2003 Dodge Sprinter Cargo Van 2500 High Ceiling 140 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Great space, great concept, but problems, problems, problems. Not worth the money. Any fuel savings have been dwarfed by maintainence costs. Lost motor to timing chain failure at 128000 miles. Not a happy camper.

Review

i would havve given the Sprinter a much higher rating if it wasn't for a couple of things. 1: The steering wheel doesn't tilt and so I have to sit closer (which I dislike) to the steering wheel in order to be somewhat comfortable. I drive for a living and so I spend several hours a day in my Sprinter. 2: Finding out after I bought it that I cannot tow a horse trailer. I raise horses and it would have been nice to know that it has a 5000lb towing max. 3: Not being able to idle the engine. But there is still alot I like such as oil changes every 10,000mi and the ease of handling a van of this size.


Favorite Features

The extra height, fuel mileage is AWESOME. The ability to control the level setting on the headlights. Amber dashlights. Visibilty great.


Suggested Improvements

Tilt steering. Be able to tow horse trailers. Better stereo. Front wheel drive.

Review

I bought this vehicle for work. I avg 240 miles a day, roughly 10 hours driving time. Most stop and go. This vehicle is fantastic!! Has 373 cuft of cargo space, gets an avg of 20.7 mpg. Drives better than most cars. Maintenance is a piece of cake. Oil change every 10,000. I put in new brake pads every 25-30,000, about the same for tires. Starts every morning, no rattles and shakes. I do drive on quite a few "goat paths" , where my 2000 Dodge Ramvan rattled apart. I would definetly buy another when this one dies. In about 300,000!!! , try that with a gas engine. Plenty of power even when slightly overloaded. No problem keepin up with traffic on the highway.


Favorite Features

Visibilty is fantastic. Steering is almost as good as my Mazda Miata. The ergonomics are great, can drive all day and not be fatigued. The women luv this truck, they comment how "sexy and european it looks" .


Suggested Improvements

Make it in 4wd or front wheel drive. Doesn't like the snow, but then again what van does!!! Could use a better stereo system than what comes stock.
