  1. Power Port Question

    Agree completely. A booster pack is a must for a camper. Every time someone needs a jump start at the camp site, I've been the receiving end myself.
  2. Lately the desktop format site has been pretty mych unusable on ipad. Is there a link or a setting to default to a mobile layout?
  3. Power Port Question

    It's not specifically a European thing. All my Connects have 12V sockets on at all times but my European built Toyotas and Hondas do not.
  4. Wheel Size Question

    I don't have any besides factory steelies. Funnily enough I have just ordered 16" (can't be bothered with rough ride) Dezent TX graphite for summer tires. Factory PCD.
  5. Wheel Size Question

    M-sport Connect has 18" and these look at the limit already: http://www.m-sport.co.uk/m-sport-news/dovenby-hall/revealing-the-m-sport-ford-connect Don't change the offset as it would ruin your wheel bearings prematurely (relatively speaking). Any wheel with a matching bolt pattern and center bore will do: https://www.wheel-size.com/size/ford/transit-connect/2017/
  6. What kind of rear seats to add to 2011 cargo TC

    Seen cheap or free rear seats offered several times. In this forum as well.
  7. Heh, this has been a popular topic in Facebook :D

    The other problem was people driving an SUV with the stability of a phone booth and 70-profile tires past 70 mph. I leased the Explorer briefly in the 90's, it was nothing to write home about. My full size '93 transit was better on the highway.

  10. Fuel efficiency

    Roundabouts a very common over here. They're good up to some specific load of traffic where there's virtually no wait time and you can merge right away. For heavier load you'll need traffic lights and/or multi-level intersections. Unregulated same level intersection is only good for very light traffic. There are differences in roundabout rules in Europe - most countries work by right hand rule but in Estonia the car on the roundabout has the right of way.
  11. The tilt feature is probably designed to work in hatchbacks and sedans. It's almost impossible to clear a "wall" of the size of the van without some extra mechanism. Then again, it's quite easy to remove the bike.
  12. Who got arrested ???

    EcoBoost won't help you being dumb. He was dumb as a bag of hammers.
  13. Good-by and Good Luck

    Heh, embarrassed to have been part of one of those moderation instances Thanks for your good company and good luck with everything.

    Just saw this pin board: https://www.pinterest.com/richhand/ford-transit-connect-transformations/
  15. Greetings from Huntington Beach California

    I loved my 2006 van and like my 2012 wagon a lot. The only shortcomings I see is the "truckish" feel compared to the new body. Also missing cruise control and some weak bits such as wheel bearings, rear brakes and steering rack. Both generations look the best of vans. Haven't driven the gasoline automatic so don't know about that.
  16. Hello from St. Louis

    What a crowd here =)
  17. What's wrong with the Jetta? You're giving up a perfectly good and economical automobile just because of politics?
  18. Hello from St. Louis

    It'll be tight with a rigid bulkhead. Been there, done that. Open cabin or a cage with a door behind the passenger seat is good for that.
  19. Perhaps it was meant to be shipped to Quebec.
  20. Hmm, you have temperature display in the cluster screen top row. Want.
  21. Overhead aircraft style storage with doors

    Plenty of cheap car storage organizers available without the need of expensive and bulky overhead bins.
  22. Hood Latch

    You might want to remove the original screws and replace them with push rivets if it helps anything. Perhaps easier to remove at an angle.
  23. There was a thread with pinout somewhere here.
