We shopped almost every SUV and VAN even bought a used Honda Odyssey but quickly sold the Honda. Did our research and found no other vehicle fit our needs. This is the best of both worlds - rides like a luxury car but larger and better capacity than the van. Every vehicle we looked at that had fold down seats not one of them were flat when folded. All of them had some sort of slope or had to be removed altogether. This has a perfectly flat cargo area with the seats folded down - perfect for dog crates. I have nothing bad to say about this vehicle in fact I've never liked a vehicle like I do this one. The price is also very reasonable compared to SUV's and Van's. A great wagon with a great price.
So far so good!!

Waited till I accumilated some mileage before posting again. I now have 89,000 miles on my 2.5 and its doing great. I haul a trailer 85% of the time and carry about 800 lbs of tools inside. Have not been easy on it and drive hard in the mountains. Still gets amazing gas mileage and no maintenance issues at all. I travel alot and needed better mileage than my old E 150. I found that pulling a small trailer I can carry mlre than with the Econoline and still get better fuel mileage! If you want a really tough van that you can count on , this is it.
Started out great but losing faith over time

When I heard Ford was bring the Transit to the US I was really excited, it was just the vehicle that would work for the family and my husbands small business... The first few days were great, then my husband notice a small vibration when the driven for the first mile each morning, driving at nights the head lights made it so hard to see that it made it difficult to drive a night. Took it to the dealer who was basically rude to both of us fixed the lights but told us the vibration was our imagination. The vibration got worse, and started making a thump when making a turn, and there were problems with the mirrors not folding out when on locking the door, took it back to the dealer and at first was told they were able to reproduce the issue and would fix then when we went to pick up the vehicle we were again told it was our imagination, and as to the mirrors not folding out that was the way it was suppose to work and we should "know our own vehicle" what ever that means. Finally today tired of all the little problems with the vehicle - plastic around passage seat broke, stupid whole under driver seat that catches everything that is dropped on the back passage seat floor with no way to get it, radio not going off when closing drivers door, interior lights not coming on, cracked windshield, the constant beeping the vehicle does when your driving and its snowing, and oh lets not forget the vibration in the mornings. We took it to the dealership which we could get into for two weeks, to only have the service guy laugh and send my husband on his way the warranty has expired. Really Ford can guarantee the transmission for 60000 miles but can't guarantee a simple plastic piece won't break after 36000 miles. What a rip off. Going back to the dealer tomorrow after talking to the Sales Manager at the dealership, not holding my breath.
Transit Connect is a rare hidden find!

I purchased a Transit Connect Titanium Long Wheelbase. I purchased new in South Carolina and drove it to AZ. No regular minivan drives like a car as this vehicle. It handles great, 29 MPG on highway, the Titanium model has all the toys, Navigation, heated seats, leather, power seat, power folding mirrors etc. This vehicle is so poorly advertised by Ford as it is primary audience for sales is Commercial however it is a great designed vehicle. The seats although a bit tricky to fold the first couple of times fold completely flat. I've hauled furniture in this vehicle and mine has a tow package which tows small trailers with no effort. Anyone considering a minivan that does not want to pay 35-40k should consider this vehicle. Get the Titanium and not any model lower if you want the features of other vans. You wont get power slider doors or video entertainment for the rear passengers but you will get a incredible vehicle in all other aspects and you will soon forget once behind the wheel that you are not driving a sedan. Ford really needs to market this vehicle more mainstream because unlike the prior generation Transit Connect this one is a totally different vehicle. Forget the negative reviews for the cargo versions...you get what you pay for and a cargo van is a empty box! Check the Titanium model out and you will get a 7 passenger vehicle with the capacity to haul anything you want. If you shop a bit you will also get one loaded for 25-27k!
Don't buy it

The service manager told me that all of Ford vehicles are defective, because they are built by robots. After I bought it. Two weeks Into ownership minor problems, paint, wheel covers, battery, none where fixed. I was actually told to go somewhere else to have it fixed. Battery cover fell off during transport, dealer didn't do a predelivery inspection , found it 6m miles later, damaged doesn't say anything. Brakes are no good, 8500 miles still not working properly. Hall O' Shame to Edmund's for not communicating the true value of this car to the consumers. Edmund's appraised this car at 5k miles at $14,000. I paid $30k You won't find that In Edmund's review. Cruise Control no good Engine is undersized as well as the braking system. Transmission slips, takes to long to engage from park. I cannot describe how cheap this vehicle is. Brand new condition you test drive and will not notice the horrific road noise resonating thru the tires. If you can find one for 14k go for it, otherwise don't bother with it. Total disservice to the consumer.

Roof rack for plywood but a ten foot piece of lumber fits inside (passenger seat folded fwd). I've had it to the dump twice and it folds back into a mini van in a minute. The back seats are a bit hard to get into but with privacy glass give you a changeing room after a bike ride. Very functional, pretty and feels very solid. Holds the road much better than my 2010 TC. OK so months later I still love this van. It takes me to Home Depot and though it is not a mega truck it is very useful. I'd buy it again. Adequate MPG enough power.
I don't know, I friggin' love this thing...

