Sprinter: Utility to Leasure plus Economy
By Champ on


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


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.

Best 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!

Worst Features

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