2013 Ford Transit Connect Wagon XLT Premium Review
It Suits The Commercial Market Well. — My wife wanted this vehicle for 2 years and I declined to purchase it due to less than stellar reviews. I finally purchased the 2013 XLT Premium wagon in Mars Red, [very rare], for her and she has never been happier with any vehicle I ever bought for her. I feel this Transit Connect was the right vehicle at the right time. The 2014 Transit Connect will NOT appeal to the small commercial vehicle market as the 2010 thru 2013 has. Most complaints were of poor acceleration and top speed. Don't you know, business owners want to limit workers driving speed and also have a vehicle that stands out from the crowd for advertising. This one does both.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Very manuverable, comfortable but not one you will fall asleep in, very economical, fun to drive, cheap to own, keeps up with freeway traffic adequately
Cons: Slow acceleration, somewhat noisy but not excessive, rear seats are for kids only
