I have an ordinary connect (12 plate) it's my 2nd one, never really had too much bother with em,my first one was a 53 plate from new and put 186k on it without too much bother.

I have an 06 normal cab and I can't fault it, worst thing I can think of is it isn't as economical as I would like, possibly low 30,s

that's way off the mark they claim 50 ish mpg so would expect mid 40 mpg any other owners got mpg figures

low 30's pretty bad that mate............i'd be wanting a bit more than that from a vehicle, as I get through a fair bit of mileage..........

The new ones probably are near the 50 mark, I was very disappointed with mine when I got it on the mpg, for a small van it uses a fair drop of fuel, same as my ranger almost, but, it is always loaded, and my lads don't hang around, I think with less load and careful driving you could improve it a little, but certainly no where near 50, I doubt you would get 40 if I am honest, been a while since I bothered to work it out though.
