Review of the 2004 Dodge Sprinter

  • The European-engineered Sprinter gives the full-size van buyer an unprecedented level of refinement, utility and value in a unique package. When it comes to serious towing and hauling, though, it can't keep up with V8-powered domestic vans.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Generous array of body configurations, class-leading cargo capacity, stellar fuel economy from turbodiesel engine.

  • Cons

    Lacks high-speed punch, can't get a V8 for serious towing and hauling, higher initial cost versus competitors.

  • What's New for 2004

    Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is now included on 2500-series models, and an array of new features and options are added, including a heated windshield with rain sensor and revised option packages. Also new this year are fresh 16-inch aluminum wheels and revised fabric choices.

A sight for sore eyes

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Sprinter 2500 140 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

I picked the vehicle up in Arkansas and drove it home to NC. The Sprinter was too inviting to cruise @ 82MPH(the preset limit). With a new engine I averaged about 20-21MPG and expect that to increase with seasoning. The family loves it! It's big enough to fit all the kids, their friends, strollers, etc. and make all the soccer moms drool. The Sprinter is easy to pick out anywhere (parking lots, highway, field of SUV's, city streets) If you buy one for non-commercial duty be prepared to answer many questions from inquiring minds. The questions are a whole lot better than rants and protests if this were a gas guzzling SUV of equal proportion. Perfect for biodiesel after warranty expires

Sprinter passenger van, misunderstood

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Sprinter 2500 140 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

I bought this for my family, and so are many other people now... but my dealer wants this passenger van to be a commercial vehicle and for me ot believe that rattles (mis-adjusted doors mostly) are normal. I fixed some of the problem myself after they told me it couldn't really be expected not to bang and rattle. Also had the common transmission leak (TSB was issued), and central locking system was beyond quirky and had to have the central locking timer module replaced (now is quirky, but according to the way the owners manual says it should be). Over all, this van is great!!! Roomy, quiet, comfortable, solid, peppy, and frugal on fuel. 20 miles per gallon of diesel, better when broken in.

Great design, so-so execution &

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Sprinter 2500 140 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Solid chassis with nice German styling and seats, the plain-but-functional well-executed variety. Fairly small diesel a real gem, getting the vehicle up and running quickly and smoothly. Downshifts: excellent for braking and respond correctly by not over-revving the willing little engine. Quiet when all the parts are tightly in place, it has a tendency to loosen its door stops and find the worst in choppy or pothole laden roads, but stays stable- driving. Dealer adjustments? They started refusing (right away)to get to the bottom of the many rattles: made service-after-sale = JOKE. Central locking: cryptic concept from Germany for hocuspocus, remote lock EQ unlock NE lock. Leaky Trans@3K miles

How do you move a family of 7 and all of their stuff around? In a Suburban or an Excursion: I don't think so! Your neighbors will hate you, and Greenpeace will picket your house, plus neither vehicle really has enough room to do the job properly and comfortably. Enter the Sprinter: Sure it's tall and ungainly, but boy, does this thing haul people and their stuff in comfort and safety. Rides better than an SUV, gets 22 MPG, and has the work ethic of a pack mule!
