Who has the most miles on their Transit with the 3.7L V6 and would you buy again? ...

How has it treated you? Is the power and acceleration adequate? I'll be lightly loaded most of the time with occasional heavier payloads, any regrets?

I have just under 12K on mine. The 3.7L is plenty powerful enough to move my cargo. Payload ranges from 350 lb to over 4000 lb on occasions. I kinda wish I had the 4.10 rear axle, but I like the transmission a lot. I'm sure the Diesel and EcoBoost are a hoot to drive, but I don't consider 275 hp to be slouchy. The engine needs more revs than the others, but the powerband is quite flexible. With the kind of cargo I haul, much more power would just throw stuff all over the truck.
The few times I have weighed my van it was between 8400-9600 lbs, and it never made me feel inadequate for the job. Granted I have to corner quite a bit slower, but acceleration up a 6% grade with 4000 lbs in the back was possible.
