Purchased the vehicle in 2003 second hand with 15000 miles from the owner (a one driver operator, not rental). This review was written in 2017 with only 110000 miles on it! It has been a great service van for my business but not without flaws. After warranty expired problems begin. Had to replace computer controller few times. Fuel hose went bad, chair adjustment lever broke, minor repairs here and there, water pump replaced, temperature control unit replaced, gas tank and pump replaced. Using a very accurate repair expenses controlled by business analysis I can say that the average repair cost is around $600 per year. This vehicle can't go farther than 10 trips without me worrying when would be the next problem. Dealer sticker say 12/15 miles per gallon but with very conservative driving my records show 17 miles per gallon. Overall I don't think it's the best value for vehicle but being optimistic as I am it is not the worst either. Hope this helps.
Bought used with 34k,the conversion package by Elk automotive is top rate. Has leather, cd, dvd, rear air, tv, rear stereo, all the goodies. Very easy to drive despite its size, ride is nice and quiet inside. With the 318 engines and regular service these things are allmost bullet-proof. As most manufacturers produce very few of the large van conversions any more and the new ones costing 50k that are available, I feel that for 20k I stole this thing. One of the best things is it's still under warranty with Chryslers 7/70 plan. These are the only way to travel, if you are buying for everyday use, it's probably not the right vehicle.
Power folding rear sofa, 13 inch tv that is game ready.(a must for the kids.) Generally I feel these vans are the best looking of the big three.
Maybe a little more foot room up front. But,hey ,if you're not driving why not lay on the sofa and watch tv?
This is a left over new van. Great deal
especially with the 0 % interest. Van
is very comfortable for travel. The
built in antennae for the tv is awsome
for watching local chanels. Van is very
quiet and rides smooth. Regency does a
great job on their conversion packages.
Awsome family vehicle
Conversion pkg.(tv dvd head phones
etc..) driving comfort and overall
quietness of the van due to the
extensive insulation pkg from Regency
more power the 5.2 litre has a little
trouble with the 5900lb. weight load.
Fuel economy is not the best at 15 mpg
on the highway.
I bought the van new with a conversion
package, Raised roof, TV, VCR etc..
2003 leftover good deals still
available with zero financing. I have a
5.2 Ltr V-8, plenty of power, nice
tight smooth ride. A little short on
leg room but overall very comfortable.
Lots of windows, everyone gets a window
seat. It looks great, I've been getting
loads of compliments.You won't be
V-8 with towing package. The kids love
the captain chairs and the television.
Too late for improvements they no
longer make the van. This I think is a
huge mistake. Dodge now makes a Sprinter
looks more comercial than consumer.
