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. 63k Van still performs as expected. Maintenance, Rear brakes and replaced a weak battery and scheduled oil changes.

Ford Motor Company purchased the vehicle back from us and we couldn’t be more pleased with them doing the right thing.

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.

Great van

I have the 2018 transit connect long wheel base cargo van . I am a courier so I need room, fuel efficiency, confort, and power. This van has it all. I have put 230,000 miles on it in less than 3 years. I have not had one single problem out of it. I do keep on top of scheduled maintenance. I use only full synthetic oil. I regularly load it to the 1600 lb capacity. Even fully loaded it pulls mountains at 65 mph and would go faster if I pushed it. Gas mileage is usually anywhere from 27.5 to 31 mpg. Obviously higher on long freeway trips. I do notice a small drop off in perfomance now that it has so many miles but still a great van. If all goes well it will have over 300,000 on it at the end of this year.
