Dodge sprinter 2004 , 140 wb passenger Very reliable vehicle so far but havent experienced a N.Y. winter yet, the summer driving was good . A smooth runner on clean roads , effortless to drive = cruise control option is a plus. Diesel engine was the main reason to own this as gas prices are driving everyone nuts , including me . Diesel prices are more realistic and this truck gets 500 + Mi to the tank . handeling is pretty good = turns on a dime . backing up is another story but like anything you get use to it in time . Interior space is amazing seating for 10 and cargo space in the very rear is very ample . Im 6 ft 3 so have to bend a lil to walk thru , Rear Ac unit makes me bend more . Instrument panel is well lit , but youll need to read the manual to understand all the symbols. Drawbacks= Entertaiment system is weak = am/fm cd player- by Becker? Air condition up front is weak = takes awhile to cool things down ,78-80 degrees outside temp, have the rear AC that helps things along = + Blind spots in rear view and RS passenger - added a mini mirror for the RS , looking to get a (back up camera). Seatbelt tends to do the anaconda on you / always pulling it loose . lol Seating is stiff an comfy optional - seat adj = + Steering wheel is stationary and the diameter is thin = added a steering wheel cover to bolster the feel. Tilt is available on the 2007 models ? Color choice = very limited mostly white but got mine in fire engine red = loud & proud Minimal interior noise rattle but its there when you hit a big bump= sliding door- rear door ?. Entering and exiting is a chore= for small people or older folk . Limited - dash & console space for the essentials (cell phone, keys ,cds , etc ) = 2 cup holders and a pen tray, and a small waste basket . But a super deep glove compartment =+ and map storage in the doors . Tough deal to wash and wax this baby yourself but worth it , compared to what they get at a detailer $$ All in all i really like it , its a head turner and its efficent to handle most traveling and hauling applications .

I bought this car in the summer season of August 2004. Since, I thought i was the first one to get the car, because nobody had it. but, then in 2005, I started seeing some. This car is neat. It has Big Cargo space, and wide, big seats. It seats 10 people, including the driver seat. It can be used as anything. It's overall, it's worth the great amounts of money. It saves gas...it's diesel. And, but, the ride comfort isn't that well. There's a big, Whoosh Du Du Du noise, from the engine. As well as the seat. It isn't comfortable. It's more described as a minibus, or a mini bus.
