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

Seat issues detract from a great ride.
I recently purchased a 2020 Ford Transit Custom sport LWB Crew Van. The reviews were very positive and its a great looking van. Plenty of Tech, great power and cruising capability let down by a very poorly designed Drivers seat. So bad , and at a cost of around 7k after 500 Kms and with a very sore back, I traded the van back to Ford. A hugely disappointing experience. Although the seat has multiple adjustments I found it impossible to find a sweet spot. I think maybe associated with , heating, airbags, a lumbar support, compromising the config...uration of the seat. I was offered a very short test drive and frankly was sucked in by the look of the vehicle. Assumed it must be ok even though I immediately experienced discomfort with the seat. So I suggest at least a half hour test drive before committing to one.

Non computerised pump
You can successfully fit a non computerised diesel pump to these vehicles using a cable and no security lock out. The system works well and uses most of the original parts apart from the actual pump.- and the experts said it could never be done.
Purchased in October 2015 for $12,000.00.
Questions & Answers
Hello. Does anyone know much about the locking system on a 2006 v j transit camper van?
Nup. But after reading all the endless expensive repair bills on ford transit vans theres no way lm buying one now
Well after sorting out the couple of little problems known with these models. I'm now very happy to report, the ol Transhit is running sweet, and I'm pretty happy at the moment....
What is the difference between a fa and a vm chassis?
to be honest I do not know ! my experience is with the new Transit custom long wheel base, great looking, goes well, the drivers seat did not suit me to the point with 500kms on the clock I traded it back to Ford, not a cheap experience !!
