2008 Chrysler Aspen Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is a fantastic vehicle for families. It has tons of interior room, rides very smooth, has gobs of power with the Hemi engine, and the MyGig system coupled with navigation and DVD is exceptional. The voice commands in this vehicle are the easiest to use of any I've seen (several).


Best Features

5.7 Hemi engine, full-time AWD, nice navigation system, remote start, memory for mirrors/pedals/radio/climate for multiple drivers.


Worst Features

Brakes always seem to take longer to stop than expected. Quality of image from rear view camera is blurry.

Review

Replaced a Tahoe with this. Solid vehicle, but its not a Tahoe. Transmission not as smooth as GM. Seat construct OK. Ride is nice, power is there, but lags due to transmission. Nice features, interior. Overall, good value for the price, especially in comparison to Tahoe.


Best Features

Body design, interior consoles.


Worst Features

Better transmission. Seats should not have 'memory' from child car seat impressions.

Review

I leased my Aspen with every available option it could come with. It is a real head turner in the HD Silver Metallic paint and 20inch rims. It would be better if the rims were chrome (Plastic Caps) but hard to notice to the untrained eye. No complaints. Only one problem, and I see nobody else in the reviews taliking about it. Between 67mph and 74mph there is a whole body vibration which the dealer and Chrysler engineering cannot fix. They have replaced every moving part outside of the engine itself including all rims, tires, driveshafts, manifolds, axles, etcetcetc. Love the truck, but they admit it is a lemon law vehicle.


Best Features

Interior, stereo, power.


Worst Features

Electric anttenae, real 20 inch chrome rims, rear window wiper on dirational,

Review

Leftover '08! Love this thing. Rides so smooth. Powerful but not too big. I've only had it a few weeks, but thrilled with it. Took a couple of long-ish trips and kids were very comfortable in the back 2 rows. Have an issue with the aluminum clad wheels clunking, but there is a TSB coming out for it.


Best Features

Everything. Sunroof is great, steering wheel controls, power liftgate, remote start, but probably the Hemi most of all.


Worst Features

yes - gas mileage, but I knew that going into it. Power lock controls on 2nd row doors, auto rear view mirror, better temp controls.

Review

This is NO Durango! 2008 Aspen Limited Signature Series 4x4 - Cool Vanilla, HEMI, 28J package- aka..LOADED! I am IN LOVE with this truck. I've had 4 back surgeries and just chucked my Toyota Sienna XLE. This is my first American car in 15 years and I'm trilled. Took a LONG ride today and it was so comfortable and quiet. Loved the heated leather seats on my low back. Even with the 20" beefy tires, it just floated. No road noise to speak of. The power lift gate is super, remote start, MyGig Alpine is fantastic, even came with 12 mos. free Sirius. Listed for $42K and paid $29,400 spankin' new. It was a steal! I can pay for a lot of gas with the money saved from Lexus or Caddy! THRILLED


Best Features

Value, value, value, Classy looks,flashy chrome, smooth ride, two tone leather, MyGig, roomy, lift gate, remote start, power adj. pedals, fit and finish is awesome, real head turner, not just another fish in the sea! Color keyed running boards, color of int. lights. HEMI power!


Worst Features

HEMI power! HA! MPG isn't great, but neither is the Lexus, Sequoia, Escalade, etc. Would suggest power antenna, pwr. passenger seat included in 28J package or std. with Sig. Series. Navigation std. with MyGig on Limited Sig. Series.