Hi guys... Well, i'm one of those guys that always dig "weird" "boxy" cars. I had 3 Honda Elements ( ie my favorite car of all time ), an FJ Cruiser ( served it's purpose ) and now I leased a 2015 Transit Connect Wagon. Mine isn't the Titanium but it's just below that. I actually built it from the ground up and my dealer was able to find one in Riverside CA and shipped to my dealer in Carlsbad. Where to start... I love this thing. Sure I have a one year old, but he lives with his mom up in Oregon ( long story ), but i'm one of those surfer/snowboarder/camper/bulldog owner kinda guys that likes to get out and have fun, but also likes comfort... I stumbled across this as I've always wanted a VW van but really don't feel like working on it everyday. My dealer gave me an amazing amount on the trade in of my FJ so I had to jump on it. I leased it as I always change my mind on cars, but this one I may actually purchase. I got the gloss black version as, if I purchase, will murder this sucker out and it will be all black ( rims / tint / etc ) and plus I didn't want to look like every other cargo van. Pro's: Overhead storage is so awesome Overhead mid storage ( option ) is also amazing. Similar to airline storage All seats fold flat. Mine actually stays that way all the time as I got the weather tech liner that goes from the back of the front seats all the way to the back doors. I'm only 5'4" so I can really lay out in this thing. Dual heat / AC zones. Great for camping. Heated windshield. No not defrost, heated... I'm interested to see how this works when up at the mountains. 180 degree opening doors. I opted for this vice the life rear gate as I wanted to mount all of my camping gear on the rear door panels, which worked out amazingly. Sound system. Opted for the best one the had and glad I did. The Navi and sound is great Mileage. I do mainly city driving but starting this week will be heading to Mammoth Mountain or Bear pretty much weekly. Getting 23.2 right now in the city which is light years ahead of my FJ. Turning fog lights. When not on constant, when you use your blinker, the side you are turning to lights up, making it so easy to see. Power outlets. One thing I love is that Ford puts fuses under the dash, as well as in the back. I was able to mount my power inverter and Bluetooth speaker, hard wired, into the fuse box for camping. And didn't have to run miles of cable Con's. Not a whole lot really. I'm anxious to see what it does in the snow. Only had since June and it's been flawless. You can hear some squeeks and such, but that could be that I keep all my camp gear in there at all times so it could be jossled around. Also, the sliding doors are now automatic, so you actually have to use your hands people. But hell, i'd rather do that than pay $50,000 for a Toyota minivan. My dealer also threw in a Thule roof rack. Now if there is a con, that is one of them, as putting that up is a pain in the "you know what". The don't give you any threads to bolt the rack in, so you have to use Jack Nuts to do it. Was my first time attempting but once I did one I was a pro. The Jack Nuts are about 14 bucks for 6 and a tool at Harbor Freight ran me 18 bucks, but my surf boards stay up there solid. Overall I love it, except now i'm seeing more people jump on the bandwagon and getting them. I'm working on making some rear curtains for a little more privacy, but it's basically done. I have all of the power outlets I need ( 2 3 prong in the pack and a bunch of USB up front ), mounted some extra LED lighting that come down and can be moved anywhere ( magnets hold up ) and mounted a cargo net on the inside roof for extra odds and ends while sleeping... Jump on the bandwagon and get the unminivan. You won't be disappointed... Thanx David
Most civilized vehicle I've driven

The 4 wheel disk brakes are very nice with smooth, positive and very controlled braking. Allows the smoothest stopping I've ever been able to do. The engine/transmission combination is the best I have ever driven. Snappy if needed and VERY smooth acceleration with shifting done quietly and without notice. The vehicle I have is a cargo van with trailer package, large mirrors and rear windows. It has no back seats. The vehicle has big front door entrance and is one reason I purchased. I am older and stiffer that used to be and my previous vehicle was a 05 Scion that was the easiest to enter of any car I have owned. I changed to Ford as Scion messed it up by making it sleeker and lower and harder to enter. The Ford gets 25.9 mpg which is acceptable to me now as gas has gone below $2.00 in my area. I have had one problem with my trailer package. When it is rainy or snowy, (undercarriage is wet) the warning lights tell me I have a faulty trailer light even though I'm not using a trailer. I went to the dealer for repair and the mechanic said he could not find a problem. I asked him if he wet the underside and he said no! IDIOT! I now have over 40,000 miles on the vehicle and it still gives me the the warning. I haven't been back to the dealer yet as I am in Virginia and the dealer is in Rock Hill, SC. It has recently been bought up by the Sonic Distributorship so I should probably go back and try again. This time I will wet it down before I take it in. I have checked the mileage against what the vehicle computer says and it is accurate and 25.9 is still my mileage. Other than this, I am very satisfied. Update with 60,000+ miles on vehicle. Still enjoying it as before. Mileage has improved a little and trailer hitch is still a problem. Overall, very satisfied.

