“My first impressions”

Written on: 08/08/2011

I am very happy of owning the sport van from new for the last three months. It is really great looking, comfortable, and powerful. Three thousand km on the road now and everything working ok. The only thing I don't like is the green colour of the car computer display. It’s very difficult to read the information shown on the display, because of the poor display colour resolution. This is something that has to be changed… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2011

I bought my black 2009 Transit 260 Sport Van from Marshalls at Cambridge, traded in my Mazda 5 MPV, only 4000 miles on the clcok, but it just WASN'T Transit. I had been driving an old "L" reg, 1993 "Smiley Face" low roof for the last 13 years,don't do that many miles a year but it was time to upgrade. The Sport van I bought had been modifed inside with a massive great wide full FOUR person seat. It folds down flat if you wanted a sleep out in the van and also folds up flat against the back… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2010

Had this van from brand new. The van looks the part but not really the part for a work tool. Had many issues with this van which to be fair to Ford have been sorted but took too much of my time. The screws to the steps (front bumper) were rusty and left bad stains on the alloy steps, these were replaced three times under the warranty as the same problem kept occurring, now the screws have been upgraded to avoid this problem but what a waste of the the plates when they should have upgraded the… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2012

Interesting I have the same van but converted to a motor home. It's a 2008 and after 14,000 miles it broke down - suspected injector prob which caused a hole in the piston which meant a new engine! £3000. Now 1000 miles later broke down again - this time ford say new turbo! £2200. Is this just bad luck or a known problem. Lost all confidence in this vehicle which was supposed to be used for relaxing weekends away with the family but instead caused huge stress, lots of time waiting for tows and a huge amount of money!

I have had transit vans for years & had no problems with them at all so when ford brought out the 'rolls royce of transit vans'I just had to buy it! What a mistake!A total waste of money,it is unreliable as the turbo cuts out almost everyday,the tyres are a total joke,the engineer at fords admitted off the record that this model have a real bad problem with the wheels buckling causing the tyres to wear,he said the only solution was to sell it privately as fords part ex scheme was a joke and… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2010

Transit sportvan, black, 2 leather heated seats fitted rather than bench seat. Its an excellent van love it, just dont love the tyre wear. 25k miles and onto third set on front. Got 14k out of second set which were Kuhmo. This is better than 9k on the continentals that were originally fitted. So another set on today, hopefully another 14k miles on these ones. They are not too badly priced either. The only headache is getting a punture, bloody stupid goo and compressor dont seem to do a lot… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2010 by LLCJ4 (1 review written)

Bought the van in July, I've had 5 transits previous, Panther Black, Ford fully lined rear, first 2 services towbar and tank of diesel for free. Drives like a dream, no tyre problems,after 8k, yet. Only problem has been trim rattle under nearside wiper, had been booked in for 6/01/10, but Ford wouldn't road-test in snow, so has to be re-booked. I'm planning to superchip or Bluefin upgrade, any thoughts on this ? Cheers. James Weldon. P.S. Ford have said there is a 5 pot, Volvo, engine,180bhp… Read Full Review

I love my Ford Transit Sport Van 2. I have chipped and delimited it and to address the tyre issue I have filled them with Nitrogen so the walls dont flex as much and at 6000 miles the tyres look perfect, I sometimes find the van starts and cuts out but I am updating the ECU this week so hopefully that will be sorted with the update.I have put an HID kit which is perfect… Read Full Review
