I'm in the quest for a diesel to replace my 2009 VWTDI. My wife wants: a Ford (because it's the only dealer in town) A minivan for ease of parking with plenty of room for shopping (she had a Dodge Caravan mini, circa 1996 and loved it) An automatic. We were about to buy a 2017/2018 SWB Transit Connect when I read about the 2019 Transit Connect standard/SWB coming standard with a diesel. I was very happy when I read about that. I HAD a 1978 VW Diesel Rabbit, loved it got up to 65MPG on trips running light. I've GOT a 1988 Ford F350 diesel conversion van, a 2002 F350 dually diesel and two diesel Kubota tractors so I like the diesel powerplant.. I'm primarily here for hints and tips on the rest of the vehicle.
Hey all! I am wondering if anyone has ever had a transit shipped over seas from Europe? They have really nice diesel Transits there that are significantly cheaper than Transits here in the states, so much cheaper that it seems it would be still be cheaper to buy one from somewhere in the UK, have it modified to meet US standards, and shipped over seas than to buy one here in the states. AND as a bonus, the Transit would last much longer and be better quality. Has anyone else looked into this or done this?
