Great Little Van with some imperfections

Cargo Van XL 4dr Minivan w/Rear 180 Degree Doors LWB (2.5L 4cyl 6A)

I have owned this van LWB XLCargo for 15 months and 26k. Overall I like this van. I use it as a delivery vehicle to deliver oil and make sales call to my customers. Not that I'm not happy with this van but I wish I would have purchased an XLT model. I've added a backup camera. Tinted the windows. Love the tinted glass. I'll list the things that Ford SHOULD have improved upon first. LOW POINTS 1. Fuel tank is too small. 15.8 gallons 2. Stock tires in the upper midwest suck in the winter. 3. Road noise is greater than I'd like. Maybe Ford should have add extra insulation under the Vinyl flooring. 4. The ride is a little firm on rough roads especially when empty but smooths out considerably when loaded. 5. Engine power is adequate in most driving situtaions but could use a boost for freeway on ramps. That being said I can cruise at 75 mph or higher without issue. HIGH POINTS 1. Excellent fuel economy 25-27 in mixed driving, Over 30 mpg on the interstate trips. 2. Excellent handling 3. Great visibility 4. Comfortable seats even for long trips 5. Select Shift transmission UPDATE 34 months and 50k miles. I've had Zero issues with this van. It's been great in the snow with Michelin Defenders. If I could change 1 thing I'd give it more power. Although I've had no issues driving in nasty Wisconsin winters it would be great if there was an AWD option. Update September 2021 My opinion haven't changed. Great van for my needs.

Rusty Paint for New 2018 Ford Transit Connect

The Ford dealer delivered a vehicle with rust in the white paint and promised to replace the vehicle and instead has left it up to me to get repaired and the dealers cannot remove the rust. What a hassle! Inspect the paint thoroughly!

Have owned four years in February 2021 currently, still working well for our needs easy to handle, get the windows tinted to help the A/C. Takes up little space in the garage. Great head room. Update 3/5/19 Installed aftermarket roof rhino-racks and aero-bars, this was for a Thule pod, it helps when the in-laws visit, and we go camping, we are going to install a receiver hitch for bicycles this summer. Update 3/6/20 Receiver and rack and POD, really worked out for longer trip, We drove 4 adults and two kids to Moab, avg 26 MPG though varied elevation on a 2500 mile trip. The aftermarket racks can hold more than the stock ford rack, it was a pain to install the rails, pay a professional, if you do it yourself get cold quenched drill-bits the steel will dull anything else. We just returned from using the van to camp below MT Adams. It handled the unpaved roads well the washboard was a little hard but not bad the kid laughed at the water in the bottles bouncing around. Ford should offer camping improvement a 1"more clearance would be nice that being said we never bottomed out, and a bash plate still did not need but would be nice.

Great little wheel chair hauler

My wife has Parkinson’s. We have a custom manual wheel chair for her. The low deck and roomy back (I removed the rear seats) are perfect for the chair, and for getting her in and out. The 4ft ceiling height is perfect for her chair with its head gear. The liftgate works like an awning to keep the rain off when loading and unloading. We live in the mountains of NC and it easily handles the hills and curves. It’s like a little sports car in a big box.
