worst van i ever owned
this car was the worst from day 1. Doors locks don't work, now the rear door doesn't open. Fan module went, intake manifold cracked and leaked fluid all over my pavers. windshield wipers motor went during snow storm. headlights go all the time. transmission just went and i only have 67,800 miles on this vehicle. then there's the list of small items.
65,000 miles and needs a new engine
2 weeks after we made our last payment the engine blew. We towed it to our mechanic and after he did $2400 worth of repairs, like replacing the water pump, the thermostat etc. he then realized the block was cracked and the head caskets were leaking. We took it to the dealer were we purchased the promaster they said $9800.00 to put in a new engine. Since it only had 65000 miles on it they had us contact the manufacturer to see if they would give us some help. The manufacturer said there was nothing they could do for us. It was no longer under any warranty. The dealer said there was nothing they could do for us. They only sell the product, they don’t make it. We should have traded it in years ago. It was always being repaired for something, since the day we bought it. We keep it perfectly maintained and have all of the records of maintenance and repairs. Now we we have a nice big paid for, hunk of junk. DO NOT BUY A RAM. THEY DO NOT STAND BEHIND THIER PRODUCT.
not much thought put into it
not designed for comfort. not designed well for the working person. electrical problems including door locks, and security problems including remote key, having to purchase new key and programming to computer. most disappointing thing was when during warranty window time had taken to dealer where it was purchased for an antifreeze/coolant leak and they said they could not find any leak. took to mechanic elsewhere and diagnosed needing radiator replacement from leak. Also returned to dealer to check front end alignment after vehicle pulling to one side, having to hold steering wheel, and they said that it was fine. Took vehicle to tire discounters and they said it was needing alignment and should have brought it sooner because of the obvious tire wear. Guess they do not like to do warranty repair. ☹️
