2004 Dodge Sprinter Van 2500 118 WB 3dr Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

This vehicle fills a niche in the market. If you want an economic diesel vehicle that you can use for hauling stuff or hauling family, then this is only thing out there that fits the bill. A mini-van can't tow, a pickup won't seat 7 people and a giant SUV won't get 24 mpg. It has an amazing payload, decent towing capacity, loads of interior space and is fairly economic (although diesel is pricey). The van has distinctive styling on the outside. The interior is spartan - rubber floors and plastic. As a van, it uses rear leaf springs and tends to be bouncy when unladen. That said, it's not uncomfortable, particularly on highways. Sort of noisy if you're not into diesel rumble.


Favorite Features

Engine and transmission, economy, payload, distinctiveness, residual heater, low loading deck, space, tough


Suggested Improvements

Squeaks, rattles, shudders, vibrations, not very reliable, been back to the dealer so many times it makes my head spin, not many dealers can service them, parts expensive, 118 now discontinued

2004 Dodge Sprinter Van 2500 118 WB 3dr Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Fun to drive, comfortable, and quite handy. I travel across the US at least four times each year on business. The Sprinter is comfortable, handles well on the freeway and in town, and does not suffer from the top-heaviness it looks like it should. I find I can load it up but not load it down. When full of friends, family, and all types of luggage, the Sprinter behaves as it's named. But the rare time I load my Sprinter down with building supplies and concrete sacks, my Sprinter lacks a few muscles in the power department.


Favorite Features

Favorites are space, fuel economy, and lack of squeaks and rattles.


Suggested Improvements

I happy with my Sprinter as it is.

2004 Dodge Sprinter Van 2500 118 WB 3dr Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Solid vehicle. For a smaller footprint, more space than a Suburban. Seating for 8 regular sized people and their luggage. Economic for its size. Handles better than it would seem - not top heavy. Comfortable seating - real alternative to a giant SUV. More practical than a minivan - watch out for parking garages though.


Favorite Features

smooth, powerful turbo diesel engine, economic, tight turning circle, easy to park, utilitarian looks


Suggested Improvements

too much hard plastic in the interior, steering wheel needs to tilt, central locking button is confusing, radio is weak, needs a sliding window for the back
