2015 Transit Connect Owner Reviews (3)
Best work van we have owned!
Purchased five 2014 connects in 2013 and four 2015 in 2014. Some have over 200,000 miles with only a broken $50 plastic side door handle. Excellent transmissions and great fuel mileage. We haul and tow over the maximum weight constantly and while they get excellent fleet care they are worked very hard. Absolutely no issues mechanically and they have plenty of headroom for tall drivers. While I had my doubts in the beginning having owned nothing but Econolines, these Transit Connects have proven to be a very dependable asset to our business.
Bad Review?.. Hardly..
Not sure the reason that previous review as so short and harsh towards the 2015 Ford Transit Connect. Our 1 year anniversary is approaching April 18th and we currently have 17,689 miles on our TC.Our ownerships has not bee without flaws.. One key point is being that I'm 6" foot tall.. and sitting close to the steering wheel because of chronic back pain.. this limits my view of the gauge cluster and well as the tachometer. In essence and what needs to be done, is to have the center molded panel remove, alter/cut and then replaced. I was tempted to do this myself, but I fear a butchered job would not suit very well with the wife. One other issue, is when we purchase a new set of wheels and tires.. We opted for the 16x7 Sparco wheels w/ 215/55/16 Maxxis Victra tires.. I was skeptical about this combination and later learn that we should have opted for the 225's instead of the 215's.. but this will come to pass in about 50K more miles.One final note: Due to the gas prices, our Transit Connect has been doing extremely wall over this last year and although we haven't went on any major trips yet.. We have traveled to and through a few states. The van is very comfortable and handles like a dream. Proof of this came while vacationing in Arkansas.. Mainly driving through Missouri.. The van cornered like a sports car and turns on a dime, but don't let this van fool you.. it is top heavy like all the other vans within the same price and performance range.
