Vehicle2008 Dodge Sprinter Cargo 2500 144 WB 3dr Van (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
ReviewI was very hesitant about buying this van. It is my 1st import or diesel vehicle. Bought this vehicle w/650 miles, 144" & std roof. Dealer titled previously. Drove it home on a hwy (150miles) @ ~15F and got 19.7mpg (speed 65mph). Drove it on another hwy trip (300miles) @ ~30F and got 23mpg (speed 55-65mph). No crankcase oil used so far @ 1400miles. Starts unbelievably fast and w/o assist @ 0F (no cords for block heaters, etc. - only 1 battery). No exhaust fumes (completely clear - even in the winter from a cold start), quiet, economical and fast. This diesel van is not like the domestics out there. Some great minds must have come together to build this vehicle. Nice vehicle.
Best FeaturesEconomy, diesel engine, transmission, reheat/auxiliary electric heat functions, nimble handling/braking, traction control, comfortable seats, very nice front interior, cargo height (great for mobility needs, business, etc.) and superior visability.
Worst FeaturesCargo's interior - it would be nice to have the ability to upfit with seats, windows and interior paneling/insulation a little easier from a DIY prospective and some simple dealer/mfg. assistance.
