2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500 High Roof 158 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
I bought a new Sprinter van 158 in. Wheelbase (cargo) right after hurricane Wilma flooded my step van. I brought it home started building shelves and tool storage for my business. Just got it done and the transmission goes out. After almost three weeks I have it back with a whole new transmission and I hope it stays running. It's a nice truck, low power, but I guess thats what you trade to get good mileage. The whole truck is thin sheet metal, I mean thin ! And there is rust showing on the roof of mine with less than 1000 miles on it. Also there is no frame unibody to save weight and improve mileage but not longevity in my opinion. It does go down the road good. It was noisy until I put in a bulkhead
Good fuel ecomomy, standing head room, good ride
Parts on hand for the trucks they sell & better quality control also more rust prevention.
