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


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.

Review

Purchased my Aspen in September 2008. So far it has been enjoyable to drive. The best thing about the Aspen is that it is a functional car. I have the second row bench seating (for child's seat). Also, the third row folding down and stowing is a nice option. Other similar size vehicles either don't have a third row or you have to physically remove the seats and store them somewhere else. I got the limited signature series(J pkg) with the 5.7 L Hemi. Gas mileage was to be expected about 14 - 15 mpg. The interior is great with MyGig, Navigation, DVD player and rear camera. To purchase the same vehicle from another manufacturer would probably have cost me $10K more. Good car overall.


Best Features

MyGig system with Navigation, Sirius radio, DVD player, remote starter and rear camera.


Worst Features

Little more leg room for second row passengers. Sunroof retract all the way.

Review

So nice to drive and not pass your car a trillion times on the road. What an expensive looking car. Never go anywhere without receiving a compliment. Very roomy but not too big. A great package deal of optional features. Chrysler don't advertise it very much. But it will become popular by sight when it arrives in person any place. Many people stated they heard about it but never saw it before.


Best Features

Power liftgate and touch screen Alpine radio. Also love having the ability to download music and videos


Worst Features

Miss not havong onstar operator like I had on gm SUV
