What’s the most expensive repair you’ve had done on your tc?
I’ve got an extended service plan on a 2016 transit connect that’s good until 2024 or 40k more miles. I could get a refund of $1700 if I cancel now and am considering it since it’s been running great.
Does anyone happen to know or have a vague idea of how much the second row seats way? I'm wondering in particular about the 2/3 bench (larger 2 person seat). I'm trying to get a ballpark idea, plus or minus 20 pounds.
Very interesting sKiZo. I am hoping for a swing to the side rack though to clear the bikes totally out of the way when the doors open.
I've also thought about somehow building something that attaches to the doors directly, as they already do the swinging motion I want, but I'm not sure if the hinges would hold up to that and kinda worried about modifying the door...
It can be done. You need a dyno. A custom tune can be uploaded. Just like any other car. Change the fuel mapping for air / fuel ratio. Change the shift points and shift firmness. Advance or retard spark.
$1200 and you won't notice a thing. The dyno may measure a 1 - 3 horsepower increase. You could get another ft lbs of torque. But in the real world, you are not winning any races. You won't even feel the difference accelerating a freeway onramp to merge into traffic flow.
Thought I’d give an update. I got a 2013! The 9’6” board actually does fit in the car if you take the passenger headrest off. Definitely need to tie it so it doesn’t fly forward though. Just using a bungee cord for now.
Thought I’d come back and update my own post. I got a 2013 connect! And YES, a longboard can fit inside, but only if you take the passenger headrest off. That can be done by poking a small key or anything pointy into the small button of the base of the headrest prong that is closest to the door.
@Banjeed That is such a good idea! I'm using a twin foam mattress from Ikea and it leaves really big and annoying gaps, especially by the doors. I've woken up out of the mattress several times. I'm definitely going to try your approach. Could you share a photo of how you store it while folded? I'm imagining the "winged" front part probably doesn't fit in the trunk, does it?
