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


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.
