Darn. Nearest location to me is 200 miles away. And they only list the Nissan NV as a 'maybe'.

Thanks. I believe they were going to be getting in low roof 15-passenger Wagons also, as VanMan reported in November:

Enterprise rent-a-car renting Transits

but the Enterprise site does not show any Wagons that I can find, either in the car rental section, or in the cargo van area.

2015 XLT 150 Wagon, 3.5EB/3.31LS, 130" WB, low roof, 8-passenger, full trailer tow incl. brake controller, ordered 12/14, delivered 4/20.

Saw a couple of medium roof cargo vans all painted up as U-Haul vans headed toward Santa Rosa Ca. on flat bed truck last Tuesday.

They have had low roof lwb wagons and cargo Transits since nov-2014 in my area, they also have low roof pro-master cargos also (in my area) (Enteprise) as shown in the photo
May rent a pro-master just because I "bash" them so much, so I can say "yes, they are a total piece of SH*T)
owners of pro-masters are now reporting water in the interior and with salt on the roads, it wount be long before they are rusting like the sprinters they replaced

We have had a lot of rain in Northern Ca. and I have spent a lot of time inside of cargo vans at the dealer. Guess what: the Transits leak water through the fasteners that hold on the lower plastic body panel on the sides. Ford copied the Sprinter with the same results.

Geeeez... That's really disheartening. Surely they must have performed tests, at *least* at the development/prototyping stage that looks for that. I know the last Chevy I bought was subjected to a severe water intrusion test after assembly to check for leaks.

Lets just hope that the sheet metal was properly protected so that the moisture won't make our Transits look like Sprinters do after only a few years. My worst corrosion on the '08 Sprinter was just under those panels.......
