Guest's review of Ford Transit Connect

★★★★★

“I have done over 250,000 miles in various small vans...”

Written on: 14/11/2008

Good Points
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.

Bad Points
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!

General Comments
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.

I've driven my new style Berlingo for 277,000 miles and love the handling,ride and performance, and will definitely buy another. I drove a hired Transit Connect for a month, and it was a dreadfu vehicle. It cornered like a roller skate, and I had to concentrate hard on the throttle to keep any kind of speed up! Wind noise was awful from 65mph upwards!
