MaineTC posted a topic in InteriorLooking to buy a complete 2nd row seat set for a 2013 Transit Connect. Ideally looking for new seats, will pay shipping.
I need to replace my antenna base on my 2013 Ford Fiesta. The antenna snapped off and the bolt is sheared off in the base. It cannot be drilled out. I do not want to pay the garage to do the work that I am sure I can do myself but I am looking for some helpful instructions. Anybody know where to find the "how to" instructions on this? Thanks in advance for your help!
Hello, I have been looking at the Connect since it has been available here. I was going to wait to order (building up $s) until I found the new 2014 coming out, which changes the concept. So now I plan to order the 2013 version. I have specific questions that I cannot find answers to. Electric heated windsheild - exactly what is this? From information I have gleaned, this is a separate layer in the windshield that electrically heats the window. I found posting that this is not a good option - replacements are impossible to find, layers separate, looks foggy inititally. But hten it is good because it acts sort of a heat shield for sunlight - does any body have details and experience. Modified wiring harness - exactly what is this. Information I find is misleading - Is this the "taxi" option that puts a hole in the roof, or is it additional wires between under hood and interior, or both. Brocure says this is avilable for all models (not just taxi) Other information - what is a good start on pricing haggling? I know, being import, there probably is not a high mark-up, and being a nich vehicle, there does not seem to be incentives for ordering. p.s. why i dislike 2014 - no information on it yet (gargo area, dimensions) - time is running out. lower heiight. looks chsanged to sell more to public likes (suv look) Thanks for any input.

Transit Connect Guide posted a topic in Articles, News & ReviewsAll-New Ford Transit Connect Delivers Unmatched Load-Carrying Ability, Lower Fuel Costs and Dynamic New Looks All-new Transit Connect makes global public debut at IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, Germany; developed under the One Ford product strategy for sale in Europe, North America and other worldwide markets Stylish next generation new model provides compact van buyers with best-in-class load carrying ability, outstanding fuel economy and total dependability – adding up to best-in-class cost of ownership Hard-working attitude is combined with smart features and technology including car-like cockpit, Active City Stop and Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance Ford Transit Connect Forum – The stylish all-new Ford Transit Connect sets new standards for load-carrying ability, cost of ownership and dependability in the compact van segment, and will extend the success of the current model. Making its global public debut at the Hanover IAA Commercial Vehicle Show, the Transit Connect forms part of a new generation of global Transit vans, developed under the One Ford product strategy for sale in Europe, North America and other worldwide markets. With its dynamic new looks, innovative load-carrying features and advanced technologies – including the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, Active City Stop and Ford SNYC – the all-new Transit Connect will provide van customers with a hard-working and desirable new vehicle. “This is a great-looking, hard-working new van, which will be a perfect fit for a wide range of businesses,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president Product Development, Ford of Europe. “We’ve taken the toughness and dependability of the current model, and added some smart new loadspace features, much-improved fuel efficiency, and a dynamic new style inside and out. We’re confident the all-new Transit Connect will bring new customers to the Ford brand.” Stylish, capable and versatile Showcasing Ford’s latest design language, the all-new Transit Connect has a dynamic and modern appearance, from the signature trapezoidal grille and slim, technical headlamps at the front, through the powerful rising shoulder line, to the distinctive vertical tail lamps at the rear. The stylish body is available in short-wheelbase (SWB) and long-wheelbase (LWB) versions, offering a spacious and practical load area with total volume of 2.9 m3 and 3.6 m3 (SAE) respectively. Customers can choose between Van, Double-Cab-in-Van and Kombi derivatives, to suit their exact business requirements. Smart design and engineering ensure the new Transit Connect delivers best-in-class load carrying ability. Features including a load-through hatch in the bulkhead and fold-flat passenger seat enable long loads up to 3.0 m (SWB) and 3.5 m (LWB) to be safely carried in the vehicle. Additional new features to boost everyday productivity include a dual passenger seat, so that van models can now carry three people in the cab. For Kombi and Double-Cab-in-Van models, maximum seating capacity is five (SWB) or seven (LWB) people; versatile rear seating and a movable mesh bulkhead allow the load area to be configured as required. In addition, the LWB model features a unique fold-flat seat capability that optimises the loadspace from front passenger space rearwards, and enables loads up to 3 m long to be carried. The new model has a stylish cockpit with car-like design and craftsmanship, a range of smart stowage solutions, and the latest Ford driver assistance features and interior technologies. Transit Connect is the first in its class to offer Active City Stop, and features the Ford SYNC voice-activated, in-car connectivity system with Emergency Assistance. Class-leading fuel economy and dependability Minimising overall cost-of-ownership was a high priority throughout the vehicle design and development, and the all-new Transit Connect targets best-in-class fuel economy, along with minimised maintenance and repair costs with extended service intervals. The powertrain line-up in Europe includes the highly-efficient 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel with a choice of 75, 95 and 115 PS versions, and the remarkable new 100 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine – 2012 “International Engine of the Year”, plus a version of the acclaimed 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine available with a six-speed automatic transmission. The latest low-CO2 Ford ECOnetic Technologies help to minimise fuel consumption, including Auto-Start-Stop available on both diesel and petrol models. A range of efficient petrol engines with automatic transmission will be made available in the U.S. to meet local market needs. Since its 2002 launch, the Transit Connect has established a reputation for toughness and reliability. The new model has been engineered to extend this tradition of class-leading dependability, using customer feedback from around the globe to ensure that toughness and durability are designed in from the start. Unlike many rivals which are tested like passenger cars, the vehicle has been subjected to Ford’s ultra-stringent commercial vehicle testing and durability standards, covering millions of miles of arduous testing in laboratories, at proving grounds and on customer fleets. Next-generation global platform The all-new Transit Connect is based on a global platform that is derived from the state-of-the-art C-segment platform shared by models like the Focus and Kuga/Escape. Innovative technologies include an advanced Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) system featuring Load Adaptive Control, which adjusts the operation of the ESP stability systems to take account of variations in vehicle load, so the systems remain fully effective whether the vehicle is partially or fully laden. The vehicle was engineered in Ford’s commercial vehicle development centre in Europe – building on decades of experience developing market-leading Transit models – supported by the company’s full global product development resources. During development, the vehicle was carefully tailored to the different needs of customers around the world, including unique features and powertrains to meet local market requirements. In Europe, deliveries of the all-new Transit Connect are due to start by the end of 2013. In North America, the all-new Transit Connect is scheduled to go on sale by the fourth quarter of 2013.
