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