just hit 40k miles
I'm a professional siding, window, door, etc installer. I purchased 2015 Ford transit 250 for my business, to get to work and haul my 5 by 10 trailer I use for picking up windows. My 1st mistake was installing a roof rack that is mounted directly to mounting points. 2 on one side and 2 on the other. after I loaded my pumpjacks and poles on it and drove for couple days, the rafters that support the roof rack got completely ripped out of their welds!!!!! I had to put piecesome of wood between the rafters and the cargo bins to support them!!! other major thing is that gas door. the hinges broke when I accidentally leaned against the fuel door when I was parked in a tight spot and it was inconvenient to get inside. they cannot be repaired, at least in any relatively easy way. only good thing is fuel economy. in snow it's impossible to drive. power is not that good (3.7 liter, 280 horsepower) I'd say it's more like 180 horsepower. I guess someone made a lot of money designingredients that fuel door. that engineer is just idiot I'd say. I hope this van holds much better mechanically.
