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