2004 Dodge Sprinter Van 2500 High Roof 158 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

I bought a 2004 Dodge Sprinter new in 2006, had 500 miles on it.
This is the most un reliable vehicle I have ever owned, always something, front ac unit condenser, burned out 2 alternators, driveshaft carrier bearing, then the driveshaft, viabration in driveline somewhere, now the rear end or wheel bearing or ? sounds like I have mud grips on rear.
I have driven to 130K miles, I expected to get 250K but I cant stand this pos.
Costs a fortune to maintain.
I heard that UPS crushed their Sprinters at 120K miles because of maintenance and downtime.


Best Features

I love the fact that nobody will work on it and that everything cost 2-3 times what a Ford or Chevy part would cost. Soured me on everything german..

Review

Vehicle is continually in the shop and because there are very few Dodge dealerships that service it I have to drive it halfway across the state every time something goes wrong. I have had transmission leaks, transponder issues, turn signal issues, engine trouble lights, surface rust that they won't repair under warranty, AC pulley fell off, O2 sensor failures, etc. It has been so bad that they don't even list all the repairs on the sheet when I bring it in anymore. Fortunately I got the extended warranty but it's going to run out soon. I've read forums where people are having similar issues but every time I bring it to the dealership they say they never heard of these problems.


Best Features

MPG, Comfort, Drivability (turning radius not handling).


Worst Features

Fix problems. Buyers beware.

Review

So far, with 30K miles, the Mercedes
Sprinter has been very impressive.
Fuel economy is over 25 mpg with a
3500 version. 13.5K service intervals
for oil changes are a life saver, but
pricey due to full synthetic oil being
recommended. Only real annoyance is
excessive front tire wear due to the
factory alignment specs. Other than
that, this vehicle is economical,
surprisingly powerful.

Review

So far, with 90K miles, the Sprinter
has been very impressive. Fuel economy
is over 20 mpg with a 3500 version with
dual rear wheels. 10K service
intervals for oil changes are a life
saver, but pricey due to full synthetic
oil being recommended. Only real
annoyance is excessive front tire wear
due to the factory alignment specs.
Other than that, this vehicle is
comfortable, nimble, economical, quiet,
surprisingly powerful, and so far
bulletproof. If you can live with the
looks, and the fact that it won't fit
in the garage, it is well worth the
price premium over anything else on the
road that thinks it can compare for
both passenger and cargo service.


Best Features

Comfort, economy, ergonomics, utility


Worst Features

Need more front seat travel for taller individuals, a/c is a bit weak for Arizona summers
