excellent value for the money

by from Oregon, WI on April 20, 2017

Large cargo area, while not a very large vehicle. Reasonably quiet and comfortable for a utility vehicle. Fairly efficient on gas for this type of use. OK , but not great power at highway speeds.

Bought used 101,000 mi, drove 2500 mi ok so far.

It is low to the ground, easy for old people to get in and out. Short cargo area. Mine vibrates at idle, and back seat rattles if folded down. Sometimes it is hard to lock because of door open sensors. Back up camera is needed. Visors need extenders for short drivers. Sun block film needed on windshield behind the rear view mirror. Mechanically everything is working well so far. I love to drive it, (female age 70) and it has the back seats plus the cargo area for hauling small things if needed. Great for shopping for large items, just not lumber or plywood. Two more feet of length in the cargo area is much needed. I bought a 16' board, they cut it in half, and I rested it on the front armrests to get it home.

Way too small for construction

I was looking for a quality used truck for work. The cargo area is less than 6' long. no way to get a standard 8' piece of lumber. Even for an everyday consumer would be disappointed if they went to a home improvement store to pick up a small load of lumber.

Great van

Bought used with 80k miles. All systems go. Twice the mileage of my 2008 E150. I'm averaging about 25mpg mixed driving. Drives like a car. I wish it was a bit more comfortable, I'm 6'3, and have all kinds of head room, but the seat is a bit short on the legs. Came with the cage behind the seats, so I can't recline as much as I'd like to, but this is a minor inconvenience. Much easier and more enjoyable to drive than the E150. Love it so far. Only had a month or so, but love it!

This car has outperformed previous ratings posted so I was pleasantly surprised. I have gotten consistently higher gas mileage than posted. It is a little noisy inside and it seems like it needs one more higher gear on the highway so the engine is not running at such high rooms, but outside of those it is great!

This is the only box-car of this kind that is available in the US. These cars are very practical and work great for a small business or quick deliveries. However, this model is way less in Europe because the competition is much larger and Ford is selling the transit connect for too much here in the US... The Honda Element provides the same boxy loading space but provides way more features and a better ride for the same price. I also miss the diesel engine Ford offers in Europe and the rest of the world.

This is an awful vehicle. I thought it would be perfect for my job as a courier. Well it can fit a lot of stuff and the gas mileage is good for its size, it has failed to be reliable. It's not even two years old and different things keep breaking and most of them my warranty won't cover. Wipers won't work. Water somehow got in my coils and ruined them, probably because there is a tough atop the engine which the coils sit in. Dumb design. The back door joints are rusting up and are hard to open. I sprayed lube in them but that didn't make it much better. The engine frequently dies on me in the middle of traffic. But alas, I've put 88k of miles on it and I owe too much to get rid of it. I'm screwed- THANKS FORD
