2016 Ford Transit Van base
I am a furniture maker, and put a lot of miles transporting materials and furniture, going to craft shows, etc. I love the Ford Transit (2015) except for one big issue. My transmission started rumbling under load in 6th gear. Ford tells me that this is normal. It is not normal. It is loud and can last 10-15 seconds, with vibration. It started for me at around 60,000. I spoke to a transmission mechanic who owns an F-150, and it started for him around 100 miles! Ford says it will not cause transmission failure, and that may be. And it is very annoying. It is the 6th gear clutches. I think Ford has no idea how to fix it, so says it is not a problem. Their lack of responsiveness give bad taste about Ford.
