If your appetite for carrying or towing is massive, Ford's Transit Connect will come up short. And if you enjoy some level of refinement in your van or wagon, traditional minivans – even tho
With its tall roof and relatively narrow track, Ford's Transit Connect is far removed from its long-time predecessor in the cab industry, the Crown Victoria. But with a turning radius of just under 39 feet, and an overall width close to that of Ford's subcompact Focus, the Transit Connect proves appropriately nimble for short hauls, and generous in its interior volume for the long haul.

"Currently a Service Manager for a Food and Beverage service company. We replaced three of our trucks in November of 2011, from E250 and Sprinters. The thought was better fuel rates and cheaper investment. However the Transit is extremely uncomfortable if you are taller then 5'7", no leg room at all. We have racked the trucks however we have found that there is not enough room for what we do. A large hill is the trucks enemy, no power to get out of its own way. The three trucks fuel consumption is about 20mpg average when stock with equipment. Tank is so small that techs are having refuel twice a day, decreasing billable time. At this point we have sold one, the other two are being sold. We will never purchase these again."

"Nice little van, No balls what soever!! I added helper springs to take out some sag. Over all I get 22 MPG This van will pay for itself in 18 months or less with gas savings. Its terribly overloaded but the reality is it didn't have great power with nothing in it!! I can still hit 80 or better on the highway, it just takes 15 miles to get there!. Overall a great truck and will upgrading my fleet one at a time with theses bad boys."
