    Greetings,

    Ive reviewed many threads and cannot get a straight answer about Ford Transit Connects eligibility in the Orlando market. Some markets, yes, some no but nothing about Orlando specific. I'm getting ready to purchase a vehicle, but will not rely on Uber alone to make money with it. The Transit Connects versatility seems like a logical choice for a variety of services, including eventual conversion to accoodate wheelchairs.
    Someone out here has to know. Please help!

    Thank you!

    Yeah, 2012s and 13s had really bad ******s but they did fix most of the issues. The biggest issue I see with the transmissions from '14s on is blowing seals in uneven terrain areas of the country. Dont have to worry about that in Orlando, but I'm getting a bumper to bumper warranty from Mullinax Ford. If I can get an answer that is lol. Uber support gave me a very vague endorsement via email, but I want them to be specific with a yes. I'm going to use it to sub out to local couriers and most minivans cant handle a pallet or two.
