The Good: Sleek styling, turns heads, plenty of room and comfort. IT IS FUN TO DRIVE DAILY. The Bad: I was getting 7.5 mpg in the city if my wife is driving (its her lead foot not mine :) ...) and 17.0 mpg on the highway. The Fix: Got an air filter , had alignment, tires rotated and balanced. Got a locking gas cap ( the price of 89 is getting to be steep), ohh and stopped using cheap gas ( trash in ,trash out). I only now use B of P gas. I did not reprogram the engine for 87, if the engineers wanted or thought it made the Hemi run better on it (89) they would suggest it. I did program my Aspen for 20 more HP, giving it a tad over 400 HP now. The overall verdict: If you did your research you knew what the Aspen was when you bought it. You trade fuel economy for power, performance, and room. I now get a combined 11.5 mpg and 20.2 on the highway. If you are going to drive like Mad Max, have a few bucks in your pocket you will need it for the ride back to Thunderdome. I LOVE THIS TRUCK. My wife is a Honda Nut and loves this truck ( she has an accord for summer and a Pilot for winter). My girls love the truck. Do regular maintenance and you will be fine as with any vehicle. My last Chrysler was a Cirrus. It was dependable also, stylish at the time and fast. I am a GM man, I mean I LOVE CAMERO. I've owned multiple Buick Centurys, Cadillac DeVille, Olsdmobile Cutlass. I even owned a... a ....Ford Tempo... I bought my 2007 Chrysler Aspen Hemi with 64k on it and the one owner towed a lot with it. It was a steal at 16k. The dealer even fixed the park assist for free. I drive a lot, but I don't tow. I love the Chevy and Cadillac, but for the money, the Aspen is the best deal.

Love the style of the Aspen and it handles beautifully. Looks sharp and has plenty of room for kids, sports equipment, animals, coolers, etc when traveling. Only drawback is it doesn't get the greatest gas mileage (might have something to do with the HEMI). I love my Aspen and would recommend it to anyone. My experience on Cars.com was very positive!

The sleeper SUV

by from Californa on May 23, 2010

Great car, rides nicely, strong engine, good interior. Best SUV I have ever owned. This is a sleeper vehicle and should be reviewed more strongly that it is.

Good Upgrade from a older truck.

It's the best SUV I have had so far! It is a outstanding vehicle. Quiet ride, powerful when needed and it got all the toys and whistles (I was lucky to find a J Package one) to include NAV, DVD, and everything else. The only bad side is that it takes $100+ to fill up and drinks gas like a camel in the desert, but with a HEMI that is common and if I was looking for a gas economy SUV, I would go for a hybrid Toyota, but I was looking for a HEMI forever and I found it!!

THE 2007 ASPEN I RECENTLY PURCHASED WITH THE HEMI 5.7 LITRE ENGINE IS THE SMOOTHEST DRIVING SUV I HAVE EVER OWNED. THE FEATURES ARE ENDLESS THE BODY STYLE IS AERODYNAMIC AND IT PULLS MY 16.5 FOOT FISHING BOAT WITH LITTLE OR NO EFFORT. IF YOU R LOOKING FOR GAS MILEAGE PASS ON THE ASPEN BUT IT RIDES LIKE A LINCOLN CONTINENTAL AND IS DEFINITELY A LONG DISTANCE COMFORT MACHINE. MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT CHRYSLER STOPPED MAKING THESE BEAUTYS IN 2009. I HAVE OWNED A 1999 TAHOE, SWEET RIDE AND A 2001 YUKON AND BY FAR THE ASPEN BLOWS THEM AWAY IN CARGO SPACE, STANDARD FEATURES, LUXURY, RIDE , COMFORT, ETC. IF U GET A CHANCE I WOULD DEFINITELY PICK ONE OF THESE SWEET RIDES UP.

Recently traded for my Aspen...love driving it. Very comfortable and stylish with lots of room. However, after trading I discovered with issue with the gas tank over spilling. Then read all the reviews of people experiencin the same thing. Lesson learned..I will defiantely read reviews BEFORE tradinig next time. Dealer cost to repair tank and gas gauge (which if off) was $500+ :( My husband is a do-it-yourselfer and plans to try to repair himself. Other than that - lovin' my Aspen!

Luxurious and Capable of Kids!

I am a busy person, I need a fast and luxurious car to keep me and my kids happy, this Chrysler Aspen provides perfectly, I love the exterior design with the chrome, and the standard AWD is amazing for acceleration and safety, The HEMI lacks a little in get-up-and-go but once its off, it flies. The Interior design is a bit drab, but the lighting and navigation is excellent, the moonroof is fitting, and the roof-racks are perfect for our trips to the Colorado mountains, and florida in winter. The gas mileage is not pleased, although for all this you have to sacrifice in something, The only car that compares is the Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban. I buy them used, they are still better than any-other ford SUV. Someone crashed into the back of me on the freeway, and I just had a dent while his whole front was smashed in, Its a tough vehicle, but also kid friendly, I have three, Imagine that! :)

I've never recieved so many compliments before!

The wife and I went shopping for a new van and ended up buying a new Aspen after test driving it and the Chrysler Town and Country. The prices were comparble, but the Aspen just outperformed in every way. Everyone who sees us and rides in it can't believe how attractive it is on the exterior and interior. I've had people ask me in parking lots if it is a Caddilac. We purchased the fully loaded model with the hemi and it rides and performs better than any vehicle I've owned. We've taken it on a road trip to Vegas and the ride and entertainment options were a big hit with the 4 hr drive there and back. The fuel economy was 19 mpg on the road trip so it was what I expected for the size and conditions. If you push the hemi you get the power but the gas milage drops. I like the comfort of knowing if I have to pass a big truck or bus on the highway I can make it safely. The only problem I have with the Aspen is fighting with my wife who's going to drive it. I'm sold on Aspens!
