Fast, reliable, no gimmicks it does what it says on the tin! Nothing on the van causes annoyance when in daily use. Ford option prices are quite cheap i.e aircon is £550 ofn the Connect and on the VW Caddy it's £1,000.
Engine management is obviously set up for low emissions...while this is good it does mean that sometimes the engine cannot make up it's mind what it wants to do.
Some trim in the rear compartment would be nice, as would a carpet in the front!
I have done over 250,000 miles in various small vans and the Connect is the best so far. No problems with reliability at all (that other chap doesn't work for Vauxhall/Renault/Fiat or similar does he?). I've had the van since new and it's never been back to the dealer except for routine maintenance.
