Transportation ~ 2016 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT, Ordered, 02/01

A hope fulfilled…

Ford Transit Connect XLT Photo2.pngI am on schedule. My target was 1st Quarter 2016. Hey it has been since September 01, 2015 when my Ford Windstar died after 17 years. Now, I have approximately 5 months to wait for delivery–that’s JULY! That will require lots more walking & biking, and some dependence on others.

Thanks to Olivia for her help.

Thanks to Mario Blackwell & especially Jermaine Reed, both of Crown Ford of Fayetteville, North Carolina, for placing the order today for my replacement van.

  2. I tried since Tuesday, 02/02 to discuss [with Mr. Reed] replacing the entertainment order with the Ford MyTouch System. It was not until this morning, Friday, 02/05, that I resolved with Mr. Mario Blackwell. The order is to be modified.

    RE: Telephone discussion with Mr. Mario Blackwell, Friday, 02/05/2016, @ 9:50 am, regarding changing the entertainment system of my order from Single CD W/Sync/Rear Camera to SYNC®
    with MyFord Touch® w/backup Camera, with the hope that Sync 3 is available for the Transit Connect Cargo Van by the time my van is built.

    I, James A. Artis authorize the change, as discussed with Mr. Blackwell, and described above. I understand that by modifying my order, I will incur addition cost [~$810] for the MyFord Touch® System. That cost will be included in the MSRP when the vehicle is delivered.

    Again, my desire/hope is for Sync 3 in my van. Were possible, please add that as a comment or remark to the order.


    James A Artis

    Thank you Mario to you and the Crown Staff for this modification. I deeply appreciate it and you!
