Bought this baby used with 58,000 on it with no indication it had ever been worked on for major problems. Drove it from CA to MO twice and got between 13 and 17 mpg from the 318cc engine. Have replaced water pump, front wheel bearings, and spark plugs in the 20,000 miles I put on it. I have one concern with a noise from the tranny on backing up. This noise started after the van was frozen shut for several days during the ice storm in Springfield and the -5 degrees temps. This is the most comfortable ride I have ever owned although my Cadillac Biarritz was a close second.

Good hauling capacity, got the 6 way adjustible seats which are the cat's pajamas, used mostly n the summer, fishtails on the slightest ice. Smooth riding for such a big vehicle. Would have liked the 3500 if I knew about the lower cargo capacity

Extended roof with T.V. and Video
Player; Plush Captains Chairs (4); Mood
lighting; fold down rear bench;
However, chairs don't rotate :( Plenty
of hauling room and comfort for
passengers and 'CAPTAIN'.

I bought this 1999 Dodge 3500 extended
cargo van brand new. This was after
owning three other dodge vans, which I
was very happy with. The older vans
were built much stronger and lasted
much longer between repairs. This van
has cost me more time and money than
it's worth. After just two years I had
to sink over $1,700. for the front end
to be rebuilt, The rotors were
replaced twice at the cost of
over$700., the fuel pump was also
replaced, the oxygen sensors were
replaced(by myself) for a cost of
$179.00 for two,the sensor in the rear
that controls the speedometer was
replaced, etc.Today I was told that
the heads need replacing, the fuel
pump, the fuel jets,$3,600!!!.. Dodge?
