2005 Dodge Sprinter Cargo Van 2500 High Roof 140 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

This is the van for a service professional. You do not have to bend over to reach heavy tools and can stand up straight while grabbing parts. The first job I did after getting the van set with shelves and drawers involved removing an 80gallon solar storage tank. I hefted it out of the basement and stood it up straight into the van! What a back-saver. Got 27mpg one time, it averages about 23 all-around. It can carry broken concrete piled up about 3ft high in payload area.


Best Features

High roof. Handling. Gas mileage.


Worst Features

More certified sprinter mechanics for maintenance. I currently have to drive about an hour to get certified service/parts.

Review

I live in Littleton, CO and use my van for garage door service and installation. I tow a 3200# trailer with about an additional 1000# payload. My Sprinter does well. Power is consistent even at high elevations, thanks to the fact that it is turbocharged. I did have a problem that took three service visits to correct. The outside temp sensor, located behind the rear license plate was the problem for its poor engine performance. Then they changed the oil with regular oil rather than synthetic at the first service interval. I will switch to a new dealer for service. My fuel mileage is between 18 and 19.5, with 17,000 miles on the odometer. It is really fun to drive.


Best Features

Fun to drive. Tight steering, like a go-cart. Different look causes customers to take notice and ask about it.


Worst Features

Better trained service techs. An all wheel drive option would be nice, since it leaves a lot to be desired in snowy driving conditions.

Review

This van has a HUGE open cargo space, great features, similar pricing to competition but gets better gas milage and has a larger area to haul goods/machinery! This van has saved us multiple trips by taking it all- we have our solution to our once pain in the neck logistics problem!


Best Features

Great gas milage, large cargo area, and turn radius is NICE! Drives like a mini- van!


Worst Features

Interior could have more features, a little more on the seats, dash, etc. (take a Cadillac interior for instance, if you combined that with this rig it would be PERFECT!)
