Great to see Ford's quality control still up there with the best!
Is there a new Transit out there that isn't a "Custom" model.....?

Yep there is the larger one, the 'Custom' used to be a trim level, but now it's a model in its own right. Something similar to a VW transporter rather than the full size Transit that's now just to compete with Sprinters etc.

The trouble with Fords is they always seem to launch new stuff too early then develop it when they start getting customer feedback. The year 2000 transit was terrible, early Puma engines in them were the worst, but by the time they facelifted it and converted the engine to TDCI it was pretty decent. The current new Transits use the new 'Panther' engine, which replaced the Puma, my guess is it'll be the usual Ford thing and they'll get that sorted in the first few years. The 'Puma' engine was also used by PSA in the Relay/Boxer, I don't know if they've switched the Relay/Boxer over to the new 'Panther' unit.
