    Van wrapping fails, again

    Some of it are already well known bloopers, updated: https://www.sadanduseless.com/2018/01/car-ad-failures/ (this here is Finnish, clearly meant to be "REKKAPESU" (truck wash).

    100,000 miles with my 2015 Transit Connect

    I hit 100k this week so I thought I'd post an update as I don't see a lot of guys that have racked up some miles post about how they are holding up. Mine has been pretty much flawless. I am a sales rep in the motorcycle industry so I needed a vehicle that could hold a lot of catalogs and samples, plus have room in the second row for two car seats for my young boys. This van has been perfect for my needs. Mine is a Titanium and I was a little nervous about how all the extra features would hold up but everything works perfectly. I have had to reset the GPS a couple times as the map would start to show me as driving like 20' off of where I actually was but the reset works great. Otherwise I had a leak in the roof right when I got it but it was just the rubber plug for the roof rack that was not installed correctly and easily fixed. I'm on my second set of tires and I think I have about 20k more left in the General's that I put on. I also did new 18" wheels when I did the tires just to make it look a little nicer. As far as servicing I do oil changes at 5k miles with synthetic and I did have the transmission serviced with amsoil I think about 70k miles. Because I burn up the miles so fast and want it to last past 200k miles I tend to over service it, but I do all the oil changes myself so the cost is pretty negligible. I am about to replace the plugs this weekend when it warms up but otherwise not much to do to it for now. I'll probably do the transmission once a year and I have to say when I changed to synthetic tranny fluid the shifts really smoothed out. I'm on windshield #2 and already have a little crack in the new one but its not spreading so thats good. I did get tint applied to the windshield that is essentially clear but makes a huge difference on heat. I already had the side windows done when I bought it but with the amount of time I spend in the seat it makes a huge difference on hot days with the gigantic windshield these things have. Still a ton of life left in the brake pads but that's mostly due to me being on the highway the vast majority of the time. I installed a hitch and put my dirt bike on the back at times and it handles it great. It's just such a flexible vehicle and I can't imagine a better setup for my work and lifestyle. I just wish we got the diesel one so I'd get a little better mileage is all.

    Winter Tire Thread

    Nokian makes very good winter tires, The Fins know how snow tires work.

    Hello everyone, Just bought a White 2018 TC LX cargo. First Van I’ve owned. It is one versatile automobile. Always bought trucks, like the fact that everything gets locked up out of sight.

    CNG transits?

    Hello all. I joined to gather information on CNG transits. I want one to commute the SF Bay Bridge in (qualifies for white sticker) I will search the threads but if there is anything that anyone would like to share (mpgge, repairs, tank sizes, what year) I would love the info. I found a couple out of state I could travel to and buy. I currently drive a Honda gx CNG and it's awesome but because of the new laws, I need to get another CNG vehicle that has never had a HOV sticker yet. (It's COMPLICATED in CA). Does anyone have one for sale near the bay area? (Without a HOV decal) Does anyone know where they have a glut of them used? (Really used and really cheap preferably) Does anyone really want to talk me out of this? I'm here to listen. Please enlighten me. Thanks!

    What makes the 2014-Current Transit Connect such a versatile Camper van/vehicle? Let’s start with size, price, ease of driving, ease of storage, easy of cleaning in a drive through car wash, garage-able campervan, great gas mileage, low cost to insure, great daily driver, adaptability…. And they make a great TOAD / DINGHY! What? An adaptable vehicle? What’s that? For many it is a daily driver- sell or trade in a vehicle for a campervan that can be used not only to camp but for the all-around vehicle. For others, it is a Campervan that also has a large area to haul items that would not fit in the truck of a car, for others it is a Campervan that can get you to the grocery store for shopping- load the refrigerator and be able to run other errands before heading home worried about food spoiling outside of a refrigerator, how about the trip to the park- stove cookware, food and cold beverages already packed…..always ready vehicle! How about the place to take the afternoon lunch nap in the parking lot at work- even a lunch getaway is a nice getaway when a nap is in order. Hmm, tent on wheels that does not need set up, torn down or dried out as soon as you get back from a trip. How about the full timers, snowbirds, or folks with the big rigs that get parked for extended periods who pull a TOAD / DINGHY? The transit connect campervans are an excellent choice for a TOAD. Weighing under 4000LB these campervans are absolutely the most versatile TOAD / DINGHY’s available for those towing on a dolly. The only downside is they cannot be towed “4 down” for those who prefer the 4-down towing. DLM-Distribution ~ Campervans of Lake Crystal MN
