You won't find any definitive reliability review of the Ford Transit Crew Van. The fact that the Passenger and Cargo variants are still suffering recalls, seven in 2022 in the case of the former, doesn't bode well, though. The warranty plan is also very average for the segment. The bumper-to-bumper warranty is valid for three years/36,00 miles, and the powertrain and roadside assistance plans cover five years/60,000 miles.
