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
The motor is very quiet & full of power.Floor D rings are great.Lower rear windows are a big help.Back doors w/ open locking magnets are neat. Brakes are very strong. Std mirrors are good. Fuel mpg great. Transmission tap brakes & feel the automatic down shift, very nice. Tall cargo area, great.
Increase the # of wiper speeds. Make simpler the lock controls on the dash. Add back up warning beep inside the cabin. Have a full auto open & close intergraded in the window control botton. Larger fuel tank, to 45 gallons. Needs a built in ramp in the rear. Stock tires need more useable miles.
