The best all round car I have ever owned

published

Bought a new 280 Low Roof MWB FWD in 2012. Fitted windows all round, folding rear seat, fans & insulation & lining to rear cargo area. This is my daily driver & family wagon & work van. Very comfortable ride, handles extremely well, does NOT drive like a van. Would I buy another one? Most definitely.

Faults - the front passenger bench seat is a little too upright for real comfort
- small leak from power steering column at 60,000km and 5th gear shredded at 65,000km. Both fixed under warranty by Lane Ford, with no hassle from Ford Australia - excellent service from both parties.

Turbo problems

published

Van runs perfect until you hook up and tow it gets a gear like warning light that relates to petrol engines but its a 2.4 turbo diesel, turbo shuts down and has no power, taken to ford dealers they are useless also clutch pedal has no pressure after long drive but fine if driven short term

Don't buy get something else

published

Owned it from new 2010 model to date have had gearbox replace under warranty twice in the last 12 months rear seals replaced four times tail shaft yoke twice and still no answers from ford they have claimed it's wear and tear car has travelled 197000 k's I know that is a lot but as the car has only been used for long distance driving and carrying no load or towing I think that maybe there's a issue with the six speed manual don't your self a favour buy something else
Engine power is good for a turbo diesel

awesome

I have had my 2010 transit for 6 months and very happy with it so far. I have my own plumbing business, the transit pulls through with flying colours, it is always fully load and when it needs tow a trailer it dose it with ease. The transit has a good balance off power and fuel efficiency.
Plenty of room in cab and cargo area, a pleasure to drive.
Parts are a little expensive for a ford, a little more power would be great.

Junk.

published

Where to start? Brake rotors; twice. EGR valve, twice; water pump. I bought this van for it's carrying capacity and it can definitely take the weight I put in it...but it's just not worth the grey hair. It's one of the most unreliable vehicles I have ever owned. I used to like Fords...not anymore.
Load capacity. It has a barn doors option. It has very good rear visibility. Good fuel economy on the diesel.
Unreliable. It's a money pit. The standard jack included with my transit, won't lift the car high enough to change the tyre.

i have 375000 klm on my 06 transit regular service never had a problem i am sure that a jap van would have died by now as i regularly have 1.5 ton in the back and another 1 ton on the trailer i have towed a xr Fairmont to every state in Australia and never broke down , i bet a smaller van would do that , i have been very happy with the van my wife drives it as well and loves it , keep up the good work ford thanks for a great van
turbo good view from the drivers seat , easy to park great tow car turbo diesel stand in the back with out bending over
bumpers should have been color coded , long way up to the drivers seat and i am 6 foot tall

I have a 2008 Transit Winnebago and reckon it is fantastic. I fitted a Steinbauer tuning chip... overpriced but made the 2.4 motor climb hills with less gear changes.
