Transit Connects.


bulmer

Question

Any of you guys drive a Transit Connect. Looking at getting one used and wondered if they're any good, for example load space, comfort, drivability, or are they driving a tractor.

i would say you cant go wrong with the connect, have driven all the french vans and they are rubbish compared to the ford. had a transit for a year and loved it. Now have a renault kangoo and loathe it! bad back, poor handling and build quality,go for the connect every time. However if u can afford a bit more the caddy is the 1!:)

I also tried to see what the differnce in price was if I kept it in a garage... !st one, remained the same. The second Came down slightly.

That would be one big garage for a Ducato.

Had an old style caddy and felt crippled after driving for any long journeys. I supposed they must have refined the driving position and cabs by now though

had one for a few weeks last year. fair amount of space in the back, and not too bad to drive either. plenty headroom in cab for paperwork etc too

What do you class as heavy on the fuel?

The ex british gas ones are well specced, even get air con in them. Only downside is the crap blue colour.

Ah, but any colour is surely better than white?

I was looking at a connect or a caddy, went for the caddy in the end due to the drive and style. both have great room in the back for the size of the van but i Prefer the look of the caddy.

I used to have an escort van and now have a Ducato. I can honestly say that whatever you have you will fill and could always use more space. Take a test drive and see if you like it first

Just makes you thimk how many non car derived vans actually get done for speeding. Every day on the motorway I'm overtook by Transits and sprinters that must be doing 90 mph.

Yeah the missus has got a caddy and i would get 1 if i had the choice but unfortunately i have a company van. The old caddys were based on a polo but the new ones are based on a sharan. much bigger cab. Hers has done 140000 miles and drives better than my kangoo that has done 40000!

Out of curiosity, I have just had a look at an internet auction Site.

Found Fiat Ducanto, went on a Comparison webiste, and did a quote out of curiosity.

Frigging Heck.
