2006 Dodge Sprinter Van 140 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Purchased 2006 Sprinter for Electrical construction business. Dealership explained all the advantages of the vehicle- low maintenance, good mileage,long engine life. Maintenance and reliablitiy are a nightmare. Paint rusted in first year. Brake rotors have very limited life and are expensive to replace. Very few mechanics can work on the vehicle. Vehicle has been towed for blown turbo- resonator, burnt out starter relay wire, and frozen fuel(even with additives). If you have business this is the wrong vehicle for you. Manufacture does not back up many defects.


Favorite Features

Good mileage, Lots of room, handles well


Suggested Improvements

New paint application system, better brake designs( rotors should not need replacing after 30,000 miles)

2006 Dodge Sprinter Van 140 WB 3dr Ext Van (2.7L 5cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Purchased vehicle brand new. Was not told every 10,000 miles needed oil filter. Fuel filter, air filter total cots runs 275.00 dollars at a dealership. Lack of personal to work on this vehicle is terrible. First 6 months had transmission leak oil leak electrical problem leaky roof and my dome light collected water every time it rained. Also back door hinges pulled out of sheet metal. Business link program is a joke. I will have this vehicle paid off in 6 months and will go back to a Ford diesel. I do not suggest this vehicle for anytime of business due to its constant down time.


Favorite Features

The fuel economy was ok. Not the 25 miles to the gallon i was told at the dealership.


Suggested Improvements

More trained personnel as well as a better made product. Its interior needs major improvement and the cost of maint, should be more affordable.

Review

The Sprinter with its IMAX view windshield, up high seating position, great brakes, peppy acceleration, and flat out the most interior space available. You can't beat this vehicle for a general work van or travel companion. Get this! This big van averages 22 MPG around town with hwy mix. I tow a 3500 pound boat and still got 19.8 on a trip up to the N.GA mountains. What a van. If there is a drawback it is that the steering collumn does not telescope or tilt. This is an ergonomic issue that you quickly adapt to. The motor noise is slightly more than my old Chevrolet gas van but still quieter than most diesels. Very quiet outside. Van is goverened to 80MPH.


Favorite Features

2.7L 5 cyl. diesel is a great motor. A shame it is no longer available in 2007 models. Love the IMAX view windshield. Panorama! Mercedes makes a great vehicle. Very thoughtful in every spec of the vehicle design. Usablilty is unsurpassed!


Suggested Improvements

Adjustable steering column. Hope the South Carolina plant can produce the '07 Models as well as they do across the Atlantic.
