starting to look into this issue as I write this so I don’t know what this hill start assist light will need to repair issue. Just my experience with mine. Was hoping for better gas mileage and disappointed by thin sheet metal used. But other then that, I like it.

From Cargo Van to Class B Camper!

We had test driven several competitors' vehicles, and by far, the Ford Transit Cargo Van was the smoothest, comfiest, and in our opinion, safest vehicle for us to purchase for the purpose of converting into a Class B Camper.

Cruise Control is not standard

And the salesman didn't mention it. I didn't even see it on the order form. Who sells a vehicle without cruise control in 2023?
