  1. Still liking my 2018. It's a 3 year lease, so the end is near. I'm going to order a 2021.

    2019 transit connect - no backup sound?

    If ordering, the salesman should remind that this is an option. I've heard others complain about this on other Ford vehicles, including my brother that ordered a Fusion a few years ago and was very disappointed when he found out there were no backup sensors. He ordered the camera and just figured it would also beep.

    Glutton for punishment

    My 2018 Titanium has one touch windows. When you say Global, does that mean all at once? How do I do this? Thanks,
  5. Hope you find one, I love my Race Red! I still get many compliments. I have a friend that ordered one on November 18th, he's getting it at the end of this month, so 2 1/2 months, not bad. They are moving production to Mexico for 2021 model year, should be much quicker to get one then.
  6. Thanks for the info. Yes, I also noticed if I shut the radio off before shutting the vehicle off it works as you say. Well, I guess I'm not alone, a bug in the system, but minor. Thanks
  7. I have a 2018 Titanium built in the fall of 2017 and delivered in March 2018. It came with Sync 3 v.2.3. And an older Nav. Map version from 2015. I noticed online there was an updated Map version of 2018. It let me download it. I put it on a USB with all the proper files. When I stuck it in it said I could not update the map until Sync was updated to Sync 3 v3.0. I thought, no problem I'll do that too. Well, the web site said v3.0 was not available for my vehicle. I called Ford and they confirmed the same thing. They even said they were not sure if it would ever be available! So, nice, stuck with old 2015 maps! I decided to check around the internet and found a download from Sync 3 v2.3 to v3.0. I performed the update and then proceeded to upgrade my maps to 2018. All is working well except for one thing. Say for instance I'm listening to Sirius radio. I shut the vehicle off. Next time I get in and start the vehicle I'm on an AM station. Kind of weird. Maybe I should disconnect the battery and let it reset? This is minor to me though as everything else works as it should.
  8. I use an ArkPak 730 with my Battle Born 100Ah 12V LiFePO4 Deep Cycle Battery. It works great, but not inexpensive.
  9. I thinking of replacing my stock TC battery with a  Duracell Group 48 (H6) AGM battery to power my 12v compressor fridge and Maxx fan when camping. How long can you run your fridge before you need to run the vehicle to recharge the battery?

  10. The Sam's Club Duracell Group 48 (H6) AGM battery is like the original, just slightly bigger, but still fits and can still use the original top bracket. The posts are exactly in the same place as the original. If I remember, pulling the air cleaner and bellows assembly will give access to removing the battery.

    GOT IT!!!

    I swapped my headlight bulbs with HIKARI LED Headlight Bulb Conversion Kit -H11 back in May 2018. I still like them, although they are not perfect. I had to re-aim the lights down, not a big deal. They are much brighter and are white instead of the dim yellow stock bulbs. There's no distinct cutoff line like HID's, but I still like them much more than stock bulbs. I think they were about $69. on Amazon.
  12. I have a new Ford Escape with Adaptive Cruise Control and Stop-N-Go. The 2019 TC works exactly the same, which is great! My co-worker at Ford has tested one and said it works just like the other Ford vehicles.
  13. Thought I'd give you guys an update on the AGM battery in my TC (bought at Sam's Club). I've been using it in the TC for a year now. Currently on a month long trip in Florida and using the fridge 24/7. All is good. Great vehicle, love it! I will buy another one when the time comes.

    To combat road noise

    Steven, try rotating the tires front to back to see if the noise stays exactly the same. If it changes, probably tires, if not get it checked out. Tom
