2013 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van XL 4dr Minivan w/o Side & Rear Glass (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I love this little van !!!! I use it to transport staging materials for my Real Estate Listings and to carry all of my tools for making necessary repairs to the new listings that I take. It's the perfect size for me and easy to drive and park. Gas mileage could be a little better but I have it loaded with my tools all the time. I barely drive my car since I purchased it because I like driving it so well. It's adorable !!!!!

Do not buy this vehicle for any purpose, You will be sorry.
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.
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.
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.
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.
