Poor Engine & Transmission, do not buy!
By Rich in CT on 09/12/10 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2008 Dodge Sprinter Cargo 3500 170 WB 3dr Ext Van (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

I know three people who have the same model as I do. We have replaced the turbo resonator 4 times (3 in warranty). Two years into the purchase and we are hit with a $10,000 transmission bill. Six months later, $3,000 for air conditioning problems. All three friends have also replaced the transmission and have had turbo issues. I would never buy this brand vehicle again.

Awesome Van

2008 Dodge Sprinter Cargo 2500 144 WB 3dr Van (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

I was very hesitant about buying this van. It is my 1st import or diesel vehicle. Bought this vehicle w/650 miles, 144" & std roof. Dealer titled previously. Drove it home on a hwy (150miles) @ ~15F and got 19.7mpg (speed 65mph). Drove it on another hwy trip (300miles) @ ~30F and got 23mpg (speed 55-65mph). No crankcase oil used so far @ 1400miles. Starts unbelievably fast and w/o assist @ 0F (no cords for block heaters, etc. - only 1 battery). No exhaust fumes (completely clear - even in the winter from a cold start), quiet, economical and fast. This diesel van is not like the domestics out there. Some great minds must have come together to build this vehicle. Nice vehicle.

Sprinter 2500-144 CRD-2008

2008 Dodge Sprinter Cargo 2500 144 WB 3dr Van (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

This German Diesel van is one of the finest truck that I have ever driven. Fuel milage is 22 mpg regularly. The hyway handling is more like a car that a truck. In city the 144 is never hard to get through stop & go traffic. The seats don't look like much but w/ many adjustment at the finger tip it is easy to get relocated. Removed the metal divider behind the driver & passenger seats. Now moving to the back doesn't require stopping & going outside to open the side door. Hang a plastic clear curtain behind the seats & the A/C will not work so hard to keep the front cold. Do a lot of cross country driving & the tank range is plenty but could be larger. Stock tires don't get over 30k

Great Van

Review

This is an excellent sized van. We bought it as a new leftover for well under invoice. The space and carrying capacity is unrivaled in this class. The seats are quite comfortable and although this is a work van, it can be easily forgotten and feel like we are drving an RV. Prices can be had in the high 20's with this economy.

Review

How can you not like a ten foot tall van that carries 3000lbs and still gets 18 MPG when I run it at the top speed of 81 MPH. I can even get 20 MPG if I don't exceed 65 MPH!

Review

This van had 35 miles when bought new, Had a very bad vibration, Had the dealer to rotate & balance all tires, assuming its fixed, took it home vibration ia alot worse. took to the dealer again, again, and again. finally they changed front tires only and force balance , no luck. after 1 month back and forth , the dealer agreed on changing all tires , vibration is gone about 85% .also had power steering leak they had the rack replaced, fixed. fuel gauge gets stock, doesn't read correct, have to get it fixed. alligment had to be done also when r&r. rack. Hopefully nothing else goes wrong. Drove 5 sprinters they all have this vibration also rack is a comon proplem. Don't buy it if vibra.noticed

2008 Sprinter Diesel Cargo 144 WB

2008 Dodge Sprinter Cargo 2500 144 WB 3dr Van (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

Have driven 6,000 combination miles so far,worst mpg is 19 best is 22. Appears with my rear end ratios I will be getting better in town mpg than hwy at 70. I'm carrying 1600 lbs. constantly as cargo in form of boxes. This van is a dream to drive. My history has been 5 Ford Vans, and this is by far a cut above. Turning radius is much tighter than any other van I know of. Ability to lock doors after exiting appears to be non-existent, unless using the fob. This does,of course, prevent any lock-outs I presume. My experience so far has been above my expectations. Anyone willing to make the jump-up on the front end to purchase one, will be justified after a few miles under ones belt
