I was looking at buying a Transit, but no longer after seeing these reviews. I can't afford to get a loan to repair one

I think it is way overdue that everyone in this review space and anyone else with problems try a class action on Ford and or everyone show up at a Dealership who has problems, even if you have to tray truck your none working transit there in mass protest. They are dealing with you all on a one on one basis and you get nowhere. Time to start a facebook page for these heaps of troubles. John Cadogan on Auto Expert may have done a review and he may be a place to contact also.

Best vehicle I have owned

Have owned my 2018 VO transit for over a year and put 60,000kms on it.
Great fuel economy for a large van.
Really good power from the turbo diesel engine, always had plenty of acceleration uphill.
Comfortable sitting position.
Auto gearbox if flawless.
Plenty of room and storage compartments.
Apple play as standard is a nice touch.
Drives better than any 4x4 turntable diesel I have owned.
Currently converting mine to a camper. Show details

Broken down for 2 Months - FORD hasnt even diagnosed the problem

Our 2017 regularly serviced work van wouldnt turn on after a work event. Couldnt get our equipment home. Had to tow to our local mechanic who said it was a Ford specific issue. Called every Ford service centre in a 400km radius and all had waits of 2-4 months. Spent $800 towing it to a service centre and they still have no diagnosis for us. No updates or call backs. Costing our business a fortune. NEVER again Ford.

Adaptive cruise control is dangerous

Just purchased a 2020.5 Ford Jumbo overall a decent van except for the adaptive cruise control have had near misses so far with the cruise control braking suddenly due to a car changing lanes in front off me with 3 to 5 car lengths distance. This on at least 2 occasions has caused the car behind me to either have to lock breaks up or swerve to avoid rear ending me all off this was on the freeway at 110km hour. I visited 3 dealerships until I found someone who could change the settings to normal cruise control. Don't waste your money paying for adaptive cruise control.
II have owned the van for 3 months and was at the point off either replacing the cruise control with a after market version or selling the van Show details

Don't buy

I use this car for my business and besides the ad blue being a pain just found out my rotors need to be replaced at 42,000 kms $2,500 later not worth it. Asked Ford how long the new ones will last and said about the same amount of time. Show details

Great van, terrible technology

10,000 km 12 moinths

Van and functional stuff is great

Centre console is straight out of the *early* 2000s

I'm 185cm, and can't reach the radio etc from the driving position

SYNC technology

SatNav is useless (prompts -after- the turn in city situtions) - now using phone and TomTom

Voice control is laughable (but it doen't understand laughs or swearing)

Radio is dangerous to use while driving (illogical controls)

Reverse camera cuts out if a call comes in!

Don't park on a slope - rear-up with <20% tank. Won't start!

There's much more - I wouldn't buy another one until it's fixed.

Not Happy Ford

I have enjoyed the two years of owning this vehicle. But at 70,000km, the clutch has gone including gear box. Ford Customer Fleet Care has not been helpful at all. I've been without my vehicle for 5 weeks and still waiting on parts. And with this being my work vehicle which I work out of every day, it becomes Very disturbing. I know we live in North Queensland but we do have Daily Air Freight Services. I would not recommend a Ford due to lack of service from Customer Care plus the fact of it's age and such major problems at such low Km.

Disappointed With Gearbox

Gear selection problems vehicle into dealer Launceston TAS 5 days ago, feedback non existent on diagnosis, had to follow and chase them continuously. 5 days no parts ordered no decision made from ford Australia on warranty claim. Disappointed as this is a front line vehicle for our company. Come on dealer and Ford Australia get your act together. Simply not good enough!

Hi I have a Ford Transit late 2019 VO LWB.
Have just had to replace the injectors after just 65000k. My local mechanic performed the job but using his latest and greatest 'Snap On' coding tool can not find Ford Transit to be able to code the new injectors.
He has all the other Fords at his fingertips but no Transit.
My question is..... Do I need to code them in this model ?
I have rang Ford dealerships and they won't disclose any information until i book it in with a ford dealer which is booked out 2 months ahead.
Thanks Johno
