THIS IS MY WORK VAN-- I HALL FOOD AND STUFF AROUND-- ITS GOT GOOD AIR CODITIONER AND GOOD MILAGE FOR STOPGO TRAFFIC IN BAYRIDGE--I GOT NO COMPLNTS ABOUT THE VAN--GOT 80000MILES ON IT ALREADY GOOD TRUCK
Good for me to carry my musical equiptment. I first saw this van over in the United Kingdom before they brought them from Europe to the USA. I loved the look of this little truck and when they made it to the US I knew I would have to get one. I like the earlier design 2013 and back. Mine is a 2013 wagon version. I have a removable curtain to hide the cargo area and my windows are tinted out black to hide my cargo. It's fun to drive but doesn't win any races. No problem passing on the freeway when you are up to speed. It's a European economy vehicle which is what I wanted. It's like a Mini or a VW Beetle with much more room. Hopefully it will prove mechanically reliable, only had mine a little over a month. Love it!
We converted to a wheelchair van. It gets good mileage and at 80? high it fits in Parking Garages. It was a little noisy so put sound insulation behind rear panels to hold medical supplies. Have 115000 miles on it with no unusual problems.
I would purchase again.
My experience with Lee Auto Group was unforgettable! They treated me like a part of the family and showed me they were ONLY looking out for my best interest, as oppose to merely trying to make a sale. They are great business folk, and I would recommend anyone to go there for a thorough, fervent, affable, and professional experience. Don’t let the looks fool you!
Ford dropped the ball on this one!

I am 6'5" tall, and I love the height of this wagon. I can enter and exit the vehicle without hitting my head. On the down side, the front wheel bearings keep on wearing out. They are only good for 25k miles or so. They are press fit into the spindle and you can not lubricate them. Therefore, you are doomed to buying new bearings on a regular basis. The steering wheel has developed a 3/4" rocking deviation at the edge. I have never experienced this problem in any other car. If feels as if the steering wheel wants to shake right off the steering column. Another problem is the door lock actuators. They also fail on a regular basis. When they break, they make this monstrous buzzing noise. Then, they will either not work at all, or in the case of the drivers door, totally lock you out with the engine running. At about 106k miles,the transmission started to slip badly while up shifting. It was pretty scary to be accelerating on to a road and finding yourself with zero power and a transmission that is making that buzzing noise of death. My Ford dealer had to replace the transmission for USD.3,000.00. That was not an expense that I was anticipating. In conclusion, I would think twice before ever buying a Ford product again.
