While Cleaning The Interior Of The Vehicle, I Noticed That The Rear Split Bench Seat Would Not Lock Onto The Floor Mounting Points After I Had Folded It Up To Clean Beneath It And Attempted To Return It To It’s Original Position. The Rear Seats Are Now Secured Only By The Two Shoulder Level Latches On The Sides Of The Vehicle. While Inspecting The Mechanism It Appears That Two Of The Three Latch Mechanisms Have Missing Or Broken Return Springs. This Worries Me Because I Mount My Five Year Old Sons Car Seat To This Bench Seat. *tr

As I’m Driving Home, I Start To Smell An Unusual Odor. I Get Home , Pull In Drive, Turn Off Transit And Start Unloading Groceries. This Is When I Notice Smoke Coming From The Dashboard. I Continue To Unload While I Keep An Eye On The Smoke. It Worsens And I Realize It Was On Fire And By Now There Were Orange Drops Of Fire Falling To The Floor. I Yell For My Neighbor Who Uses Our Fire Extinguishers On Site To Try And Put Out The Fire. We Had To Unhook The Battery Cables To Finally Get The Fire Out Completely. It Seemed Centralized Around The Glove Box On The Passenger Side. The Dashboard On That Side Was Completely Burned. My First Call Was To Apple ford In Red Lion, The Dealership It Was Purchased At Less Than A Year Prior. My Second Call Was To My Insurance Company. Apple Dismissed The Insurance Adjuster Saying It Was A Warranty Issue On Day 2. The Transit Has Been Sitting At Apple ford Untouched Ever Since (2 Months!!) As We Looked For Answers We Only Got Bounced Between Apple And Corporate ford With No Resolution And No Answers. Our Insurance Company Has Now Gotten Involved And Their Expert Originator Found It Was The Blower Motor Resister Part That Failed Causing The Fire. ford Is Still Uncooperative, And Changing Their Story Constantly. *tr

On A Longer Trip In My New fordtransit Connect, I Noticed Reflections Of The Outward-facing Dashboard And Grill On The Lower Half Of The Windshield. Sometimes It Was There,sometimes Not. I Checked The Owners Manual Which Mentioned “tempory Shimmering” While The Windshield Warmed Up. I Did Not Realize Until After A Crash How Much These Reflections Interfered With The Driver’s Road Visibility. The Reflections Come About When Light Shines On The Windshield From The Front Or Sides, But Not From The Back. Now That I Know What’s Going On, I See How Dangerous Such Windshields Are, And The Cars Should Be Recalled And Non-reflective Windshields Installed. *tr

As You Are Sitting In The Driver’s Seat, The Part Of The Van’s Body That Connects The Front Window To The Door Jam Is So Wide That It Blocks Your (the Driver’s) View. This Makes It Difficult And/or Impossible For The Driver To See Signage That’s On A Median And/or Oncoming Traffic Or Pedestrians. Mirrors Do Not Solve This Problem Because They Tell You What Is In Back Of You And The View That Is Blocked Is In Front Of You. I Have Gotten A Ticket For Making A U-turn In A No-u-turn Zone And Have Nearly Had An Accident (on-coming Biker) Due To This Problem.
