2010 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van XLT 4dr Minivan w/Side & Rear Glass (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I am a physically challenge guy who uses a power w/c. Since I'm 6'2" tall I require a vehicle with a lot of headroom. My faithful 92 E-150 had a raised roof but after 16 winter road salt seasons, it was getting all rusted out underneath. Not safe anymore. New w/c vans cost $50K+. I was able to put a Bruan lift in a new Trancon for just under $30K total, and Ford sent me a rebate for $1,200. I get 23 mpg in mixed driving with the A/C on and thats what the Trancon is all about. The headroom is perfect for me. My main gripe is the rear springs are very stiff. Going over some interstate overpasses at 70 mph even with the 330 lb w/c lift in the back is brutal rough, but hay, it's a work truck.


Best Features

Gas mileage, easy to park. I don't need to use a handicapped parking stall anymore. 59" of headroom. Most people think they only come in white. My red TC gets lots of attention.


Worst Features

Ford needs to offer a dealer installed soundproofing option. Rear window wipers are a joke. A little more power would be nice on the highway

2010 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van XL 4dr Minivan w/Side & Rear Glass (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love the design of these, although the ride quality could use some major improvement. The engine is capable, although takes quite a while to get it to Freeway speed. With the air conditioning on it really saps the power too. I have been dropping it out of overdrive to gain more power with the A/C on. The transmission seems quite capable and makes up for some of the little engines deficiency. After driving the TC for 5 months I have come to really dislike the suspension qualities. Every tar strip and bump is felt. It smooths out a little at freeway speeds, but at slower speeds, there are noticeable rattles and squeals. Ford needs to get with Bilstein shocks for some suspension refinement.


Best Features

The design is awesome. The interior is cavernous. Can be customized to taste.


Worst Features

The factory radios are just plain awful. The factory wheels could use improvement. The suspension and under powered engine has been hard to live with for the long haul. Factory wiper blades needed to be replaced because those were awful. Ford has the basis for a great van but it needs improvements.

2010 Ford Transit Connect Wagon XLT 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

After driving this van in Europe I am glad that it is now available in the US. I use is as my personal vehicle not for any business. A truly utilitarian vehicle that combines all the good road manners, efficiency and fuel economy - this IS a true SUV - not the huge "living rooms on wheels" that call themselves SUVs. Power is very adequate, handling is great and the interior room is much larger than many full-size SUVs or trucks. Parking is just as good - fits easily where a mid-size car would. Turning radius is fantastic nice and the van turns on a dime. Seats are very comfortable for the long haul. All in all a very nice vehicle indeed.


Best Features

Lots of room for everything, comfortable seats, easy access to everything through wide sliding doors and great handling, fuel economy


Worst Features

Perhaps the only improvement would be a turbo-diesel engine or an Eco Boost gasoline engine to add a couple of more HP.

2010 Ford Transit Connect Wagon XLT 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This wagon not only holds the grandkids, but all of the toys too. Built a box in the back to hold camping/travel gear. We can fold down rear seats and set up air mattress for unscheduled sleepovers.


Best Features

Love the head room in the back, storage area in front and the 40/60 split seats that fold two ways.


Worst Features

Side sliding doors need working windows. Rear door stabilizers that hold the door open when it is fully extended, the slightest breeze will slam them shut. Another foot in length would be great,

Review

Gas mileage good. Power good. Style good. Interior room . Awesome. I traded in a Ford escape. Been on trips, mostly drive in town like most of us. Stops great. Some gmc cut over in front of me the other day and the transit did extremely well. I do wish they had a luxury package or more add-ons. Fab for hauling stuff. John Jones Stone mountain, ga.


Best Features

Style and functions. I am a beekeeper and I can put whole hives in the vehicle without having to split the hive boxes.


Worst Features

Need more accessories and luxury options. Would love better more luxury front seats.