Carbitrator problems, air conditioning will only blow in face, headlight great on high beams but lows are REALLY BAD, not much room for cargo behind last seat, seats don't adjust well, transmission jerks when it changes gears, all the plastic trim and parts are falling off all over car

We purchased this transit connect XL, LWB to be used as a mobile advertising for our company and also for deliveries. We are in the signs and printing industry, so we don't need a lot of space. I think this vehicle is overpriced, the msrp was around $ 24k but we got it for around $ 20k, it looks as a great deal but i think the price is high anyway for what you get. Finally we have a small commercial van in the USA that looks nice, the design is beautiful except the front grill, maybe the designer was under a strange effect when he designed the front grill, is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!, Acceleration is poor and i don't feel secure driving in speeds + 60 mp/h, I know this is not a mustang but the price is almost the same as the mustang base model, that's why i think is overpriced compared to vans such as the new and beautiful Kia Sedona for just $ 26k. A friend of mine also purchased this vehicle but the 7 passenger version, space is limited and seats are small, cheap quality interior and uncomfortable. The gas tank is too small, i have to pump 2 or 3 times a week, MPG is fine. I don't know why for people in the states manufacturers offer the worst, this same vehicle in UK is offered with the space cargo divider, something that looks nice and is crucial for security reasons, they don't offer original accessories neither as an option, we are obligated to buy low quality third parties accessories. Also this vehicle in EU has more options as third seat and better interior design with more room to accommodate little things, when i get into the vehicle i don't know where to put my cell, Folders or documents (top shelve is useless, do not have a front net to avoid things to run away in a curve), In the space between the back of the seat and the cargo area i put some documents, a pen and disappeared because i didn't realize there is a big open space there under the cargo area but is impossible to reach my lost documents.

I bought this van for my business, and it's been great. It holds all my stuff and it's easy to park in the city. The wide wheel base and rounded front end lets it slip easily into (and out of) tight spaces. I originally found the acceleration sluggish, until I simply moved the shifter from D to S (Selectshift). I was shocked at the improved acceleration! I wish I'd known about it earlier. Now it's the only way I drive it. I've had it a little over a year, and so far I love it.
I'm not sure what the rest of you are reviewing...

My experience is not anything like the rest of the reviewers. This is one of the worst vehicles I've ever been in. I'm using one for work. Terrible ride, terrible gas mileage, the seats are uncomfortable in all three rows, Bluetooth connection is a nightmare, it's massively underpowered. If a family is thinking about this, I would highly suggest you need to really evaluate the Honda and Toyota minivans instead. If there was a zero star option I would have given it.

A little more than two years ago, my wife sustained a spinal cord injury as a complication of meningitis. She now relies on a wheelchair to get around. Her limited mobility made it impossible for her to transfer to the passenger seat of her 4-Runner or my Tundra. Our daughter has a Dodge Charger. Because the seats are low, my wife could easily transfer to the passenger's seat. So we temporarily swapped my wife's 4-Runner for the Charger. This created a new problem. My wife's wheelchair does not fold up like a hospital wheelchair. It must be taken apart if it is to be placed in the trunk of the Charger. My wife and I found this problem to be unacceptable in the long term. As a result, my wife and I started looking for a vehicle that she could transfer into, that could carry additional passengers, and that had sufficient cargo space behind the rear seats to allow us to carry her wheelchair without taking it apart. The only vehicle we were able to find that met all of those criteria is the short wheel based Transit Connect Wagon. We have been using it for six months now. We equipped it with the 1.6 L Eco Boost engine. According to the Vehicle's on board computer our combined city/highway mileage is 25.6 mpg. Our daughter has her Charger back, and we have a vehicle that allows us to easily go on errands or trips without any significant inconvenience. Recently, we drove the Wagon from our home in Chandler, AZ to a town in the mountains, Pine, AZ . The performance of the vehicle surprised me. We had no problem climbing the hills as we went from an elevation of 1,100 feet to nearly 6,000 feet. Bottom Line: We are pleased. Update: We now have 7800 miles on the vehicle. The highway mileage is 29. City mileage is 25. Because we do more city driving the average is 26.5. Because the vehicle is small, my wife's friends are able to lift her wheelchair into the van with ease. As a result they don't think twice about taking her out for a girl's evening out. We are now more please with our Transit Connect Wagon.
Work van and it's great in SF.

It's small but roomy. I purchased it in January and have about 10k miles on it. I am 6'2' and it's very comfortable. I am in it a lot Monday through Friday. This model does not come with a glass on the sliding door so that is an upgrade in my immediate future that I need for getting out of parking spots. I also want a rear recordable camera for backing up and watching the back. I have one in the front. I didn't think I would like the rear lift gate but I do. Previous to this van I have had several Astro vans but of course they stopped making them. I had to downsize a bit on tools and equipment but some items and tools I carried around for years and never used so for me it was no problem. Everything about the van works great. The transmission sometimes seems a little confused. I believe it's made in France. We will see how long it lasts. My Astros went over 150k on the transmissions. Gas milage is almost twice the Astro so I am saving dollars left and right. So far a great little truck that fits everywhere.

I bought my little van the end of March and am anxious to see how it does with my work .. So far it has been a great van , very comfortable, easy to navigate turns ... Navigation takes some time to get use to but over all could not ask for anything better
