2010 Ford Transit Connect Warranty

Ford backs the Transit Connect with a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. This is comparable to the warranty of the Ford E-Series, but the Chevy Express and the Chevy HHR offer longer powertrain warranties. While the Transit Connect is a new model in the United States, it's been sold in Europe for years. That means that some of the risks of buying a new model with untested reliability don't necessarily apply to buying the Transit Connect.

  • "It's a stout runabout and a testament to Ford's engineering abilities." -- Autoblog
